<p>Would it matter if I did not complete my prerequisites because the community college I currently attend does not offer it?</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>yeah its the prereqs sorry :( I got rejected too with a 3.933</p>

<p>oh wow, such a high stat.</p>

<p>they don't want people who will have to spend 3 years at their college instead of two. They want the greatest number of students possible with the least strain on their system as that tends to increase the number of nobel laureats/$ spent.</p>

<p>that said, external, consider also applying to standford, Caltech and berkeley, you seem solid.</p>

<p>did they send you an email when your decisions were up?</p>

<p>I was just rejected too guys. I'm hurting pretty bad right now :(. Oh well. On to UCB....hopefully this will work out.</p>

<p>^
Emil?!?!? Really?!?!?! OMG ):!!! It was Psychology tho...and you know how that is! I'm sure you have a great shot at Berkeley, don't worry!</p>

<p>No, they did not send me an e-mail. Good luck to those who applied!</p>

<p>As for my prerequisites, I was unable to take them at other colleges. Considering that this is my last semester at my current community college, I would try to take some prerequisites over summer.</p>

<p>awww Nicky i am so sorry :(</p>

<p>It's ok. I'm just going to go back to my speech class now :(. I bolted down here too. lol I went all the way across campus to the computer lab. Oh well. Jane, how about you?</p>

<p>@emilsinclair</p>

<p>nooooooo! :( i'm so sorry to hear that!!!!!</p>

<p>i am pending :/</p>

<p>aww Nicky ♥ Cal ftw!!!!!</p>

<p>@ Andj: It's ok. Thank you for the support! I'm just praying for Berkeley. I applied for philosophy there. What terrifies me....is if I don't get in....I'm probably going to stay at my CCC another year.</p>

<p>Do you guys think I should appeal?</p>

<p>I got rejected tooooooooooooooo</p>

<p>I wasn't expecting much.....</p>

<p>but it is queit disappointing</p>

<p>@ emil isn't phil at cal much easier to get into than psych at la?</p>

<p>dude, it doesn't hurt to appeal does it? You worked too hard not to. Do it.</p>

<p>and yes, philosophy is one of the easier majors to get into.</p>

<p>What would the basis of your appeal be?</p>

<p>If you typed this out already, I apologize, I didn't get a chance to see it, the forums have been blowing up.</p>

<p>I also applied to Berkeley and Stanford. Considering that I did not complete my prerequisites for Berkeley because it was not offered at the community college I currently attend, would it impact me?</p>

<p>i would be curious to know the basis of your appeal too...</p>

<p>Rejected for business econ. Not really sad about this because I didn't really want to go to socal, but my first rejection :(. Maybe I should have applied for regular econ after all, haha.</p>
