Hello, everybody first-time poster here, glad to be here!
I am stuck in a hard place, but I'm hoping you guys can grant me some clarity.
I am recent highschool graduate from NorCal committed to Portland state for the fall.
My dream school has ALWAYS been UC Berkeley, I even volunteered there and shadowed an intership there during highschool. I poured my heart into my app but was rejected, I am assuming because I accidentally labeled my APUSH course as a world his (so basically, the same class twice)), and "didnt meet the A-G reqs." Amongst other factors.
I quickly appealed and tried to convey my continued interest, I was elated when I was given WAITLIST status. However, I waited from may to july on the waitlist and was rejected due to class size. EVEN, if i was accepted, due to the housing crisis, I could not attend CAL because I was kicked out for being queer by my foster family last spring. On campus housing is a NEED for me bcus of my circumstances and my advisor said they could not have accomadated me anyways.
I wish I had the luxury of CCC but I do not, I am attending PSU due to the amazing housing, however I do not want to stay there. I wish I wasn't independent.
Do you think it's possible for me to complete 90-q credits ((junior level) and apply to cal as a transfer for next year? All I ever wanted was to go to CAL and I believe if I put my heart into it, I can get there. I'm trying to transfer asap.
Any and all advice welcome, sorry for the rant, I've had a heavy heart about this.
