I’m a CC student hoping to transfer to UCLA Communication. I only have 5 out of the 7 required major prep courses completed. Obviously, it would’ve been ideal for me to have completed all 7 major prep courses by the fall prior to admission, but that ship has sailed. The remaining 2 major prep courses are not offered in my CC district, so I would have to take them online, at a completely different community college, next spring, my last semester of CC prior to transfer.
Which would improve my chances of being admitted into UCLA Comm:
Complete remaining 2 major prep courses (thus completing all major prep), yet risk lowering my 4.0 G.P.A (because I’d be taking the 2 courses at a completely unfamiliar CC where I wouldn’t know the processes + they’re taught by hard professors + I would have an heavier class load in my last semester prior to transfer)?
Or should I not take the 2 remaining major prep classes and maintain my 4.0?
