Provisions of admissions- freshman?

<p>Are there any other provisions of admissions other than getting c's or better in classes and graduating high school?</p>

<p>so if i got like 3 or 4 c's is that good for the provisions?</p>

<p>If you received a provisional admission it will list the specific provisions in your letter of acceptance, else you only need to achieve a C or better for the courses you are currently enrolled in and graduate. There is a possibility of being rescinded if you are unable to achieve a mere 2.0 for the credits you are currently attempting.</p>

<p>do you need a 3.0 though, or does passing all of your classes make it?</p>

<p>Either you did not read my previous comment or could not understand the answer. Therefore, I will reiterate my previous comment in a different way. For admissions, you must graduate with a C or better, which equates to a 2.0, for ALL your classes that you are currently enrolled in. If you were granted a provisional admission, it will indicate the specific provisions of your acceptance.</p>

<p>ohh! phew. i thought it was a 3.0 per each semester, but all c's which didnt make sense! thanks. haha i dont know where i got the 3.0 idea from.</p>

<p>but i hear you're out of state? congrats!</p>

<p>You must maintain a 2.0 for all your courses after--not prior--being offered a letter of admissions. As you can observe, once one is accepted by a UC it is not difficult to avoid being rescinded. </p>

<p>And thank-you for the congratulatory remarks. However, I am not a freshman like yourself, I will be graduating next year.</p>

<p>have you gone to UCR since your freshman year?</p>

<p>So you only need a 3.0 or above until you're accepted, then just passing thereafter right?</p>

<p>what's your favorite aspect of UCR?</p>

<p>Sorry, I thought you were asking the provisions of acceptance after being granted admissions. The admissions process is complex and the admission committee considers many factors in its comprehensive review of its applicants. I am not positive on the exact formula that the admissions committee uses, but if you are attempting to gain admissions to UC Riverside you must at least have an unweighted high school GPA of 3.60 and a SAT score of 1600+. That may or may not gain you acceptance, for the UC system is attempting to limit the amount of freshmen they accept due to the budget crisis, therefore there will be more competition for the seats at the UCs--including UC Riverside--and will result in an increase in the standards for selection. But generally if you achieve a GPA of 3.60 and a SAT score of 1600+ you will be accepted into UC Riverside.</p>

<p>My favorite aspects of UC Riverside are probably the level of the education, the readings and course work for the upper division courses are fairly demanding; the student to faculty ratios, some upper division courses will have only 10-30 students; and the lack of parties, therefore you will be able to concentrate more on academics rather than partying.</p>

<p>Well, as a pre-business student, my past three quarters have been pretty chill. I mean my classes aren't all that intense, so.. go figure. I'm not complaining though.. that's something I like about it so far. LOLOL. Not to say that classes at UCR are not demanding.. I just didn't take the particularly difficult ones just yet.. so I'm just enjoying my time for now..</p>

<p>The party scene varies from person to person. All I'm going to say is.. there are people that go to kickbacks a few times a week, and there are those that don't go at all.</p>

<p>It's your college experience. It will be what you make it to be.</p>

<p>YAY! haha i actually got into UCR and decided that it was the perfect match for me :)</p>

<p>I just slacked off for a while and thought the 3.0 that was true for UCB and UCSB was applicable to UCR, which i found out was not.</p>

<p>Did you guys dorm by any chance?</p>

<p>jenuwin01: There is a gap between the difficulty level of lower division and upper division courses. The work load in courses I took for the past three quarters were fairly intense; I had to read 9-12 scholarly articles/literary works, which constituted about 500-800 pages worth of reading per week, and those readings were extremely dense. Another factor that influences one's perspective on the intensity of the course is the grade that one desires to achieve. It would be more strenuous and intense if you wanted to achieve an A or A+ in a class than if you wanted to attain a C. Although there are parties in Riverside, it pales in comparison to the other UCs.</p>

<p>makingthemost: Despite the fact that I applied for dorms, the university assigned me to live at the University Village Towers (UVT); I assume it's probably because the dorms were completely occupied. After living at the UVT for a whole year I believe it is much better than living in the dorms since you get a larger living space, own bathroom, and more privacy at the UVT.</p>

<p>Yes, I figured that there would be huge difference between lower and upper div courses. I'm just saying that "I'm enjoying my first year for now".. lolol</p>

<p>Currently living in East Lo. I believe it's much more easier to meet people if you live in a traditional dorm.. Seriously, the sharing bathroom thing isn't all that bad. Don't worry too much about it, unless you live with seriously disgusting people.</p>

<p>is it sad that the whole bathroom thing was what i was worried about? xD. i really want east lo but it seems everyones asking for it so we'll see! :D</p>

<p>I'm just glad UCR's provisions of admissions were really simple and straightforward (thats why if elt something was missing) rather than hair pulling :D</p>

<p>what are your guys's majors?</p>

<p>'lack of parties'</p>

<p>They're always there if you know where to look for them</p>
