There’s obviously no way to know for sure but you seem like a really strong candidate for both schools! My community college said TAP certified applicants have an 80% acceptance rate at UCLA, also this website is helpful to see the GPAs of students who got in for each major:


That’s so cool!! Your gpa is rlly good and within the range for your major ( I just checked the transfer profile today lol) !

Is it dumb that I’m stressing out over a B I might have gotten in a c++ class? Applying as a statistics major and it would move my GPA from 4.00 → 3.95. I’m just pissed because I had a really solid A throughout the entire class, then I get really sick the day of the final and made careless errors such as forgetting to come back to a 10-point question that I skipped. I feel like it won’t matter in the end, but idk

Hey, I’m also a fellow stats major! Tbh I don’t think it will matter a whole lot. You are still between the 25th and 75th percentile gpa-wise for Statistics (2021 transfer statistics for UCLA just got released: Transfer Profile by Major | UCLA Undergraduate Admission).

Hello fellow cog sci friend!
What are your plans career wise with your major?

Med School? What about you?

I personally want to work in the tech space industry (Google, Apple, etc.) I really like how cog sci touches on AI, machine learning, etc.
