Chance of Being Accepted to CSULB English Program?

<p>I want to start college again and obtain a BA in English after a 3 year break.</p>

<p>Do I have a chance to transfer to CSULB with a 3.15 GPA into the English Lit major?</p>

<p>In the past, I've received an AA from a CC and transferred to San Diego State University with a transfer GPA of 3.65.</p>

<p>While attending SDSU as a Business major, I have 1 F from Managerial Accounting and 2 Fs from Business Calculus because I stopped attending classes without officially withdrawing or dropping. Ouch. I just was not grasping Math and Accounting very well to be honest. It dragged my GPA down to 3.15 (SDSU GPA - 2.25).</p>

<p>I realize that I truly appreciate learning and reading about English literature so a major change is definitely needed so my question is:</p>

<p>Will the 3 Fs from classes that aren't within my major screw my chance of being accepted to the CSULB English program? The English program at CSULB isn't impacted btw.</p>

<p>Let me know your opinions, thank you! :)</p>

<p>Well considering English isn't an impacted major, I think you should be fine and have a fairly good shot at getting in.</p>

<p>Is there anyway were you can remove those F's from your transcripts at SDSU?... I think if you request to change you major you can drop those F's from your transcripts or atleast remove them out of your GPA when those classes are no long a part of your curriculum for your major.</p>


<p>Thanks for the input. I hope to have a good chance too.</p>


<p>I don't think there's an option to do that sadly. -_-</p>

<p>I can go back to CC and take transfer classes to bring up the GPA to a stable point (also get back into the college feel and work) as I'm waiting to apply to CSULB for the 2013 school year into their English program.</p>
