I lost my TAG, is there still any hope for me?

<p>I lost my TAG to UC Davis because I had a terrible semester this fall. My gpa is now in the 3.1 range. My major is Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning in the Agricultural and Environmental Sciences department. From what I see it's not very impacted but I don't know what the real deal is. Anyways I'm freaking out, I feel like my life is over and that I ruined my only chance for success. Staying another year in community college is not an option, and don't ask me why, it just isn't. Is all hope lost for me?</p>

<p>Maintaining</a> GPA for TAG</p>

<p>Seems like hope is not all lost.</p>

<p>Hey, I understand your situation. My GPA dropped (I believe) from a 3.67 to 3.37 because I got straight Cs, and maybe a B or 2 so it may stay at 3.43. I'm no longer in the running for UCB/UCLA.</p>

<p>3.67 -> 3.43 does not look good. A 3.1 is something to really worry about. In terms of rank, UCD outranks UCSC by leagues and the average GPA for transfer to UCSC is: Mean GPA of transfer students admitted for fall 2011: 3.33</p>

<p>UCD doesn't publish an exact figure of their average GPA but UCD is comparable to UCSB, which has a 3.44 mean GPA.</p>

<p>So, if you want to transfer to UCD without a TAG,I'd only feel safe if I had a 3.4+ GPA</p>

<p>@elephapple: It says I must maintain a 3.2 or higher prior to enrollment. If my gpa drops below 3.2 this semester then wouldn't that mean I didn't maintain a 3.2? </p>

<p>Damn it my life is over :(</p>

<p>you need a 3.2 by end of spring 2012</p>

<p>I forgot to mention that I'm probably going to get a D in one of my classes. I didn't feel very confident on my final. So the D kills my tag all together regardless.</p>

<p>what class?</p>

<p>It's an economics class.</p>

<p>If you receive a D I believe that does nullify your TAG. I asked a friend who transferred to UCD this semester because I realized a friend of ours is probably in the same situation. </p>

<p>She did not follow her TAG requirements last year; I believed she dropped a pre-req course. Her advice is to contact the person referenced in the e-mail from Davis regarding your TAG. She ended up having to do an appeal for admissions with the help of her TAG representative, who essentially told her her acceptance was assured. </p>

<p>The best thing to do is contact UCD and keep in constant contact with them.</p>

<p>Why are you getting Ds in your pre reqs?</p>

<p>I'm not good at economics alright. I tried my best, it was a challenging class.</p>

<p>im not attacking you, just relax.</p>

<p>I'm just confused because don't you know the magnitude for fall semester? Why didn't you just drop.</p>

<p>Because I thought I could do it, and didn't want to give up over adversity. But it turned out to be too much for me. I guess there's no use in complaining any more, what's done is done.</p>

<p>raise it back to a 3.2 by the end of spring</p>

<p>@Ryan2136: I'm not feeling very confident about my economics final. I think I'm going to get a D in that class, and if I get a D it doesn't matter if I get a 3.2 by the end of spring.</p>

<p>Quietdude, you are to be commended for sticking out the class and doing your best to pass it. There are other CC students who do not have your intestinal fortitude who think the answer is to drop a course as soon the going gets a little bit tough rather than manning up and making a maximum effort to pass it.</p>

<p>I would not be surprised at all if a student who drops a prerequisite course listed as "in progress" during the Fall semester also loses their TAG after the January update.</p>
