Can ya'll help a confused Texan girl out?
Long story short, My entire family is moving to California (about an hour or so from Los angeles) in January. I already know I can't get into UCLA as a freshman, So my question is will doing to community college route be a good plan for me?
I plan on working full-time my first year in California then enrolling myself in a nearby community college where I can hopefully transfer within 2 years. So i'd be living in California for 3 years before even applying to UCLA.
I saw some discussions here that alot of kids who move here are still considered out of state even after doing their first two years in a California CC, will it be the same for me since I moved with everyone in my family? Will I be considered out of state still and pay out of state tuition.
Is there anymore I can do and prepare for that will give me a shot at UCLA?
I'd appreciate any helpful advice! thank you!
