A while back, my school submitted the ELC reports for the UCs.
Now, as the UC GPA rankings have been published, I have discovered one of two things:
1) I have been disqualified because I am right below the cutoff for my magnet program at top 6.5% percent, the people right above me are top 5%.
2) My UC GPA was not modified to include the CL (Community College) GPA points for my 10th grade year, and therefore this is the reason I was cut off out of ELC.
Had the GPA points been added, I would have been in the top 5% with a 4.0 UC GPA. Instead, it is a 3.9 GPA, which disqualified me from ELC.
Should I appeal the ELC situation? Or let it be. It's not that I want to go to a UC in particular but it's the principle of it all!

You can't appeal ELC, the decisions of whose considered ELC are made in the summer and can't be changed because it's too late.

Perhaps on a normal scale, no, but I clarified my points addition with the UC Pathways BEFORE ELC eligibility was determined, and even showed it to my College Counselor (who I definitely don't get along with). All she said was that she couldn't manually change anything (which is a complete lie, I've seen her do it before).
Aargh, so angry!

Tlaktan: here are my 2 cents.
1 cent: if you really don't want to go to a UC, then expend your time and energy on something else.
The other cent: if you might want to go to a UC, then appeal. You have nothing to lose but the time and, in a number of cases (not specifically involving ELC status) posters have reported that appeals to UCs succeeded despite a belief that they would be useless.

The thing is, I may consider UCLA or UCB, and the problem is that ELC students generally get in UCLA or UCB at a greater rate than the general applicant pool.
