UCSB Rejects?

<p>It seems like UCSB did not admit many transfer students, a total of 1,400 out of 8,500. I was wondering isn't the TAA with California Community Colleges guaranteed if one's GPA is over a 2.8, i mean thats what UCSB counselers as well as my college counselers said. BUt i guess not, as i was rejected this morning as a Business Economics with an Emphasis on Accounting Major.</p>

<p>sorry to hear, but I believe they plan to ENROLL 1,400 students, not admit.</p>

<p>UCSB received 8,500 transfer applications for an entering class of 1,400 new transfer students.</p>

<p>dangdang142: what you are talking about is enrolled...that is people who filled the SIR....they accepted way more...</p>

<p>Yes, the TAA is guaranteed if you have a GPA over 2.8 for the College of Letters and Science, which I assume that's the school you are referring to. Did they give you any reasons as to why they rejected you? And also, yes, they have limited space for a 1400 enrollment. </p>

<p>Definitely appeal it. I received my acceptance letter on April 2nd, a week before it reflected that I was admitted on the admission decisions webpage.</p>

<p>I don't understand where you guys are getting the limited space of 1400 from...</p>

<p>according to this from UCSB in the 2004-2005 year:</p>

<p>Applied: 8398
Admitted: 5624
Enrolled: 1552</p>

<p>Admission is guaranteed provided:</p>

<p>1) You have a 2.8
2) Took the 7 minimum required general education as listed on UCSB's transfer page
3) Have 60 units completed in the spring prior to transfer</p>

<p>ill have 59 units done by the end of spring i was told that ucsb was one of the few uc schools that allow 60 units by the end of summer, because i know that ucdavis does not permit summer</p>

<p>I thought it was the opposite</p>

<p>Unfortunatly, that's incorrect info. See page 2 of this chart:</p>

<p><a href="http://www.ucop.edu/sas/ets/ReferenceMat/Matrix03_04.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.ucop.edu/sas/ets/ReferenceMat/Matrix03_04.pdf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Davis, Irvine, and Riverside permit summer to be counted, all others do not. Also, I know Davis forfeits your guaranteed transfer if you need to take classes in the summer to reach 60 units (you'll be put in the regular applicant pool). I assume it's similar in the other two schools.</p>

<p>wow, just one unit shy? I'm sorry to hear that......</p>

<p>was anybody who had completed all the requirements, rejected to UCSB?</p>

<p>My best friend was rejected and completed all of the requirements.
Poli Sci major.</p>

<p>She had a 3.0 GPA. She got accepted to UCR, but doesn't want to go there. She says that she'd rather leave college after she finishes at the CCC than go to UCR.</p>

<p>aviva_dawn: your friend is stupid...no offense</p>

<p>You read my mind, fei. I think that she shouldn't give up so quickly.....</p>

<p>Alas, it's her opinion.</p>

<p>was anybody who had completed all the requirements, rejected to UCSB?</p>

<p>Not that I'm aware of. It is a guaranteed transfer after all. All the people on this board who were rejected turned out to not meet a requirement (and it's really unfortunate too, since usually it's such a small problem).</p>

<p>I could be wrong, but I'd bet aviva_dawn's friend also had a defficiency in one of the conditions.</p>

<p>sounds very weird how all this works... i think they do everything randomly.......
i missed two courses and still got in, with a 3.1
i did the reqs for davis...</p>

<p>For most majors, there is no course requirement. I had 2 out of 5 course completed, but I was never worried about admissions because I triple checked that I had met all of the requirements as stated on the UCSB contract on assist.org.</p>
