UCSD Fall 2021 Transfer Thread

Waitlisted :frowning:
major: Chemical Engineering
GPA: 3.63
All pre-reqs finished.
essays: Good Essays
ec: From owning a small business, to community service, tutoring, etc

accepted: UCB (nuclear), Cal Poly SLO/Pomona (AeroE), CSULB (AeroE), CSUN (EE),
Waitlisted: SDSU(AeroE), UCSD (ChemE), UCI (AeroE)
Rejected: UCLA(AeroE), UCD(AeroE)

So I currently SIR’d to SLO but for location purposes, I would rather do UCSD. Do I have a good chance of coming off of the waitlist? I am also looking into medical school and I heard UC’s are much better than cal states for that.

All I’ll say is that there’s a math professor named Terence Tao at UCLA with a 230 IQ

where is our conditions of admissions form, do we have to keep all Cs?

It is under the forms section on your portal

Congrats! I got waitlisted to both slo and UCSD! Just out of curiosity, you also brought up slo earlier. Which school are you choosing?

I actually just declined today for SLO as its the last day to accept so hopefully you get my Software Engineering spot! I decided to commit to UCSD as I only have to do 3k out of pocket per year with the amount of aid I’m getting. Also might pursue grad school so a UC school will fit me best. Cal Poly SLO was going to be 17k out of pocket for me each year.

Best of luck with the waitlists!

I realized i should probably be more wordy for those who are applying for next fall and are looking for some hope. I was accepted as a PoliSci International Relations major in Warren College.

GPA: 3.0
IGETC: complete after this semester
Local: yes!
EC: No but I work part time
Personal insight essay questions: Very good, in my opinion. I think this is what got me in despite my low gpa and lack of extracurricular activities. I only had my mom proofread and she really liked them!

I wrote about my depression, daydreaming affecting my life, creative stories i used to write to cope with being bullied in school, my sibling dynamic and how that helped me become a leader in life, and why I took multiple gaps in my education & why my gpa doesn’t define me and how I will improve myself going forward. I think if you have a lower gpa, being honest about why you have it, why it doesn’t define you, and what you can bring to the table will up your chances. I moved around a lot so i have 2 other (besides the one i attend now) CC’s I went to and i had 3 classes I had to retake because I got D’s in those classes, lots of C’s on my transcript but my grades started to raise once i moved back to California and I spoke about that.

I was also accepted to SDSU. I hope this helps anyone who is reading this thread in hopes of getting in! I didn’t have faith in myself in being accepted so i’m over the moon I was! Everyone who applied/plans to apply should feel proud of themselves regardless
