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!!
Ms King was amazing!! I was working on my UC Berkeley appeal and she was able to take my mumbo jumbo of thoughts, solidify them and translate them into something eloquent, while still maintaining my voice… I highly recommend her for help regarding any essay, especially college essays. By far the most helpful assistance I have come across in this difficult appeal process.
Thank you so much Lindy for explaining the community college system to me and my son and getting us on board for hopefully a great two year run. There are so many facets to getting it all done efficiently, and you described everything in an easy to follow manner. I look forward to having you work with my son later to make sure he stays on track.
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.
I can’t even begin to thank you enough for this. I knew my essay needed a lot of work but I was just so incredibly stressed about the situation I couldn’t even think properly. Thank you so much. The suggestions you’ve made are phenomenal and I’m incredibly grateful that you took the time to do this for me for free, someone you don’t even know!
I was really impressed with how well my appeal letter came out after I showed it to you and you discussed how it should be streamlined and more focused. I don’t know how well my chances are, but I wish I had had you earlier to help with my personal statements.
Just two emails from Lindy explained more to me about what I needed than I got at my community college, and corrected a serious issue that might have prevented me from transferring. I got in one year.
You helped demystify the process of transferring to a UC from community college, and helped my son establish a game plan and significantly build his confidence after a very rough patch in high school. I particularly appreciate how much you went out of your way to make sure my son knew he deserved to be at a UC.
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.
You always provide really helpful information! I’ve done some mistakes in my UC application, and your responses gave me proper ways to handle them. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
