I plan to send CSU applications in October 2016. As of now, I am currently in community college and a big chunk of my credits only transfer to CSUs (not UCs). My GPA is a 4.0, but I'm not so sure if that will last for the next two semesters. I am the president of a club on campus and I also work as a tutor on campus. What is required to guarantee admission to a CSU, let's say Fullerton, San Jose, Sacramento, Sonoma, and Long Beach? Coming in as a transfer student, do I need to show high school SAT scores? Do I need to write any essays? Letter of recommendations needed? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
