My name is Lindy King …
and I offer UC admissions consulting services to students hoping to transfer to one of the nine UCs. I wrote my book, How to Transfer to a UC from a California Community College: The Unofficial Guide with one aim in mind: to fill a void and help students transfer to the University of California.
California law mandates that 1/3 of all admitted students to the UC every year must be a transfer student, but the UCs have made the process so complex many students can’t get their foot in the door, even if they are competitive. I’m here to tell you, if you know the rules and maintain a strong GPA you can definitely get into a UC.
How to Transfer to a UC from a California Community College: The Unofficial Guide is, I believe, the only book on the market that tackles every aspect of the transfer process in easy-to-follow, easy to navigate sections. It is a way for all students, regardless of income level, to have access to the overall UC process, so they can pro-actively team with their CCC and UC advisors and transfer to UC Berkeley, UCLA, or any other UC.
I am a writer with extensive experience in various professional mediums. For several years, I wrote on film for the San Francisco Chronicle, and also was a contributing writer for the L.A. Times and Weekly Variety, among others. I’ve also spent a dozen-plus years writing marketing collateral for corporations and non-profits. I had two movie screenplays optioned with indie film companies in Hollywood, as well as a children’s TV pilot optioned as a potential series. I am a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley (English major with a focus in Journalism) and am working on my first novel, a supernatural thriller set in the 1960s. I am also a volunteer reader of UC Berkeley Alumni scholarship essays.
