Biology GPA for Transfers 2016 – Berkeley, UCLA, San Diego

I get a lot of requests from potential Biology majors about which major to choose so I decided to compile a list of the Biology-related majors at each UC, along with the mid-range GPAs of admitted transfers.  The admit rates indicate how hard it is to get in, with a lower percentage being the most competitive.
