UCI Changing Majors as a Junior Transfer?
So I'm in a bit of a predicament at the moment. I will be applying as a Junior Transfer this upcoming Fall to UCI and wanted to apply as a Biological Science major. I noticed UCI compared to the other UC schools have more required pre-reqs. By the end of Spring 2018 I'll have complete a year of Gen Bio w/ lab, a year of Calculus, a year of Gen Chem w/ Lab, a year of Physics based Calculus, IGETC, and only a semester of O Chem w/ lab. UCI requires you have a whole year of O-Chem in order to apply as a transfer for Bio majors... is it still possible to get in to UCI with only a semester of O-Chem completed? I could take O-Chem II during the summer 2018 but I saw somewhere (I think) that all of the required pre-reqs have to be finished by Spring 2018. If that's not possible, I was thinking of instead applying to either the School of Pharmaceutical Science or Physical Science (as a Chemistry major) since I would have all the pre-reqs completed for those majors, and then if I got in to change my major to Biology. I tried looking online to see if that was possible since I would be coming in as a Junior (it might be too late, or since they're different schools it might not be possible to switch schools that late in college), but couldn't find a concrete answer.
Would very much appreciate any answers or advice.
