UCSD Admissions Rescinded
I am a transfer student and I just got my UCSD admission rescinded because I didn’t finish my second UC English class which was Philosophy-130 (Critical Thinking). However, I took the class at another community college within the same school district that had the exact same course designation, title and syllabus. I only just found out that the class that I completed did not count for the English prerequisite. I completed all other transfer requirements, I have an overall 3.7 GPA and I have not failed any classes. I have an almost perfect TOEFL score and got an A for “A” Level English (international student). I have already submitted my appeal letter detailing my situation but I just want to know if anyone out there has any thoughts on my current predicament. I’m getting very mixed responses from the UCSD admissions office as to whether or not I can submit supplementary documents to help my situation. This is extremely terrible for me because I already transferred all my immigration documents from my previous community college and I don’t think I’ll be able to attend classes anywhere else this fall as they told me so late and most colleges fall semester start in a week or so. If anybody has any suggestions please do let me know. It would be absolutely terrible if I were not able to attend UCSD due to a technicality.13 replies
