What kind of grades do you need as a transfer to get into Cal?

<p>My friend needs to know and she's too lazy to make an account here.</p>

<p>She's worried because her dream school is Cal. She has some great extracurriculars, like swimming, as well as some other stuff. But what she wants to know most is the usual breakoff point between an accepted transfer and a rejected one.</p>

<p>If you know anything about this subject, please do tell.</p>

<p>Thanks in advance</p>

<p>4.00 or bust.</p>

<p>Some people got in on this website with a 3.3, others were rejected with a 3.9... clearly there is no "minimum GPA requirement" because there are many variables to consider.</p>

<p>She should just take her GPA and compare it to Berkeley's average admit GPA. I think I read that the 25-75% admitted GPAs were 3.75-3.8. For an easy major, a 3.5 might be good enough. Competitive majors may require a 3.8+.</p>

<p>Be passionate in what you're doing, show that you stand out somehow. I had a 3.62 (B- in a pre-req!!) and got in as a sociology major (top 10 major), but I talked about how my work experience and personal experiences really relate to my interest in sociology. </p>

<p>Yes, they really do read your personal statements at LA & Berkeley :)
good luck, try hard, be well-rounded and show passion for your major.</p>
