I'm a senior in high school and I got into UCR (Undeclared-life sciences. college of natural and agricultural science) and CSULA (Undeclared interest in nursing).
I was originally planning to go to UCI and then transfer into their program (assuming that i didn't get into their program as a freshman) but that didn't happen. I got rejected from uci. I saw on their site that transfers accepted are 16% rather than 4% for freshmens.
UCR doesn't have a nursing program but on this site
In some programs such as physical therapy, nursing and dental hygiene, the student may complete two or three years here and then transfer to a professional school offering more specialized training and course work for the baccalaureate degree.
The lower-division requirements for the Biology major prepare students to take the specific upper-division courses required for admission to the professional schools in the allied health area. Not all the courses listed above are required by each type of professional school. A course in nutrition is usually required by nursing schools. This can probably be met by BCH 010 (Introduction to Nutrition). Students wishing to obtain their degree in biology at UCR before transferring should select additional upper-division course work in biology and related fields appropriate for the career objective.
So maybe I could go to UCR, request for a change in major to biology then take some prerequisites? I also heard its harder to transfer from UC to UC.
I was leaning more towards UCR because I wanted that "college experience" of having a roommate and everything.
Go to csula then transfer to uci. The major i got in doesn't really mean much until I apply for csula's nursing program right? Either way that's probably going to take a long time and it's also selective 10-12% I think?
Go to pcc a community college, get my prerequsites done then transfer to uci.
HOWEVER, even if i do go to pcc and get into uci after 2 years, what if I don't get into their nursing program? what happens then??
PLEASE HELP!! I'm lost and no one seems to have the answer.
