Transfer Stats to UCLA and some other Q's

What are the transfer stats for UCLA?

I also have a few more questions, if you could, please answer them to the fullest extent you can,. thanks tons!

- are SAT's and SAT II's required for UC transfer admission from a junior college? I'm a high school junior right now and I'll be taking them this may and June... should i try to score as high as possible, will UC"s be looking at these scores and evaluating them when i apply in a few years?

- I want to do pre-med and ultimately (duh) apply to med schools, will going to a JC first hurt me in med school admissions? Will the pre-med required classes be available to me at the junior college level?

- Finally, i've been taking classes like history, poli sci, psychology and TONS of PE and Dance (for PE credit at my school) at the same JC I'll be attending after I graduate since before my freshman year of HS. I got A's in poli sci, psych and history but I have a W in on PE class, a C in a karate class i took in 2002 and a most likely a D in a dance class this semester cuz i never show up. How badly will this affect my chances at transferring to Berkeley or any other UC? Will PE classes even matter. or will something like this tarnish my transcript all together?

Also, do you think those grades in such classes would hurt me in future med school admissions as well? Even if they were all taken during my high school years?

    I can answer your second question :)
    No, taking pre-reqs, GEs, etc at a JC will not affect you at all in med school admissions. simple answer haha
