Year of fine arts requirement
My daughter is currently a junior.We would be OOS for California, She was reviewing the curriculum requirements for UCSD and noticed she does not have the year of fine arts because she has taken business and computer science classes as her electives in high school. She is researching schools, and is very interested in some California schools. She is trying to figure out if she has to squeeze in 2 semesters of fine arts her senior year. Can anyone tell me if their kids got in without having a year of fine arts? She is Science and math focused and wants to study Biomedical Engineering. She has a 35 ACT, 4.6 GPA, and will have taken 11 AP’s and 3 dual enrollment classes. She does not want the fine arts requirement to eliminate her chances, buts squeezing in 2 semesters of fine arts will take away her lunch for her senior year.15 replies
