Can you apply to different UC's with different majors?
I was wondering if you can apply to different majors for the UC colleges. I currently a high school junior (class of 2021). My end of my junior year GPA is expected to be 3.89 (unweighted) and 4.165 (weighted). I want to major in civil engineering but realized that my GPA is lower than the average. The recent news of the coronavirus spreading and UC's temporarily suspending the SAT, makes my chances of getting accepted lower. My idea was to apply as a sociology major for UC Davis (my dream school), apply as civil engineering for Berkeley, Irvine, and UCLA (also structural engineering for UCSD). I also plan to write my college essays about my passion for engineering (and maybe relate to scology). I would like to know if I can apply different majors when applying to the UC's. If so, what is the best way to do so?5 replies
