Hey guys, I am currently going to school in Arizona and am in my sophmore year. I had a horrible first semester where I concentrated way to hard on making friends instead of making the grade. I rebounded nicely second semester by making the Dean's list. My overal GPA is 3.09 and I am aiming for a 3.7 - 4.0 this semester with 16 credits. I may even take winter classes if it will enhance my chances of transferring.
Anyway, I want to know what my chances of transferring to UCLA, USC, or UCI are...? I know UCLA needs my ap by NOV, which doesn't give me too much time to improve. USC on the other hand wants my transfer app my by Feb, when I could very well have a 3.3 3.4+... I also have an extra A (three credits) from a Community College in LA.
More about me:
Playing percussion for 6 years
Summer internship at prominant entertainment co
(I have applied for several community service positions this semester so I hope to put in around 20 hrs a month)
I've had some written material published
Rather then receiving a "bump" as the only response, I'd like to know more about how I could enhance any chance I have. I am currently a Journalism/Mass Comm major but would switch if it enhances my chances of admission. I also thought about applying to USC this year and then if denied, taking a year off next year and apply to UCLA and UCI when my grades would be higher from this school year.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Are you coming from a community college or 4 year?
If it's 4 year, it's gonna be alot harder to transfer units to another 4 year, than if you were at a community college.
As for USC, an admissions person told me that you only needed to have 30 transferable units completed(they have the list on the site) and that if you had like a overall 3.5 or above your chances of admissions to USC are like 70% of all transfers, and if it's not in the 3.5 your in the usual 30% acceptance rate.

PS I think it might be a lot harder to transfer in from another state to a UC since most transfers are from community colleges. UCLA acceptance rate for transfer, is like 38 percent, if I can remember correctly.
Another school in the LA area you might want to look at is Occidental, it's a liberal arts college, and you might have a better chance transfering there than to a UC.

I am coming from a four year school. It doesn't matter at all that I am a California resident? I don't think its possible for me to attain a 3.5 by Feb, however I know that it is deffinetly possible to get a 3.4 with some hard work and a winter class. Also, Im really not to concerned about the transferring of units. I just want to be near home...
