Part One of a Three Part Series
I never hear from juniors in May – they’re way too busy with finals and tests. But after they settle into summer, many of these rising seniors start thinking about their college applications. And since most of my students here in California will be applying to at least a handful of UC campuses, I get a lot of the same questions from all of them. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the University of California application process, from seniors and underclassmen alike.
1. Do 9th and 12th grades matter?
Yes and no. When evaluating your academic performance, the UCs recalculate your GPA using only your grades from sophomore and junior year.
