I've been at CC for 3 years and I'm in no rush to transfer. I want to raise my GPA (currently 3.38) so staying an extra year would be okay with me. Staying an extra year would allow me to get my AS-T, finish my transfer pathway (computer science), and I would complete all my under-division/required courses for my major without paying thousands. I'd also be at home with my parents, boyfriend, and friends. I want to get out of CC already but I don't know if my GPA is up to par with some of the schools I'm applying to... I don't care about school rankings so much, I just hope I can get into UCI so I can stay near my loved ones.
(Also the reason why my GPA is so low right now is because for the first couple years I was battling depression/mania due to circumstances that have happened to me. I didn't get professional treatment until last year and have been getting mostly A's/couple B's ever since.)
