Hello everyone, the title basically explains what this thread is all about. I have seen many threads about CC to UC transfers, and even UC to UC transfers, but I wanted to make one specifically for us engineering students! I'll start off, and we'll go from there. Please try to fill in as many sections as possible, and add some if you think they are important. Good luck everybody!

Transferring from: UC Santa Cruz
Transfer level: Junior level transfer
Major: Electrical Engineering
GPA: Currently 3.4, expecting a 3.5 by the end of this Fall quarter
Applying to: UCSD, UCSB, UCI
GE's Completed: No(Have 2 left, will not be getting UC reciprocity)
Prereqs Done: All will be done by Spring 2013, except for UCSB's intro C programming class(I will be taking a C data structures class winter quarter, explaining reason why I couldn't take intro class in the application)
ECs: Vice-Chair of UCSC IEEE, Project leader for an Arduino based UAV a group is building, starting to work on a micromouse for the Micromouse competition in spring. Help set up/mentor younger students on small engineering projects IEEE hosts.
Reason for Transferring: UCSC has no MechE department, and I am interested in a a ME minor. I also feel that I could benefit from a larger engineering school with a more established department
Additional Comments: I will explain my mediocre gpa, and say how my projects and hands on experience really helped the theoretical concepts learned in the classroom
