    Hey y'all,
    does anyone know how Cal Poly calculates your GPA when transferring? Do they look at the GPA you earned in your major specific/prereq classes, or just an overall? Thanks

    @owls10: Your GPA is calculated based on all CSU transferable courses.

    Major: Business Admin. Concentrate in Entrepreneurship & Management
    GPA: 3.8
    IGETC: Four more classes
    College: Hartnell College
    30+ of work a week (internship & general labor)
    Applied: Cal Poly, USC, Baylor, Texas A&M, Northeastern, Univ. Utah, Univ. Washington, Cornell, Univ. Minnesota.

    Curious... I don’t see anyone applying to privates or out of state on this thread and the year before. What’s stopping y’all from applying? Many privates are generous with grants and many out of state schools give transfer scholarships. Take my #1 choice USC for example, it’s cheaper to attend USC than a UC if your low income.

    For me, I'm planning to go to a competitive and cheap Cal State school for Undergrad, then going to a target school for my MBA (Business Finance Major). Would like to save some money for Grad School instead of paying for an expensive undergrad.

    I think it is going to be Monday for the first wave of acceptances. I have looked at past years' threads and that is the pattern.
