    If you can fit 60 transferable units in one year, and fulfill a majority of your pre-reqs, then yes.

    Most however take two years before transfering to a UC.

    Don't give up hope! Not all decisions are out yet...so you still have some chances of getting in!

    It's either you received admission when you were in high school or you can fit 60 semester/90 quarter units in your schedule to be able to transfer after just one year.

    and how many credits are each classes?
    i'm planning to take summer school this year, the regular school year
    if not i'll just take one more summer school and see if i can graduate within a year and a half

    If you have APs, it counts towards your transferable units. Anyway, I suggest you take at least 6 semester units in the summer (it would be best if you can take 9). Depending on how many APs you took and what you got on it, you should take at least 18 during the spring. Well, I really can't tell you how many units to take each semester. But if you want to transfer in 1 year, you can't take "one more summer school" because you have to finish 60 units by SPRING.

    Btw, from personal experience, don't take classes just because they have more unit value than others. For example, Mechanics (Physics) is usually 5 semester units. However, you are required to attend 72 hours of lecture and 72 hours of lab. On the other hand, if you were to take two 3 unit classes, it would only be 108 hours together. So you do the math. You spend a lot less time at school if you take the two 3 unit class.

    Am I making sense?

    Jaesango: i'm on a quarter system

    but i take about 25 units each quarter [5 classes, 3 labs] i'm a bio major so its quite... tiring. haha. it's not as bad as everyone thinks.

    depending on your major, it could be a lot easier/harder.
