Transferring [07 Nov 2010|12:31pm]


I'm planning to transfer to UCI next fall. However, I have one concern.

1) I didn't submit my UCI TAG application during Sept. 1-30 because on the website, it said that I would not be eligible for TAG if I took my first UC-transferrable writing course in Fall 2010. However, when I went on a UCI campus tour, I was told that it was fine for me to take my first UC-transferrable writing course in Fall 2010 as long as I can complete my second UC-transferable writing course the following Spring semester. So is it possible for me to transfer to UCI even if I didn't submit my TAG application as long as I applied to UCI during the course of this month?

Need Help [10 Nov 2006|04:24pm]

I am a single mother and recent graduate of UCI, I am in need of a babysitter for a 9 year old boy on Monday and Wednesday afternoon/evenings. I am a hairstylist at Great clips by Albertsons and he goes to Turtlerock which is close by. I need someone who can pick him up from school and keep him until 7 or 8 at night. I am not rich, so i can offer you 1/3 of my daily tips and free haircare (haircuts /advice) anyone interested in helping me out. i can be reached via email at imgoddess4u@gmail.com. Even if i could find 2 people to do one day a piece that would be good. Thanks in advance.

another annoying perspective student question [21 Oct 2006|12:16am]


im currently a senior in high school in s. california
& im basically done with my application, but
i still have a doubt:
i chose undeclared major because im still not sure
whether i want to do spanish or biology, but im 100%
sure i want to be in the pre-med program.
where do you state that you want to be pre-med?
in the application, or is that until you get accepted
during freshman enroll time where you choose that?
& srry for the annoying question.

Hi, my name is Katie and I want to get out of my lease at VDC, so I can live with my friends in a house off campus. They won't let me break my lease but I can SUB-CONTRACT my apartment to a female undergrad who has NEVER APPLIED TO LIVE AT VDC OR VDC NORTE. This is a must (I don't know why, VDC is weird like that). You also CANNOT be on their wait list. What you will have is 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. You will be sharing the apartment with two other undergraduate females. The bathroom is shared but you will have your own room. The amount per month is $652.00 a month (this includes utilities, cable, internet, etc.). It is a one year lease, and you would move in at the end of June (when I find out the exact date, I will let you know). In the process of sub-contracting, you would be taking my spot in VDC, therefore releasing me of the lease and your name would be on it permanently, and mine taken off. I will love you FOREVER if you help me out. For more information on VDC, visit these links:

1. For floor-plan and rates:

2. For Amenities available at VDC:

If you are interested, please contact me ASAP!! So we can get this party started. haha. All I ask of you is that you pay me the $150 security deposit, which you will receive when your lease terminates and you move out.

My primary e-mail is:

1. Katie35463@aol.com

My school e-mail (which I don't check every day, usually) is:

2. KLeinow@uci.edu

My IM screen name is:

Incoming freshman wondering [ in your opinion ] which dorm is the best. I don't mind people havin fun around me, but I would like to get some good, quiet nights of rest every now and then. I'm also not into sharing bathrooms with more than 5 people- or is it not that bad?

Visit this link for pictures of all the stuff I'm selling: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=2115754707

In addition, if you're interested in purchasing any Star Wars novels, let me know. I have created a Excel spreadsheet of the ones I'm getting rid of complete with publication date, condition, and other information.

About pricing: I'm taking best offers for everything (even if that means just a good home for the some of the stuff and no money for it), as I'm donating any and all proceeds to the earthquake victims in South Asia.

I am stuck in a bit of a bind. I am a community college student with about a 3.7 GPA, I am also one of the first people in my family to actually go beyond just community college. I am very active in clubs at school, I do a lot of volunteering work, etc.

I am going to try and transfer to a UC school here in Southern CA – the deadline is Nov 30.
I have most of the paper work for my requirements and transfer in order, but I am having a major problem getting any help or direction on my personal statement.

At this point I can either transfer as a History or Political Science major, I have enough units and requirements for both. The thing is that I have been trying to get some direction from counselors at school, but the community college that I go to pretty much sucks. Nobody is really helping me besides telling me to “answer the question” and “write about yourself” – our school used to have a transfer center, but it was shut down due to budgetary reasons.

So I am here asking you all for some help. Would any of you know of any good sites regarding personal statement samples for History and Political science majors seeking admission to a UC school – or any type of four year university?

I really don’t want to copy anyone’s work, I just need to read something else and see what they are actually looking for, what’s going to give me that edge? I have absolutely no direction.
Thanks a lot for the help

SPOP [01 Jun 2005|12:25pm]

What the other people said...
SPOP opinion 1
SPOP opinion 2
SPOP opinion 3

What Ann says...
For me, SPOP was totally worth it. I had a totally amazing weekend. You do so much within 3 days (not even, more like 2 days, 3rd you're too busy packing and checking out to do anything) that it felt like you've been there for a week. The orientation is still part of it, it was pretty useful and guarantee to be the only boring part of the whole weekend. Other than that, it's all fun.

It's a little pricey for one weekend, but honestly, I had so much fun that this problem never crossed my mind.

For Mini-SPOP, I heard a lot of people complain that it wasn't worth it. Because you have very little time to do anything and the orientation gonna seem like the major part of it. And I know you can just go to the orientation for free and ditch the whole SPOP thing.

But keep in mind, any experience, especially college, is what you make of it. You can't go with a negative attitude and expect to have a good time.

Another thing, if you're offer to be apart of any other program for free, don't hesitate to apply and participate.

Anyone else in the community has been to SPOP, Mini-SPOP, CAMP, Summer Bridge or any other UCI programs please comment and share your experience. This will go in the FAQs.

On 26 December 2004, an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale struck the area off the western coast of northern Sumatra, triggering massive tidal waves, or tsunamis, that inundated coastal areas in countries all around the Indian Ocean rim – from Indonesia to Somalia. At least 185,000 people have died in the disaster, with over 525,000 injured, 1,600,000 displaced and over 1,300,000 homeless. The catastrophe now ranks as the third-worst natural disaster in the past 100 years. It is the deadliest tsunami ever. It will take another four weeks to recover all the bodies, Yet the biggest problem facing disaster zones is not the dead, but the living. Tens of thousands of survivors remain stranded in Aceh as a massive multinational aid effort battles to get food, medicine and shelter to cut-off communities. Temporary camps in the province teem with hundreds of thousands of displaced people who have no homes, jobs or family to return to.

In Sri Lanka -- the second worst-hit country with about 31,000 killed --more than 400,000 people are still being sheltered in public buildings, temples and churches along the island's coast, with plans to move them into tent villages. Weary and traumatized, they bear psychological as well as physical scars. Warnings from the UN and World Health Organization that disease outbreaks could double the disaster toll have so far proved unfounded.
