out of state transfer to CA

<p>Hi, i am new here and i was wondering what universities in CA i can get in to. I have 3.57 gpa with 47 semester credit, majoring in economic/business. I come from a 4 year private university in NY(pace university). Im in need of some sugestion of what school I should apply to. thanks</p>

<p>I would say that the University of California/Cal State Unv system is a bit of a reach Considering the priority the states and UCs place on California (esp community college) transfer students.</p>

<p>I'm not exactly sure what type of school environment you're looking for but to start, I can direct you to some private schools such as Loyola Marymount University, Pepperdine U, U of San Diego, U of San Francisco, Saint Mary's College (of California), Santa Clara University. Are you looking for any Lib Arts schools?</p>

<p>In regard to the UCs I would still encourage you to look at Irvine, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Riverside, and perhaps Davis. In terms of cal states check out Chico, San Diego, and Cal-Poly. </p>

<p>Judging by other criteria such as school involvement/ECs and essay you never know until you give it a go!</p>

<p>If you have any other questions, don't be afraid to ask.</p>

<p>Veralyn is right about UCs and Cal States being a reach. The UCs reject 4.0 transfers all the time due to lack of space. Your chances are significantly higher in the Cal State system because your GPA is above their average. Because both systems accept transfers based on major prep, I'd suggest doing some research about the schools online and seeing which schools will accept the highest number of your classes. If you go to a school's website, you should be able to look up your major under the prospective student link and it will tell you which lower level classes you need. UCs and Cal States both require transfers to have 60 semester units completed by the end of the spring semester before they transfer. </p>

<p>Don't hesitate to apply for any of the schools in the public system that you are interested in, just be realistic about how messy the current state of affairs is. </p>

<p>I'd also reccomend looking into some of the privates that were mentioned, however I hesitate to direct you to any specific school because I'm not as familiar with economics programs in the private system.</p>

<p>thanks alot !</p>
