Guidelines for Putting Together the Best Possible UC Application

Having great answers to the Personal Insight Questions (or not having great answers, for that matter), alone, is not going to make (or break) the admission decision.

UC Application How-To Guides go over other parts of the application that can contribute to the success of your UC Application and provide tips and tricks to make the application submission process go smoothly.

if we use a different email/account will they still look at your last years application?

That’s a really good question. I think the campuses have a way to detect duplicate applications (probably the same kind of method used to match test scores with applications for the freshman applicants). It wouldn’t be a stretch for them to use the same method to screen for previous application; but I don’t know that they do that (maybe they will now, since you let the cat out of the bag).

Hi Ms. Sun, I put in 2 of my grades incorrectly (inputted quarter grades instead of semester) and failed to notice until afternoon submitting. I’ve already sent an email, how can I fix this? Will this impact my chances of admission?

I have an explanation here; I doubt the procedure changed from last year, but I won’t know for sure until I call, which I won’t do until later this week (the waiting queue is clogged up right now).
