what GE class got the cutest bitches?
no matter the school, all the cute girls are in nursing classes like anatomy. psychology is number 2. if you're majoring in engineering or cs gl bruh.. rule of thumb: the harder the class, the fewer/uglier the girls

so much truth in this post.
upper division/major classes lack any cute girl at all.

State apps are easy.. just fill out basic high school info and you're done. No essays, nothing. should take no more than 30 mins. you do have to fill out one for each school though which can be annoying. 

UC's are basically the same except you have to write 2 personal statements for a total of 1000 words. You also have to write a couple sentences about each of your extracurriculars. As soon as apps start (oct 1? i think) fill out all the other pages. For the remainder of the month, just work on perfecting your essays. The prompts might even be up already (1 of them is usually the same.) Follow this advice and you'll b stress free 

Now Idk bout finance major, but with 3.0, you're in for states. UC's might be tougher since they use GPA cutoffs. I'd apply to others like Irvine and Riverside as well since all you have to do is check it off when you're applying. USC is a complete crapshoot. Common app is a pain in the ass too.. but if you have any more questions let me know.  

Edit: I HIGHLY recommend considering community college if u haven't alrdy. saves you a butt load of dough + u get your GEs done. You do miss out a bit on the freshmen college experience though if you value that stuff. Think about what you find important then decide.

UCSB got a really good school of business so shoot for that. Whats your SAT like? judging from your gpa alone you might only get the cal states, ucsc, and davis if you lucky. Unless you're like native american or you wrote a legit ass personal statement.

there's still time to retake that shit. how bad do you want it dude? trust me you don't wanna be going to cc for 2 years. All my friends that did it were miserable while I had the best time of my life dormin at a UC. But yeah 3.0 ain't gonna cut it. I remember after UCs accept you, they make you maintain above a 3.0 otherwise they can rescind your acceptance. Like I said tho there's still hope. It just depends on if you're willing to work for it or not. Take a bunch of practice SATs to get familiar with it and then shoot for that 2000+ score

tbh we know nothing about his situation. he could be a homeless disabled native american for all we know. however, if you're white/asian middle class.. SATs wont save u bro. I got s pretty good score and all I got was UCR. Unless you exhibit a positive trend in GPA during 11th/12th or you're a minority other than asian.. ain't looking too good. 

again highly recommend CC. kill it at CC 2 years and stack ur bread. better doors will open for you than the ones you got right now

That's how I feel towards the 2 year route.

Have any of you guys done the TAG program? (2 year CC then transfer)? If so, how was your experience? I understand that the requirements are different for each school, but if you guys would, please share the requirements. Thanks

all the upper UCs like berk, la, and sd don't do tag anymore. last year was SD's last year. best school to tag now would be SB.. got the cali vibe and great party school (i actually met a dude that decided not to go there bc of elliot rodgers Lmao) 

from my experience its not really necessary.. unless you're deadset on going to that school. as long as your gpa is solid, the schools you tag you'll probably get into anyway. but ya gpa is number 1. my tag fell through for sd cause I got lazy my last year and my gpa dipped below 3.5

Damn, yeah I was reading about SD discontinuing tag. Pretty bummed that SD discontinued because that's where I was hoping to transfer to. I'm thinking about Irvine, Santa Cruz, and Santa Barbara; mostly because a lot of my cousins are alumni. Is there any other way/procedure to transfer from a CC to UC or is the TAG program the only option?

I mean you can just straight out apply. It doesn't HAVE to be through TAG. TAG is just a guarantee that if you maintain a certain gpa, you'll be offered admission (not sure about major). You can definitely still go to UCSD.

My biggest concern about going to a CC is wasting two years their as well as my units and potentially my freshmen year. However, tbh I'd be lying if I said my financial situation is stable. I don't have a job atm and I'm going into senior yr. ATP, It's between going to a CC for 2 years and going to a UC or apply and hopefully I get in. I wouldn't mind going to a state but I would prefer a UC.

Someone who has taken the alternative CC route to UC please break down whether or not it's worth it and it's overall impact and benefits. I extremely want to get out of Sac, so Sac st and UC Davis would be my last choices.

i did that so you guys wouldn't have to. Naw but serious i did that and i ended up fucking around and took 3 years to transfer. Im going to SJ state but i got into a few UC like Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara. State is alot cheaper and i need to get a MS so i figured i would go to a UC for graduate school. Any ways community college is like high school with more hood rats easy to meet women and classes are fairly easy. if you go to a CC then transfer to a state you would more likely than not graduate without any debt. also at CC you can do the TAG program where depending on your GPA starts at like 3.2 and up you get guaranteed admission to most UCs
