Lindy, I just bought your book. I have been working at community colleges for almost ten years as a counselor, but I have been so impressed with all the research — and detailed but easy to understand explanations — found in your book. I just wanted to thank you for creating this AMAZING resource! Excellent work!
If I could rate this 6 stars, I would. Lindy provides you with everything you need to know, and plenty of things you never thought of. I am seriously amazed that something like this exists. If you are interested in transferring to a UC from any CCC, buy this book! You will be so prepared!
How to Transfer to a UC from a California Community College is a must have for all CCC students wishing to transfer to any of the UC’s. Highly recommended!!
At first I was hesitant to buy this excellent book because at 570 pages, I thought I won’t live long enough to read it. But I’m glad I did. It’s laid out in short chapters with lots of charts and lists. Plus, not every chapter refers to your situation so you can jump right over it. You want to transfer to a UC? You can’t do better than this.
This book was recommended to me by a another student and I seriously can’t say enough good things about it. I was so confused about the process of transferring, even after talking to my advisor. This just lays it all out in a way that is totally understandable. I particularly like the question and answers at the end, where she gives real life examples and solutions.
We got a copy of this book after a frustrating college admissions meeting. I am impressed (and relieved), not only with how well it is laid out, but also by the sheer scope of material covered. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that need to be aligned exactly right, which is daunting. But the good news is if you follow the book correctly, your kid really stands an excellent shot at getting into a UC. I swear – almost any 10 random pages are worth the price.
Ms. King does a phenomenal job summing up the TRANSFER process. There are a lot of books on getting into college as a freshman but none discuss the TRANSFER process, and neither are as complete as this. The book is an easy read and a great help to families looking at taking steps to get into University of California.
This is my first review on amazon, and this review is because of Lindy. She is perfect and best consultant I have ever seen in my life. Why? She knows what she is writing about. It’s her job and she is master on it. She knows all the exceptions about transferring. I recommended her book to my friends, and I think this book is a gift.
This book gave me exactly the answers I needed, as well as answers to questions I hadn’t even thought of. She explained the transfer process in ways that my college advisors still can’t do after going to many appointments with them. I recommend purchasing this book because it will help with the application, writing the personal statement, and deciding which UC ultimately feels right for you.
