    Hello guys
    I am a Sociology major, current GPA is a 3.4 hopefull it will be at a 3.6 by end of summer. I have seen different acceptance and rejections. Where high gpa's were denied but some with a low gpa were accepted! UCLA has a diversity where they pick a pool of random not just high stats.

    From CCC in NorCal
    Major: Poli Sci
    GPA: 3.8
    TAP: Yes and all honors classes completed
    IGETC: Still gotta do the sciences
    Pre-reqs: Ugh one class has not been made available to me yet
    EC: intern for Congressman, political editor for climate change magazine, and soon will be a statistics tutor

    Quick question for honors classes, does UCLA want me to take my honors classes for my major? How much do they care? Also, I got a B+ for one of my major classes, so how bad is this?
    Thank you!

    Major: Computer Engineering (newly opened 2017 spring)
    GPA: 3.6 (might go up after this summer)
    IGETC: Not necessary for Engineering
    TAP: Not available for School of Engineering

    Schools Applying: UCLA (officially visited), UCSD, UCSB

    Still have the second year to fix up any issues here. I can still make things better.

    AA-T Economics
    AA-T Sociology
    AA Interdisciplinary Studies: Social and Behavioral Sciences

    Volunteer/Community service:

    Volunteer at Daycare Programs

    Personal Statement:
    Working on it so I can't say for sure, but I will have them checked out by multiple faculty members from multiple departments at my school
    Wrote about how I didn't have an education for three years due to being trapped in Pakistan for losing my identification before adolescence
    Wrote about my significant health problems and disabilities that preventing me from performing well in high school and how I am dealing with them currently in college
    Wrote about how I've lost many family members during my time in high school and college that also prevented me from reaching my academic potential and the struggles my mother and I had to make when my father, in particular, died from an accident and the economic struggles that came with not having an income for the first 6 months.
    Wrote about how I would like to earn 6 degrees within two years of enrolling at a CCC to show a testament toward my willingness to continually learn every day and take advantage of every opportunity this country has to offer after witnessing people in Pakistan who would give their left foot to receive any education in general.

    EFC: 0

    California Resident, USA

    Asian American Male

    Income below $15,000

    First Generation Officially, not so much Unofficially (My father and mother both got their degrees from Pakistan but there is no evidence that they had an education at all, not even in their government profiles, perhaps I'll not consider myself as a first-generation student just to be safe
    Ethnic Minority

    Currently taking 15 units in the summer, 25 units in the fall, and 24 units in the spring while dealing with kidney problems, type 1 diabetes, Heart dysrhythmia, blood pressure issues, thyroid issues, and cholesterol issues at the age of 19. Also handling all this with running a business in which I need to travel 5 hours total front and back with my mother to Fremont to host exhibitions

    Received 3 B's in prerequisites required for my major at UCLA, which are Macro and Microeconomics and Financial Accounting. I want to explain my situation in spring 2018 why I received a B in Micro and Financial Accounting and tell them that my mother had heart problems and my doctor recently revealed I was at risk for undergoing kidney dialysis so I needed to focus more on my health, more so than my education.
    I would like to be in more clubs and programs and interact more with the community. I will be in PTK and a business club in the fall so I don't know how much that will affect my application. I've primarily been focused on my business and my education.

    Major: Electrical Engineering
    CCC Transfer
    Major GPA: 3.75 (3.78 after TAU if I ace fall 2018 courses)
    IGETC: Not required for engineering
    TAP: No
    Pre-reqs: Will be done by spring 2019 (Phys 3 and Diff Eq)
    ECs: Basically nothing lol
    Applying to: UCLA (top choice), UCSB (2nd choice), UCB, UCSD, UCI, UCD

    UCLA is my dream school but very unlikely with a 3.78 GPA and still having to take 2 pre-reqs in the spring. Berkeley is out of the question. All strongly recommended courses for UCSB will be completed by spring so I'm hoping they will take me.

    can improve faster than most when mind is in the right spot, and mental problems I am not allowed to know about.

    Not sure I’d say I’m faster than others. Also, mental issues. Not sure what that means but sometimes better to highlight strengths in essays and add the mental part in the additional comments at the end of the essays. There’s a part to add anything else. That’s my feeling anyway.

    If you see my stats i posted previously and change the gpa from 3.76 to 3.85 what do you guys think my chances are?

    Here's my stats, if you could chance me that would be great :)

    Major: Sociology

    CCC Transfer from Palomar College

    GPA: Currently at a 3.92, by the time I transfer I expect it to be around a 3.95

    IGETC: Will be done by the end of fall semester

    TAP: No

    SAT Score: 1320 (I don't know if they even ask for that)

    Pre-Requisites for Major: Already completed

    EC'S: Work 20 hours a week for an IT company, Volunteer at a middle school tutoring sheltered English students, In the Active Minds Club.

    Personal Statements: For leadership I talked about how I convinced my parents to adopt one of my teammates because he was getting beaten and neglected by his parents. I talked about my sports background and how hard it was to step away from Football because it was such a significant portion of my life. (For context I had been playing since I was 4 and almost every waking moment of my life went towards playing it, studying it, training with big name coaches across the country, going to camp after camp after camp, etc.) And I'm working on the other two personal Statements right now.

    Applying to: UCB (Top Choice), UCLA (2nd Choice), UCSB (TAG), UCSC, Cornell, NYU, and USC.

    On kind of a side note, I keep getting emails to join Phi-Theta Kappa since I'm on the deans list, do you think it would be worth joining or am I doing enough stuff as it is?

    IGETC: Will be completed after Fall semester
    TAP: No, since I transferred from UCSB it was too late for me to join a program.
