Is it possible to get into a UC (UCSD, UCI, UCLA, Berkeley specifically) from ASU?
I have been wondering what to expect when I apply. My major is mass communication/media studies. For reference, my high school GPA was 4.0 and I was a varsity athlete with AP classes etc. until junior year when I had housing insecurity issues and was basically homeless and my grades were not impressive. I went to a CC and had a year of very bad grades (like a 1.8 GPA) until I got a second job and an apartment (which meant the end of the housing insecurity, it lasted like three years) and got into ASU online through Starbucks. I have a 3.8 GPA now while also working almost full time. I have a bunch of recent community service and sports/awards/extra curriculars from high school. What do you think the chances are of them taking my situation into consideration AND accepting someone from ASU instead of a CC? Sorry if this is not the right place to ask4 replies
