    As someone who goes to Davis, you should be fine. I've met tons of transfers here sub 3.2, and Econ isn't as impacted a major here as Man Econ.

    I called the campus a while back, and he said that it wouldn't be hard to change majors. I applied with a TAG for Econ at the last minute, before I saw Man. Econ. Would it be hard to change from Econ to Man. Econ? I'll post my stats:

    West Valley College Transfer
    Major: Economics
    GPA: 4.0
    TAG: UCD - Economics
    IGETC: Will be done in Spring 2017

    Major Prereqs: For Econ - Will be done w/ Calc II in Spring 2017, but didn't take Linear Algebra or Multi-Variable Calculus. Otherwise, mostly done.
    For Man. Econ - Mostly done, but haven't taken any comp. sci courses and will be done with Calc II in Sp. 17. Also, I'm taking Business Law right now, but it doesn't show as an equivalent to UCD.

    ECs: Movie Reviews on YouTube. HS volunteering, not a lot - NHS Tutor and Leo's Club.

    Essays: I think they're decent. I had a former HS teacher and my cousin who has an MBA look at them. He had a similar process in getting into St. Mary's MBA, and he wrote a lengthy email to me w/ feedback. I was quite surprised on how much input and time he put into it.

    Other Schools applied: UCB, UCI, SJSU, Cal Poly SLO.

    EDIT: Also, I just activated my UCD account today because it slipped under the email radar. Did I miss anything deadline-wise from Dec. to now? I did do the Transfer Academic Update.

    GPA: 3.6
    IGETC: done
    TAG: UCD
    Does anyone know if TAG applicants get priority? I think I recall it saying that they get notified earlier but is it true and if so, does it mean we will know before mid march? (assuming they start sending it out mid march to april.

    @Sekime: Transfer decisions last year were posted on April 22 so a month after Freshman decisions. I believe all transfer applicants hear on the same day regardless if you TAG'd or not.
  • KK456KK456 Registered User Posts: 88 Junior Member
    @Sekime My TAG for DAVIS was approved in October so you definitely should have heard back by now, try checking your TAP account online it should tell you if it was approved or not

    @Gumbymom Thank you for the response!I didn't know if they would release earlier for the TAGS or not but now knowing I'll just chill till April then :D
    @KK456 I was referring to if they were going to give TAG students priority when giving out acceptances, sorry I wasn't clear on that :)
