Transferring from CO to CA

<p>First of all I'd like to thank you all for taking the time to read my first post!
I have completed 19 credits with a 4.0 at my CC in Colorado but my goal is acceptance in UC Berkeley or maybe even some of the ivy league schools. However, I don't even know where to start. My case is very unusual and I have trouble getting help with even my counselers. All I've been told is that I would have to call all the colleges I am interested in and check if my credits transfer or not because, more than likely, some of them wont transfer. So if they dont transfer do I have to quit altogether right there then? I have so many questions but feel like I should have some feedback first.
Thank you so much again for your time.</p>

<p>It's likely some of your credits won't transfer. That happens even to California CC transfers, and it means you have to retake those courses at the UC. So, yes, contact the admissions office staff directly with your questions. That's what they're there for.</p>
