UC Application for out of state?

<p>So I know that they don't count out of state honors courses as honors but in the application, should I say that my honors classes are non-honors? it seems kinda unfair to me but whatever..</p>

<p>Here is the UC honors guidelines
University</a> of California - a-g Guide

All school designated honors is not honors. AP/IB courses are honors.
We are in state, and our school has a lot of honors classes that are not considered UC honors, so not weighted. Having said that, your transcript will still show you have challenged yourself and taken the most rigor classes available at high school.</p>

<p>that's good I guess. If i weigh my GPA without counting the honors I get a 4.17 but with the honors its a 4.5.. do you think i still have a chance of getting in berkeley? (i have a 30 act, 34 math, 760 physics subject test and 780 chem subject test, and a bunch of extracurriculars) im gonna apply anyway so i dont want a "wait and see" response :p i just wanna know what to expect</p>

<p>Will your parents pay $50K/year for you to attend UCB?</p>

<p>haha dont worry about it quite yet</p>

<p>It's a valid question right now. What's the point of spending time and money applying if in the end you won't be able to afford it? The UCs are looking for full pay OOS students to help their bottom line, they aren't giving any money to non-CA residents.</p>

<p>i understand your concern and its one of my options no matter how many other, better options i have.. but i just wanna know what my chances of acceptance are..</p>

<p>So you've got/are willing to spend the money, that's all Erin's Dad was asking.</p>

<p>Wow! I thought 4.4 was the highest uc capped GPA you could get! Maybe it's 4.5.
Anyway, good job!
I think the admit rate with a 4.4 was 50 percent to Cal and UCLA last year.

<p>"haha dont worry about it quite yet"</p>

<p>What are you talking about,? We have a budget crisis NOW! (smile)</p>

<p>i know the financial implications of a decision and i talked to my parents and all and they wouldnt be residents of another state by the time im in my second year (they're in a different country) so i just wanna see my chances of getting accepted.. put me back to earth</p>

<p>Glad to help. BTW, getting in state ridency is tough. For example, your parents residency doesn't affect yours if you are over 18. You pretty much have to have attended a California HS for a year, and graduated.</p>

<p>thanks so much for these links btw.. im just too stupid/lazy to look for them myself.. thanks again :)</p>

<p>these seems to be really hard.. honestly i dont think im going there anyway.. im in virginia so UVA seems like an extremely good choice for me right now.. hopefully i'll get in.. thanks for the help everyone!</p>

<p>Good choice. Wish MY kids could have gone!</p>

<p>Won't financial aid kick in for OOS students provided income qualifies? Or perhaps other scholarships? If someone is set on berkeley/ucla , I think they should still apply and then make a choice based on how their finances look. </p>

<p>Even if OP applies to private colleges, that still is 50K without financial aid. Yes, the thing is not to be set on some college and realise that finances will continue to be a factor.</p>

<p>Financial aid for OOS publics, at least in California, seems to be pretty unusual unless you qualify for the $5k or so pell grant, which you can get anywhere. Financial aid from privates seems not nearly as unusual.</p>

<p>@fall2016, the max aid an OOS student will get at UCB or UCLA is $11K as a freshman and 1/2 of that is loans.</p>

<p>FA will not kick in for qualifying OOS students at public universities anywhere but UVA and UNC-CH, these are the only two publics that treat IS & OOS students similarly for FA. People should not expect FA from OOS publics because they don't pay taxes to support those schools. </p>

<p>At least with a private you may have the chance for FA depending on their policies and your finances, but at the UCs, there is no possibility beyond the small amounts the above members have cited. That's why we have been asking the OP if they are willing/able to be full pay if accepted, because if the answer is no, there is no reason to apply.</p>
