Yet another math question and an uncommon application plan
Dear wise community,
My daughter earned California Certificate of Proficiency (High School Diploma Equivalent) and went to community college full time for 2.5 years, at a younger than typical age. She then went to a high school anyway last Fall, and plans to transfer to UC for Fall 2018.
To disclose full information while preserving her transfer-ability, we plan to put her last homeschool and Certificate of Proficiency information on UC transfer application's "last high school attended" section, and explain her current high school in the additional info section.
Q1. Would this be the best approach? Anything that can make this plan better?
Also, she took Trigonometry last year and is taking Calculus this year at her high school, and has never took a college math course. But,
Her community college said she met IGETC Area 2 with her high school Trigonometry so it will certify her IGETC without any college math course.
UC (Berkeley) said she met Quantitative Reasoning requirement with SAT Math Score of 600+.
Q2. I understand that not having a math course by Fall 2017 is a negative element because they can't see if she is really ready. I think her problem is mitigated because, 1. She took transferable science courses - Intro Chemistry, General Biology, and Algebra-Based Physics - at community college, 2. Decent SAT Math Score, 3. Passed AP Exams for courses that normally require Algebra - AP Environmental Science & Micro Economics already. 4. Taking Trigonometry and Calculus in high school.
I would feel much better to have an actual college math credit, but it turned out to be logistically impossible. What do you think? Would UC Berkeley take it for L&S department intended Art Studio major? She has a very high college GPA, 10 major prep courses, and IGETC will be completed by Spring 2018 when she take an online college English Composition for Area 1B and pass AP European History for Area 3B.
FYI, UC Berkeley does not include art portfolio for even intended Art majors, and will review it only after she is first admitted to L&S department, so I believe the above information is pretty much all they will review to decide on her application.
If she fails on all her UC applications - 4~5 campuses - she will take another year of community college courses. But she says she would be really ready to move on to UC by next Fall and would prefer very much to not spend another year at community college.
