how many people actually take 2 years or less to get out of a community college and into a college of their choice? I see way too many people taking "breaks" from school and needing to take at least 3 years to transfer out


it took me about 2 years and a half to reach the minimum requirements for transferable units, but i'm going to stay and finish out the year since it's a bit cheaper. you could transfer after two years if you don't take any remedial courses and basically just get into the classes you want, which is only getting harder by the semester/quarter.

Transferring to UCs and CSUs is easy if you live in CA and go to CC here and meet the requirements

Rank of CSUs:
Cal Poly
SDSU
CSULB

Does HAAS only offer a general business admin undergrad program? Do they concentrate on any areas of business?

Id go with econ if I were you

they have the grad school program as well. It's business administration, but yeah I'm probably going the econ route. I'm taking CS prereqs next semester, which is all the math shit.

Any Engineering Management and/or Systems Engineering majors? I'm the only one that I know outside of my school. It's such a dope program to be in.

honestly I would say no. that kind of shit is hard as fuck. I got a 660 on my SAT math, took Bio, AP Bio, and AP Chem in hs. I go to a heavy bio/chem/medical sciences college and I can honestly say I don't think I would pass the first class in any chem series. Don't limit yourself by not trying, but definitely have a back up plan.

Not to say you shouldn't try it, seriously. Maybe just take like one class that you know is a prereq for the major (like the first class in the chem series, or the intro engineering class) but I wouldn't just dive in without having options. It also depends on your competition, where are you going to college?

Technically it works like this: http://inquiry.princetonreview.com/leadgentemplate/GPA_popup.asp

But almost all classes (all the ones I or my friends have ever been in) are graded on a curve. Normally each department has a required average (usually between 2.7-3.1) that they set the class at, so that makes a significant difference. For example, in the math class I'm taking right now, I've gotten around a 90% on both the midterms but they both translated into a 4.0 because in terms of the average of the class those scores were far enough above to be in the 4.0 range.

guys, i know im probably gonna get trolled the fuck out lol. but i got a serious question; i got caught cheating in a stupid final for a stupid ass class (idk what i was thinking). how fucked am i? anybody ever go through this?
Dec 13, 2011 @ 18:46
^ How'd you get caught?

I think you just flunk the final. I don't think your teacher will fail you in the actual class. Let's hope you have a strong overall grade before getting that 0 on the final.
Dec 13, 2011 @ 19:33
alright, i'm gonna go into every detail here because i think i can argue this with the dean, board or whoever i may have to speak with. i was taking a final for an introductory art history class (the easiest class i'm taking, but the one i'm doing the worst in because that class is so boring and pointless) i took out my phone and tried to google answers i didn't know (did this for like 2 answers, the rest i did on my own). the whole time i was looking at the professor and i didn't see her looking at me at all. some people started handing in exams and i'm thinking someone in my class saw me and decided to leave her a note or something snitching on me. before i know it, when i was finishing up my last few things of the exam to hand it in, she comes up to me and tells me she has seen me cheating on my phone. she asked for my exam and to leave, i didn't argue and did just that. this is the first time something like this happens to me so i'm just wondering how worried i should be about this. if someone has gone through something like this, please tell me about your experience. thank you, much appreciated.
Dec 13, 2011 @ 20:51
I don't know man, at my school if you get caught cheating you get sent to the honor board and you get an XF(academic dishonesty) for the class, but the board can change to an F if you appeal. I don't know if you'll get kicked out, but the academic dishonesty will be on your transcript. Smh can't believe someone snitched on you man, just a little googling.
Dec 13, 2011 @ 21:32
At my school if u get caught they put something on record and u fail dat course, if ur caught a 2nd time ur gone

If you get caught cheating, automatic F on test. For my school, if you fail the final you can't pass the course. That differs within schools though so it might be different for yours.

Also, your mistake was not arguing about it. If she came up to you and you had the phone put away, she can't prove you cheated. You can just say you never had your phone out and there would be no way to prove it.

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

Dec 13, 2011 @ 22:45
at my school you'd fail the class and would have to appear in front of a honors court if you're found guilty you're expelled or some shit like that
Dec 13, 2011 @ 22:51
If she never saw you directly, then how could she have done that? If she really did see you then why didn't she stop you when you first started? If someone really did snitch on you, it will most likely come down to their word against yours. In which case you will most likely be given the benefit of the doubt.

At our Uni, if you get caught cheating then there's a good chance they'll ask you to leave, for good. They made it clear that they would not tolerate cheating under any circumstances. It was all included in a massive contract/agreement we signed when we first enrolled.
