Transferring to Berkeley with a C?

vvtd770vvtd770 4 replies11 threads Junior Member
Hi everyone, I'm a CCC student who just sent in apps for Berkeley's Cognitive Science Major.

I recently just got my Fall quarter grades back and I got a C in my conceptual physics class. I only have 2 other trouble grades which are 2 B's but I have A's in everything else. How is this going to affect my chances now?

Here are some of my other stats for reference:

Cum. GPA: 3.72
Pre-Req's: Completed by Spring 2020
IGETC: Completed

Leadership roles in clubs in high school
Intern at an on-campus resource center for LGBTQ+ students
Intern for Poet Laureate of my county (Website development and Outreach)

I took conceptual physics to satisfy UCLA's pre-reqs but it was not a prereq for Berkeley. My other 2 B's were in pre-requisite math courses needed to take the Calculus series. I'm really worried because I was doing so well and recently my grades have been trending downwards. Of course, I know that admissions are somewhat dependent on your luck, but I would like a realistic look of my chances. Thank you!
