CCC transfer to UC (hopefully) :/


<p>I'm new here and I've been reading this board a lot, it's really helpful.</p>

<p>I'm getting a little upsetting feeling about my application and whether or not I will be accepted anywhere...ehh.</p>

<p>Here are my stats: </p>

<p>Applied to: UCLA, UCB, UCSB, SDSU, CSU Fullerton
From: Moorpark Community College
GPA: 3.0 (uggh) Doesn't look like I'll bring this up. Stats is killing my brain. I may have a 3.11 by the beginning Spring, but that could be the best I get. There's no way to get A's in all of my classes in Fall 07 Semester.
EC's/Employment: Yearbook and Link Crew in 12th grade, Working full time as a bank teller (35-40 hours a week)
IGETC Completion: Will be done in Spring 08; I will graduate with my AA
Major: Communications </p>

<p>UCB and UCLA are a stretch...I know. But I would feel guilty not applying, you know?</p>

<p>What do you guys think?</p>

<p>Can anyone help me out?</p>

<p>w/ 3.0... I think you are in for CSU fullerton and SDSU you might have a chance for UCSB but risky.. UCLA/UCB no chance...</p>

<p>UCLA Communications requires at least a 3.5 GPA for consideration and you can only apply as a junior. So you might be able to improve your GPA if you're a sophomore, I don't remember you saying what you are applying under.</p>

<p>Even if there is a transfer guarantee betweeen UCSB and the CCC, it'll be risky still?</p>

<p>So if I'm in my second year of CCC, I'm applying as a junior, correct?
If I waited a year and improved my GPA, would I have a better chance?</p>

<p>sure you will but it's waste of time! Just join the TAG for UCSB! but i think it's too late for fall 08 applicants..</p>

<p>UCLA/UCB: Far reach
UCSB: Slight reach
Rest: Match</p>

<p>So....the TAG I have doesn't help me to get into UCSB?</p>

<p>Did you complete the TAG?</p>

<p>Yes. And on the UC application I just put in that I have the TAG agreement for UCSB because it said that no paper work was required just that I completed: </p>

<p>60 semester units by Spring 2008
Maintained a 3.0
Attended a California Community College</p>

<p>Am I right in that?</p>

<p>Thats right killer22 </p>

<p>also i think your job will help you out some, not sure if it will be enough though for la / berkeley, but it's good.</p>

<p>thank you so much
I've just been really confused and I've been stressing out.</p>

<p>When do we hear back from the colleges?</p>

<p>If you live up to your TAG, you're in, no stress.</p>

<p>Talk to the Transfer Center staff at your college to make sure everything's in order.</p>

<p>depending on the schools (UC's at least) mid march to may you'll hear back</p>

<p>On the UCSB it says for TAG you must spend the last 30 units of in residence at your college. Whats up with that? I don't live on campus or anything but otherwise I can check off that TAG on the app. Any ideas?</p>

<p>It means that you have to have at least 30 units as a full-time student enrolled at your primary school that you're transferring from, I suspect.</p>

<p>"in residence" doesn't necessarily mean "living at."</p>

<p>heres what it says:</p>

<p>Complete the last 30 of your 60 or more UC-transferable semester units in residence at a California community college (you may complete summer session course work at an institution other than a California community college without jeopardizing your residency status).</p>

<p>So that doesn't mean I have to live on campus to be eligible? I meet all the other reqs, should I check off the TAG on the app then?</p>

<p>No, you don't have to live on-campus. It just means you have to be enrolled.</p>
