Will Colleges Know?
I'm a first year at a CC, so I still have some time before I transfer, but I have a question about my major req's.
I spoke with a UCLA rep last week and was asking him about a dilemma that I'm currently facing with calculus, one of my major req's. (I'm a business major btw, wanting to transfer to UCLA [under bus. econ], UCB, or USC)
I took calculus (150A,150B) my junior year in HS through a CSU and got C's both semesters. When I applied, I had listed calculus as an AP class on my application because "technically" according to the UC website, our school has calc listed as an AP class (even though it was taken through a CSU, which means I HAVE a transcript at the CSU...).
I asked the rep whether it was possible for me to retake the class to earn a higher grade, but he told me that I couldn't retake the course because if I did, the credits wouldn't even count.
My question is, if I don't even list calc as having taken it through another university (like what I did on my app in HS), will colleges that I apply to even KNOW? Or will they somehow find out that I have a transcript at the CSU even if I don't list the school? (Because WITH calc factored into my current GPA [I took summer classes at the CC], I only have a 3.5, and it'll take me FOREVER to bring my GPA back up.
