Transcript and UC Application Review
Depending on major choice and the number of UCs a student is applying to, an analysis of a college transcript can be a long process to ascertain that all major requirements are met for each UC, that all rules are followed within that UC department, that sequences are followed and AP is awarded correctly, etc. Additional research is needed for non-CCC colleges, possibly going off of syllabi, pre-requisites and web descriptions to attempt to ascertain transferability. (Note: final determination is always made by the UC.)
I have been able to resolve many an impending disaster simply by understanding the nuances of the complicated AP credit award system (different at each UC and department) and English course non-fulfillment, among other issues. If you are coming from a non-CCC it is vital to get a transcript evaluation somewhere. Often, but not always, the UCs will provide a course evaluation.
There are three main sections of the application that need care: (1) coursework inputting/analysis, (2) essays, and (3) the extra-curricular review. I offer two services: A DETAILED review including verification that all courses for each major at every UC are accounted for; verification that all AP exams are calculated correctly; and that general ed has been followed correctly. This part is quite time-consuming. A detailed review also includes checking the rest of the application, verifying major choice at each UC, checking over ECs and essays to assure it is accurate and complete. (This does not include editing essays.) A LIMITED review is everything but the transcript/AP/gen ed evaluation.
