<p>".... UC's do accept people under a 3.0. They are suppose to stop during the Fall of 2012..."</p>
<p>Can you link to more info about that? I know UC's will no longer require subject tests after 2011, but I hadn't heard anything about changes in minimum UC GPA's.</p>
<p>This is what is said to be new for 2012</p>
<p>"Differences from current policy</p>
<p>The new policy requires the same number of "a-g" courses and the same GPA as current policy. What is different is:</p>
<pre><code>* Two SAT Subject Tests will no longer be required for admission. However, students can still choose to submit their scores for consideration as part of their application, just as they do now with AP scores. The Subject Tests also may be recommended for certain majors.
* All applicants will need to complete 11 of the 15 "a-g" courses by the end of their junior year. Currently, this is required only of students who are designated eligible by ranking in the top 4% of their high school class.
* The share of students who are guaranteed admission based on their rank in their own high school class will grow (9% vs. the current 4%).
* Fewer students overall will receive an admission guarantee (10% of high school graduates statewide vs. 12.5% now), but nearly all students who would have received this guarantee under current policy will still be entitled to a full review by their campuses of choice under the new proposal."
<p>"Under the new policy, all California high school seniors who…</p>
<pre><code>* complete the 15 UC-required college-preparatory ("a-g") courses, with 11 of those done by the end of 11th grade,
* maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better (weighted by honors/AP bonus points) in these courses, and
* take the ACT with Writing or SAT Reasoning Test
<p>…will be invited to apply and will be entitled to a comprehensive review of their applications at each UC campus to which they apply.</p>
<p>Within this "entitled to review" pool, two categories of applicants will be guaranteed admission somewhere within the UC system:</p>
<pre><code>* those who fall in the top 9% of all high school graduates statewide, and
* those who rank in the top 9% of their own high school graduating class."
<p>I suppose ELC ( top 3 percent in school at end of 11th grade) might now allow for a less them 3.0 UC GPA,but not starting 2010</p>
<p>Is that your UC GPA?</p>
<p>Also, not in your service area, but consider CSU Monterey Bay and Sonoma State.</p>
