<p>i'm currently a student in community college, majoring in mechanical engineering. i will submit my transfer application to UC in the coming november. I want to do some volunteering work now. Is that obvious to the admission officers that i just want my application look good?</p>
<p>Since my major is engineering, my counselor told me that admission for engineering major is primarily based on the completeness of the lower division preparation, GPA, and the essay. She said i am a strong candidate for my strong acadamic performance(4.0 GPA, completed all the required class in one year). So should i do some volunteering work?
btw, my goal is uc berkeley.</p>
