Hello, I am a confused and lost soul. If you could give me advice, I'd appreciate it! Here's my situation..
I graduated high school and was accepted into Cal Poly Pomona and UCR. I decided to go to CPP because I had a death in the family and needed to be close to home. I'm finishing up my first year at CPP this Spring quarter.
I want to transfer to UCLA, UCI, or UC Davis. However, as a high school student, I was denied admission to all the schools (except Davis in which I did not apply at the time). I filed an application for Fall 2008 to UC Irvine as a lower division transfer, but I was denied admission again probably due to not enough units for my major.
I am now trying to figure if I should continue to be at CPP. I don't like CPP because none of the majors really interest me. I am a biology major here. I am thinking of starting at a community college like Mt. SAC in the Fall 2008 and enter in the honors program and TAG program. If I do take this route, I think I would stick with major of psychology or something similar to that extent. Is this a good idea or should I stick it out at CPP?
I would like to transfer by Fall 2009 which gives me one full year to fulfill my major requirements if I decide to go to community college. I am almost complete with my general education courses. What kinds of majors do you think I can look at that takes one year? [sounds kind of desperate, but i'm just wondering..]
I also heard that if you take an less impacted major at these community colleges like humanities or english or political science, it's easier to transfer. Is this true?
I'm dying to hear opinions and advice. Thank you in advance to all those that reply!!
