UCI Fall 2019 Transfer Thread

It's that time of year again. I didn't see a thread for Fall 2019, so I decided to make one! Feel free to post your stats and other questions/concerns.

MAJOR: Biomedical/Chemical Engineering
MAJOR PRE-REQUISITES: done by Spring 2019
IGETC: No (partially complete)
TAG: Yes
UC GPA: 3.56
ALSO APPLYING TO: Cal Poly Pomona, UCSB, UCLA, UCSD
EC: member of STEM Academy, member of Associated Student Government, part-time page at city library
OTHER: took AP classes in high school

While I'm at it, can someone chance me? UCI is my top school and I was devastated I didn't get in my senior year (I was waitlisted). I got into CPP and UCR my senior year (if that helps).

Best of luck to everyone applying this year! :D

    MAJOR: Business Econ
    MAJOR PRE-REQUISITES: done by Spring 2019
    IGETC: done by Fall 2018
    TAG: No
    UC GPA: 3.36
    ALSO APPLYING TO: UCSB, UCD
    EC: Worked for an insurance agent and I was also licensed. Currently, I work at a car rental company and I've been there for nearly two years.

    Pretty bummed that I'm ineligible for TAG, especially since my GPA will definitely be over a 3.4 after the Fall term.

    Hi guys! I transferred to UCI via fall 2018 Application round. If you need any advice or help throughout this process, I'd be glad to be there for you! I know how stressful this time of your life can be, and honestly without these types of forums-I don't think I would've dealt well with it. Good luck y'all! :D

    Hey guys! My top choice is UCI considering I moved from the midwest to California (specifically Irvine) a few years ago. Third year at my community college right now and I'm applying this fall

    MAJOR: (originally it was Biology) Public Health Policy

    ALSO APPLYING TO: All the UC's if my credits don't exceed a junior transfer but if I have to apply as a senior, then it'll probably be the campuses that only accept senior transfers. Also applying to Pomona College, USC (considering), CSULB, CSUF, and some possible out of state privates but that's all under consideration
    EC:
    - Won the Director's Award in Best Musicianship, Cellist for around 11-12 years now, Participated in a Cello ensemble as well as orchestra. Been a bit out of practice hoping to join an orchestra after transfer and incorporate it into my career.

    I'm applying to UCI as a transfer student for CS (no Tag). I see on their website that at least a B is required in all major pre req courses. I received a C in Calc 1, will automatically cut me out of even being considered? Thanks guys.
