What if I do not submit all transcripts to a UC
I went to a community college in northern California and hated it, after enrolling for 2 semesters i withdrew from many classes and had a GPA lower than 2.0, but recently moved to los angeles and am now in honors classes with a 4.0 GPA and over 30 credits (reatking SOME classes but not all). I am on track to apply to UCs and USC this fall. Would I have to submit my transcripts and horrible GPA from my first Community College? Do I benefit more if I do or do not? Does a FAFSA block on my first school transcripts help so I do not have to submit those (and how do i request a block)? Would this affect my amount of credits/GPA at my current LACC?? Need advice & opinions please10 replies
