I found out today that I won’t make it into SFSU’s fall semester in 2004. I won’t have enough transferable units to make it to the November 10th meeting with the SFSU counselor and gain admission in time. Instead, I’m going to try for spring 2005, by adding 10 units over summer session. So, my plan has changed dramatically since last quarter:
Prior to Spring 2003: 10 transferable units.
Spring 2003 Japanese 3 5 units MAJOR History 17A 5 units REQ 2 Philosophy 25 4 units Area D - Subtotal: 24 transferable units Fall 2003 Japanese 4 5 units MAJOR Japanese 13A 3 units MAJOR Economics 1A 5 units MINOR (Area D) - Subtotal: 37 transferable units. Winter 2004 Japanese 5 5 units MAJOR English 1A 5 units REQ 1 (Area A) Speech 1A 4.5 units Area A Math 10 5 units Area B - Subtotal: 56.5 transferable units Spring 2004 Japanese 6 5 units MAJOR English 1B 5 units Area A Biology 10+10L 5 units Area C Political Science 1 5 units Area D - Subtotal: 76.5 transferable units
As you can see, 76.5 is 7.5 units shy. 🙁
Summer 2004 History 17B 5 units Area D Astronomy 10+10L 5 units Area B - Subtotal: 86.5 transferable units
After Summer Session, I’m eligible for spring admission/registration. But since I’m not going to be able to go to school until spring anyway, I might as well take one more quarter at Foothill while I can (cheaper tuition), and get in as many lower division/general education course as I can.
Fall 2004 Music 3A 5 units Area B Economics 1B 5 units MINOR (Area D) Human Performance 48 3 units Area E Japanese 13B 3 units MAJOR - Subtotal: 97.5 transferable units
Much better. So now I can enter SFSU having completed all my GE requirements and concentrate on my major/minor studies. I feel tons better having a plan based on more concrete information.
