    Here's a tip:
    Most incoming freshmen when they are admitted attempt to have their 4 year plan laid out in terms of majoring in what discipline, and whether to two major or minor in something else. You really have no idea what you are able to accomplish/handle until you come and experience the academics yourself.

    Yeah unlimit is right, just go with the flow big dog. You can probably double major in a hard subject and then a joke one like history what im trying to do. But ull find out how much u can handle, its doesnt matter u dont have to declare a major for a year and a half. Too many kids come in here with there mindset on what they dream of being like a lawyer or doctor, then take a a year of those classes and realize they dont like it, take some easy GE's and see what floats ur boat. Dont worry about grades they are fairly easy if u pick the right teachers, go to bruinwalk.com to check teacher ratings then ull find the joke teachers who give out A's like candy. I currently enrolled in two classes filled with bball players, I study about an hour a week its an absolute joke. You can double major if u balance ur load

    I love it how 30% of people at my orientation planned to double-major in either Business Economics and Political Science or Computer Science and Japanese, and then vanish into a puff of thin air once the quarter starts... and the following year I bump into them on campus and find out that they failed to make the GPA cut-off for Business Economics or simply got weeded out of Computer Science. :rolleyes:

    yeah, i'm just sticking with bio.

    what's the GPA cut-off for Business Economics?
  • sazagbruinsazagbruin Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
    3.3 overall and 3.5 in two classes econ 11 and 101 i think
  • dyip10dyip10 Registered User Posts: 532 Member
    Actually that's for transfer students. There is no GPA cut off and a 3.5 in econ 11 and 101 is not necessary. The primary score requirement is a 3.3

    Assuming your pre-major GPA and overall UC GPA is the same, the GPA is a 3.3.

    A "joke major..." Dude, you can't even construct a proper English sentence, and you're willing to declare history a joke?

    :rolleyes:

    LOL history is NOT A JOKE MAJOR. I am history major and the reading is overwhelming... and don't get me started with the midterms and papers...
  • flopsyflopsy Registered User Posts: 8,368 Senior Member
    Don't History majors have a higher-than-average GPA to compensate? :rolleyes:
  • rExRuN467rExRuN467 Registered User Posts: 1,215 Senior Member
    ^ LOl maybe true but I am a lazy bum so I wouldn't know the true difficulty or simplicity of a major.. LOl.. any course is difficult for me because it takes a lot just to get me crack open the book
  • UCLAriUCLAri Registered User Posts: 14,740 Senior Member
    flopsy,

    MAYBE, but I gotta say, the only class I took at UCLA that even remotely approached "insanely difficult" for me was a history class. Not the econ, methodology, or even language or science classes, but the damn HISTORY class I took.

    Damn you Philip!
