Wondering about CC to UC or Ivy

<p>I'm a junior in HS right now and I plan to do CC to UC as I want to save money and feel that I'm not good enough for certain UCs. I have a few questions about doing this process though.</p>

<ol>
<li>Is it possible to go from CC to an Ivy?</li>
<li>Do the universities you plan to transfer to look at your high school SAT, GPA, Ecs, APs or Honors? (My SAT is 1670, which is sort of low and my GPA unweighted is 3.7.)</li>
<li>How much high of a GPA do you need in CC when transferring to a university?</li>
<li>You take CC for 2 years and then do you take a university for 2 or 4 years?</li>
<li>Do you take the classes you want to major in at the CC?</li>
</ol>

<ol>
<li>Yes, but your grades must be at the top of the scale and you will have to show the same amount of extracurricular activities as a Freshman applicant.</li>
<li>If you get a CC Associate's degree, they aren't going to look at your HS grades much, but you still may have to show SATs</li>
<li>It depends on the university. If an Ivy, it better be above 3.8, preferably above 3.9 . Again, for the UCs, it depends on which one. For Berkeley, again you better be at least above 3.8 . For others, at least in the mid 3s.</li>
<li>If you are careful and take all of the courses that a Freshman and Sophomore would take at your desired transfer school, then you may be able to graduate from a university in 2 years. Many students take 2.5 or 3 years.</li>
<li>See #4. It is generally best to take all of the general education requirements for the university you want to transfer to and only a small number of the courses in your intended major. That way, you can concentrate on your major requirements after you transfer. You will end up doing something like this anyway in order to meet the requirement for an Associate's degree.</li>

<li>Yes my cousin went from a CC to UCB.</li>
<li>No</li>
<li>Higher the better. My cousin had 4.0, but he applied for constructional engineering</li>
<li>2 years</li>
<li>Take the general requirements for the university you want to transfer to. Saves a lot of time and money in the long run.</li>
