“Please describe how you have prepared for your intended major, including your readiness to succeed in your upper-division courses once you enroll at the university.” Some helpful information the personal statement: I am transferring and need help describing why I am prepared for upper-division courses at UC and why I would succeed. I started community college with an average 2.0 GPA but once I changed majors to Sociology my grades began to improve. My GPA currently during my last semester is 4.0. Through my transcript, you can begin to see my improvement in my motivation in school and school work. I completed the requirements for a sociology transfer and even incorporated courses that were not required and could associate with sociology, for instance, black studies. For courses that did not have an outstanding grade, I repeated or achieved academic renewal.
