UCLA.
My Intro to Sociology was reading an article a week and interpreting it.
Not hard work, but I got a B- in the class.

Anyone Know how FASFA works? I've already paid my tution and fees but it says I have money left over? Does the school get the money or does It go towards books?

I heard you get some of the excess money back. Anyone know if this is true?


You should be able to get back all the money from scholarships/FAFSA if there is any leftover after tuition and fees. Do direct deposit to get it faster.

the school itself is on an actual farm. i remember it smelling terrible and there wasn't much life around the school. the area is pretty crappy if you're looking for a great college experience.
Feb 13, 2011 @ 12:47
^ damn yo. a lot of my counselors and teachers are saying that Davis has a good pharmacy program. Anyone know any other colleges (preferably UCs) in California that has a good pharm. program?
Feb 13, 2011 @ 15:16
kmz, are CSUs really shitty or something?
Feb 13, 2011 @ 18:25

of course they aren't "as good" as UCs but I think you should go to a school that's best for you, especially with the prospective job market. I want to work in entertainment management and I really wanted to go to Berkeley and major in business but I realized that would be a huge waste of money since I don't even need a degree to do what I want to do. I chose to go to SFSU instead just to be in the bay and to get a degree as a back up plan. Not everyone needs to go to the most prestigious school especially if they can't pay for it. I'd hate to go to a 30k a year school and not be able to get a job afterward. However, if you want to be a lawyer, doctor, and start in a high position you should aim high with schools.

Yo, is it possible to get into a UC (not berkeley or LA but like Irvine or something) if I end up getting like a 3.3-3.5 gpa average (cumulative) by the time my college apps are due next year? I'm a junior in hs now and the only shit that messed me up was pre calculus class this year cuz i ended up getting a D and I was only a few points away from passing that class with a C-. I know i wanna go to a college in california and shit but i was aiming for a UC sooo what are my chances? o and does ethnicity matter to the colleges hella much? lol

You'll get into Riverside, Merced, Santa Cruz. Davis, SB and Irvine is pushing it though. Depends on test scores, extracurricular, and essay. You should take precalc again and see if the grade can be replaced or averaged. I had a 3.7 GPA with really good test scores (90 percentile) and I got denied from SB, LA, and Berkley. Granted my year, 2009, was the most competitive college applications ever

500 million dollar funding cut for UC isnt helping applicants. Make sure you have significant and relevant extra curriculars, not just some club memberships at school

Not to be racist or anything, what's the majority race at uc Davis? Haha just curious
Feb 14, 2011 @ 18:22

Asian.
A lot of the UCs have pretty big asian populations compared to other colleges.

My garbage can eats better than 99% of the world.

depends on the csu. Some notify you earlier than others. They usually send you a letter or notify via email. I know people that got acceptance letters already and even some got theirs awhile ago.

Honestly, essays don't matter that much for any of the UCs, and only UCLA and Berkeley actually care about your extracurriculars. I've got a friend who's on the board of admissions at Berkeley, and from what she's told me, a majority of UC applicants are selected based only on their GPA and SAT scores. If you're at or above the scores and GPA they want, you're in. If you fall below, you're out.
Feb 14, 2011 @ 19:48
yeah imma take pre calc again like online or something. I cud potentially raise my term gpa to a 4.0 if I got a's both semesters. btw i had a friend that graduated in 2009 and she had about the same gpa (3.7-3.8 avg) and got accepted to SB but not Davis. It seems like davis was just really selective in 2009 though cuz I know some ppl that had above that average like 4.0+ range and still didn't get in. So i'm honestly shit confused about the admissions. I'm just concerned that even if i get hella hella good SAT scores then I still won't get accepted into the higher tier UCs.In the lower tier, i've been to Santa Cruz and I wasn't feelin the campus too much, idk bout Riverside and Merced but i've heard riverside really isnt that good of a UC. idk tho.

I'm a first year at UCLA. I had pretty decent test scores and GPA, but I really do think they emphasize extracurricular A LOT more than the other UC's. I got into all UC's (didnt apply to Berkeley however). If you have any question about UCLA, ask away haha.
