<p>Hi, as the title of the thread states, I was wondering if this can be done?
I checked most colleges and they say that I have to send any transcripts I have received from post-secondary institutions. I did my first year at UCLA, as an international student, but finances got bad in my family and I'm no longer there.
The problem is that I made the mistake of taking a really heavy courseload with no "general education" whatsoever during my first year of engineering (2.73 GPA); contributing factors could have been adapting, etc, but let's not go there.</p>
<p>My only hope of finishing college in the US is getting enough financial aid at privates, but I know that they would be intolerable regarding my atrocious 1st year GPA. I do, however, have great HS GPA and good scores.</p>
<p>Would I be automatically rejected if I don't send my UCLA transcript?
I wouldn't mind starting over, but if it is not possible, I'd have to go to lower tier private colleges, which would be quite sad.</p>
