Help Me Transfer to UC Berkeley from Out-of-State!!! Any Advice Appreciated!
So I've just been rejected from UC Berkeley for the class of 2024 undergrad. It's a bummer, but UC Berkeley has always been my dream school, and I'm not ready to give up so soon. I am very comfortable with the idea of transferring for in for my junior year, and I am already aware from previous threads that it's really hard to do that when you're an out-of-state student like me who will be attending a four year institution and not a community college. However, I have 2 full years to plan and transfer, so any advice at all about what I can do to boost my chances in these next few years and plan to the best of my abilities would be extremely appreciated! I know you have to make a really good case about why you'd like to transfer, and I hope to use my interest in Native American Studies to do that (I'd like to be a lawyer who works on reservations someday) and I'm planning on applying as a polo-sci major. Please donate some wisdom to a girl who wants to be a cal bear!!!!30 replies
