CCC which one to chose?

Does it matter which CCC you go to. I live right by Canada college (no honors courses), but foothill college (honors program) is a little further, but still managable, but I've heard that they sent a lot of kids on to berkeley and ucla.

Does your CCC matter?

    An honors program is always a good hedge. How much further is it?
  • Student5477Student5477 - Posts: 22 New Member
    its about 15 minutes away while the other is literally next to my house.

    But the one near my house only grades with solid grades which is good; meanwhile, the further one grades with the +/- system.

    What would look better? 4.0 non honors or 3.7-8 with honors...specifically for Haas?

    Hm, difficult question. But since both would likely get into UCLA / UCB, I'd say the 4.0 non honors (as he would also get the regents invite).

    Just for clarification: CCC to UC transfer applicants are eligible to receive the Regent's Scholarship while UC to UC transfer applicants are not?

    if you're close to foothill, then you're not too far from de anza! i'd say go to foothill/ de anza. as mentioned foothill has the tap program. they're also on the quarter system which is nice for getting more courses in per year.

    I drive 20-50 minutes to go to De Anza/Foothill opposed to West Valley. I think it is worth it.

    Foothill and Ca
  • diamondprynzezdiamondprynzez Registered User Posts: 306 Member
    I drove for 50 minutes each way to go to de anza... and it was definitely worth it (ohlone was right near my house). Everyone who attended would tell you it's worth it. Especially if its only a 15 minute drive! And the +/- grading system doesn't really matter... according to a counselor, colleges recognize that grades are highly inflated at schools that don't weigh +/-

    Go to Foothill.

    Hmmm, I'm at a CCC to, and the pre-req for Applied Calculus I is only "intermediate algebera," (that's all I've taken and Im also going to take Applid Calc),so I'm assuming thats all you need to know.

    Just 85. Last quarter I had a class at 8 at foothill. Due to rush hour I had to leave at 7 to be there time. It seemed like most people I knew commuted as much or more than I did at DeAnza/Foothill.

    What's so great about De Anza? (Just for curiousity purposes)
  • colegePLEASEcolegePLEASE Registered User Posts: 433 Member
    oxypunk: Ya, I guess that's just living in california. I don't know, I just hate commuting. If it were up to me I wouldn't even have a car.

    diamondprynzez: I wouldn't go to Ohlone either. Still, I don't think there is much difference between DeAnza and Foothill.

    hey now, I went to ohlone and it's not bad. I'd say it's pretty good for a science major; the chem and especially physics were HARD, but I really enjoyed the classes and I was pushed to work hard. I had a good experience there.
