Hi everyone, I’m new here,
I’m a freshman at a California private college and I am hoping to transfer to UCI as a sophomore. My college GPA will be about 3.7 at the end of fall as a public health major taking chem and calc, I am also in the honors program at my private college which is ranked ~50 in US news report national (idk what the ranking really means!). I chose that school instead of any other option bc my parent works there (tuition is free, so I wouldn’t consider going through CC), but I never felt like a good fit at the school and I want to transfer.
HS GPA 3.7UW
Strong EC’s: 2HS sports, multiple jobs, one internship, volunteering
I am on track to have 51+16(credits) credits by the end of freshman year if that helps!
I understand I am the “low man” bc CC junior standing students among others get priority, so can anyone give me any advice and guess my chances of transferring with sophomore standing?
(FYI i did apply last year but was not accepted as a freshman applicant) Thank you in advance! I can take brutally honest feedback
I also have a specific question about prereqs. I know one is taking a full year of biology, but does that apply to me because I’m a sophomore transfer? I won’t be able to fit a full year of bio (only one-quarter of it) into my schedule through spring quarter, will this disqualify me?
