possible transfer student with a few questions

<p>the first question i have deals with the IGETC and completion of lower division GE. i heard that for some of UCSD's colleges the IGETC will complete all lower division GE requirements, but for others additional classes will need to be taken once at UCSD. the question is which of the UCSD colleges would require me to complete more lower division requirements? also do i get to choose which college i go to? is it selected by major or any other criteria? the last question is what my chances are to get accepted as a transfer student. current UC GPA is 3.3 (GPA will prob go up to 3.4ish when applying", will have TAG done, major is philosophy, and i don't have any EC's there is only one class on assist for philosophy and it isn't offered at my CCC, but i have one and will have another philosophy class done when i apply. thanks for your time and help!</p>

<p>TAG = You're in. (Just make sure you actually meet the req's)</p>

IGETC is applicable at Earl Warren, Sixth, Thurgood Marshall, and John Muir colleges only. Courses completed prior to transfer will be applied toward the college’s own lower-division requirements. Revelle students must also complete the remainder of the college’s requirements. Students at Eleanor Roosevelt College must complete three academic quarters of the “Making of the Modern World” sequence in addition to the IGETC requirements. They must also complete the remainder of the college’s general-education requirements.

<p>yep with TAG and a 3.3/3.4 you're in, just rank muir/marshall/warren as your top choices and you'll be fine.</p>

<p>Thanks for the info Vertex and jrmorse!</p>

<p>Even if you complete IGETC, you still have to do certain General Ed classes for each of the 6 undergrad colleges.</p>

<p>i thought that i would be able to TAG but i dont think i will because from what i was just reading i have to complete a transferable math BEFORE this fall, and thats when im going to take it. I also have to take 1 IGETC class (Spanish 2) in the spring. so this means i wont be able to do a TAG right? without a Tag would i still have a chance of getting admitted to UCSD philosophy with a 3.3-3.4 GPA? thanks</p>

<p>Unless it changed, you only have to have the math and english completed during Fall and the rest of IGETC can be completed during Spring.</p>

<p>i hope so, i'm going to look into it more.</p>

<p>I'm not sure what TAG says, but when I transferred I didn't have the math class done until spring and I was TAG admitted. I didn't even check the "TAG" box when I applied and I was still TAG'ed by admissions. I asked why that happened and they said that completing IGETC automatically TAG's you. Weird, but that's what happened in my case.</p>
