Hi there guys,
I will be applying to a few UC's and CSU's this fall (CS major). But i'm concerned about the 6 W's i have on my transcript.About 3-4 came during my first year in CC which was a horrible year as i fooled around without taking academics seriously and along with that i serious medical issues the second semester. My first year gpa was a
2.23 but over the past 1.5 year(s) i worked my way up to a 3.28 gpa (hopefully more by the end of this semester). And have a B average in my CS classes and Calc 1 class. 2 of these W's are mainly in general Ed classes the other 3 in chem which i think is not required for admission towards UCSC's CS program. I wanted to know how much will these affect my admission chances towards the colleges I'm applying to?Mainly UC santa cruz (but also csu LB, UC davis , csu northridge, UCR). How much does this really affect my transfer and Will me explaining my horrible first year and upward gpa trend help on my personal statement ?
