    Hoping to gain acceptance to UCSD

    Sponsored Ad:
    I have applied as transfer for Fall 2007. With the help of three AP tests as well as attending two community colleges simultaneously I will have completed my 60 units by the end of spring (I completed two years in one). The classes I have taken nearly fill out the general Education requirements of Roosevelt college. I have a 3.5 GPA. I was curious what my chances are. I have heard conflicting stories on how hard UCSD is on transfer applications and was wondering if someone may know if i am even in the ballpark of what they are looking for. Also I have no Ds. My lowest grade is a single C in German 1. Any input is greatly appreciated!


    As backups i have also applied to UCI and UCR.

    hey crazedchargerfan! you're in luck! i went to UCSD for undergrad. I got admitted as a normal app outta college so I'm not too sure how strict they are on transfer students but i know a couple of friends who have gotten in with the same stats as you. I hope you have so good extracurriculars bc UCSD likes good grades and leadership skills/experience on the side. A lot of admittance decisions are also based on how well of a personal statement you submitted. well i wish you well and remember to post up your success stories on the forum! we would love to hear a followup!

    Actually, you never know. Keep your hopes up.

    What major are you transferring into?

    Full Sweep of Denial. UCSD and UCI. Apparently I am not eligible. I hope their formulaic admissions process continues to work out well for them.

    Yikes! Sorry to hear about that. Yeah, they're pretty strict about admissions. Have you tried talking to them about making up the classes (during the summer, perhaps) before you start in the fall?

    I did try and speak to them about it but they were very rude and short with me. They told me had I done any resaerch before applying I would of known I needed that class. I never questioned needing it I was trying to explain my situation but they were not hearing any of it. Even though I do not have this class will they consider an appeal or put it in the rectangle in- box before even reading it? I also have some compelling personal reasons I lightly touched on in my app. In my appeal I could expand more I suppose.

    It never hurts to appeal, and if you have a compelling story, especially a financial one, you'll have a chance. Try to explain yourself clearly, without getting too angry or blaming your counselors, as they simply may not believe you. Tell them that you'll be enrolling in a class in the summer and that you're confident that you'll do well once your accepted.

    Sorry to hear about all your troubles...
