Is there any hope of me getting admitted?

<p>I am a community college student and already submitted my application back on Saturday as a Sociology major. However, my transferable GPA is 2.63 and it is due to a D in both Intermediate Algebra and Elementary Japanese. I got D's in both of them, because I overburdened myself by taking the maximum 18 units last spring. I'm repeating them both and have an A in Japanese and B in Math so far, but I am uncertain I can get admitted. Especially since I found out that UCR only looks at GPA for transfer students and does not look at the personal statements nor anything else. I know I can get a 2.8-2.9 after this semester, but it still looks grim for me. Be honest, is there actually any hope of me getting in to UCR?</p>

<p>Honestly, your chances are not very good. You could probably get into Northridge.</p>

<p>you need a 3.0 GPA to be considered “competitive” according to an admissions representative from UCR </p>
