CC desperate to transfer, please help!

<p>I went to a CC in 2006 and was pretty half hearted. As a result I got:</p>

<p>4 W's
MIcro econ-A
Macro econ-B
College alg-A
Acct 1- F (ouch!)</p>

<p>Eng1 & Eng2-B
Psych 1- C
Chem 10-B
Philo intro- B</p>

<p>Now, after going back to school in 2011 for summer, fall, and this winter:</p>

<p>Acct 1-A
Math 2-A
Psych2-A
Bus 1-A
Acct 2-A</p>

<p>My GPA is 3.5 right now and with 70 units, assuming all A's, I should have 3.67 by the end of spring. Being the screw-up that I am, I did not take any SAT's or ACT exams. </p>

<p>What are my chances for UCLA as business/econ? Also, what can I do outside of getting A's that will improve my chances?</p>

<p>I have 4 years of sales experience and owned my own contracting business for a year.I'm also going to be working as a contractor while going to school. I appreciate any input!</p>

<p>Sounds like you have pretty good ECs--good job on that front.</p>

<p>I wouldn't apply to UCLA as a BizEcon major with anything less than a 3.90 or maybe a 3.80. Sorry, but it's a very competitive major. Straight Econ is almost as difficult to be admitted into. . . . If you're really set on Econ, you might want to consider a school lower on the totem pole than UCLA, or apply to UCLA as something like a Math/Econ major: the average admitted GPA is much lower. (To see these statistics, see here: Profile</a> of Admitted Transfer Students by Major, Fall 2011 - UCLA Undergraduate Admissions)</p>

<p>UC's do not take spring grades into consideration.</p>

<p>Your GPA is very low for UCLA. (3.93 avg gpa admittance, 16 percent admit rate for 2011)</p>

<p>However, considering your fairly unique situation, your chances could be decent if you managed to write an amazing personal statement that somehow resonated with admissions.</p>

<p>By the way, I hope you applied to other schools.</p>

<p>In addition to what the above said, UCs don't look at SAT/ACT for transfers</p>

<p>I'm also considering USC, but I haven't applied to any schools yet. I realize that my grades in the past will haunt me a little longer so I'm applying this fall. That being said, would spring be taken into consideration?</p>

<p>I'm a very optimistic guy and I'm willing to do whatever it takes. Thanks for the comments guys!</p>

<p>Thanks for that link. It's very useful. I know I may not have good chances but I just need the best chances I can have to apply.</p>

<p>Edit:Just saw the numbers for math/econ. Definitely looks more promising than buz/econ, but would the business classes i've taken and my switch in majors been seen as a lack of commitment?</p>

<p>please be aware of what math/econ is. It is not regular economics. It's the "Caltech" of economics. It's very math heavy. You have to take Calc I, II, and III, diff equations, and linear algebra. </p>

<p>If you don't think this will be a fun midterm, then I wouldn't major in math econ.
