I know it's a little early, but I thought I'd find other UCSB prospectives to share stats and give each other hope.

Major: Undecided, but switching between a lot. Currently applying as geography BA with religious studies alt. Will likely double.

GPA: 3.79 CCC courses. 3.66 once my previous UC courses are counted.

ECs: None, really. I struggled to find a job when I moved back home from my UC. Worked as a sign spinner on the weekends now I tutor middle school students.

My IGETC should be done by the end of fall 2019, so I plan to spend spring 2019 knocking out some geography lower divs.

Applying for TAG. Let's get it.

    Hi everyone!!

    UCSB is one of my top choices:)

    California Community College Student

    Major: Either Poli Sci or Comm

    GPA: 3.84
    Major GPA (for both): 4.0

    IGETC: Done except for Math (will take in Spring 2020)
    Major Prep: Done

    Currently have 46 transferable units completed, 15 in progress for Fall 2019, and about 10-15 planned for Spring 2020

    Full-time job
    Political Internship during my first year of CC
    UCB TAP member
    Deans List multiple times

    Insight questions: I believe they are strong; I cover an array of topics/challenges I have overcome.

    As of now, I think that my biggest downfall is that I will not have my Math class completed when my application is evaluated.

    Other UCs I'm applying to are UCLA, UCB, and UCSD

    Major: neuroscience at first but changed to chemistry.

    I failed my bio class during second quarter but I retook it during third quarter and got an A which replaced the GPA. I’m not sure if that will hurt my chances..

    Hey everyone! Currently, I am a bit anxious in applying for schools. To put it shortly, I attended Northern Arizona University fresh out of high school as a 17-year old. I was thinking of writing about that in the PI question regarding an educational barrier I overcame because I was young and only wanted to get out of the house coming from impulsive teenager. Basically, I was going to touch on the maturity aspect as I was able to mature and grow being away from home at such a young age. I realized at NAU I did not know exactly what I wanted to do, so I came back home and attend CCC to reassess on my plan. Fastforward, to my second year of community college, I now know that I want to pursue com as my major! Also, I had an internship for a fashion PR showroom in the summer of 2018. I am now going on 20-years old and have matured quite a bit since my first year at university.

    Right now, my stats are:
    Major: Communications Studies
    GPA: 3.87 (only one B)
    TAP: no (missed the deadline, is this a big deal not having it?)
    Honors: Will be completed by Spring 2020
    IGETC: Will be completed by Spring 2020
    Major prep: Will be completed by Spring 2020
    ECs: I work at Home Depot, Honors Program (perhaps I should join a club?)
