    With that GPA and a solid application, you should have no trouble transferring to a school like Davis unless you miss some pre-reqs. Be sure you have the right classes under your belt. The Tag framework should be the perfect guide.

    Frankly, you are a good candidate for LA too.

    Nonetheless, it boggles my mind why you wouldn't take the classes needed to be TAG eligible.

    Good luck.

    my gpa meets 3.20 by summer 2015, but I don't know if I can be accepted by uc tag davis?

    @Goldpig I think you will be fine as 3.2 is the minimum for the college of letters and science and you have met that requirement before the application opened. Hopefully we both get it! :)

    I didn't notice one. My guess is that it will be made closer to when acceptances are sent out.

    Guys! I need help.

    I took a Communication class at CSU Fresno, now I'm at a CC. That Communication class is transferable to the CC that I'm at and that same Communication class at the CC is also transferable to Davis. Is it safe to assume that the class I took is transferable to Davis as well?

    @HmongNotMong101 I'd assume so. The UCD rep at my school saw I spent a year at a CSU, where I did things like Comm/English and she thought I'd be fine.

    Also she said they're trying to get TAG decisions out before 11/15.

    Edit: Shouldn't this be moved to the UC Transfer sub-forum?
