2023.06.01 07:38 CartoonistSevere4348 Chance me, violently average student

Biracial Asian/White female
GPA: 3.3 (3.1 unweighted), class doesn’t rank
4 AP classes
Intended major: Psychology
Not sure how to categorize this but my public high school is very academically competitive. Often times people would say things like “getting a B in this class is like getting an A at a smaller school” something along the lines of that. Culture is very cutthroat, everyone is against each other here…
Freshman year Lacrosse Coach’s Award
Freshman year Lacrosse All-Tournament Team (? don’t really think this matters)
Sophomore year Lacrosse Most Inspirational Award
Junior year character award (teachers chose 1 student out of all their classes whom they think is a student with the best character!)
2 years JV Lacrosse 2 years JV Tennis Environmental Club Treasurer (ran beach clean ups, arranged a protest) Women’s Rights Club President Tutored K-2 students for 2 years, worked as a TA in a 3rd grade classroom for 6 months 1 year band 1 year as a volunteer photographer at school (did not charge for my photos, just wanted to give back to the community) 100+ volunteer hours in the community and school
Schools I plan to apply to (California Resident):
CSU Fullerton Cal Poly Slo Cal Poly Pomona CSU Long Beach CSU Los Angeles CSU San Marcos San Diego State University
UC Irvine UC Santa Cruz UC Riverside UC Davis
I could also use a reverse chance me if these schools are all unrealistic. Only CSU or UC though! Mom has calvets so my tuition is waived at only these schools.

2023.06.01 07:10 Kaiserafu My Final Quarter

I started at UC Davis as a transfer from a community college in SoCal. Now I’m about to graduate in June. For every other quarter I’ve gone to nearly every lecture and had been actively participating. In this final quarter I have gone to maybe 4 lectures total and cheesed every assignment or test. So far so good!

2023.06.01 07:00 lptos Application/School list help - CA ORM, average stats, ZERO non-clinical

Hello, I received my MCAT score back recently and would like some input on my school list and application for this cycle. For reference, I graduated in 2022 and am heading into my 2nd gap year now. I am absolutely open to either MD or DO. I do prefer to stay on the coasts, but with how my application is looking, I will be happy going anywhere in the US.
GPA: 3.69 cGPA, 3.65 sGPA (upward trend)
MCAT: 512 (128/128/128/128)
State of Residence: CA (no ties to any other state)
ORM; Asian male
SES; Low, qualified for FAP
Ghost/Preview: Not taken. Just recently found out about this test; planning on taking this July 2023, but j
Clinical paid:
I will be applying to MDs where I am at least around median GPA/MCAT. Currently my list is still a very first draft based on those stats. I will also be applying to the big 5 DO schools and a few additional DOs. I know that my non-clinical volunteering is pretty much non-existent. Does highschool volunteering count at all? It was mentioned in one of my LORs.
Are there any schools you would include? If there are any schools that you think I am not competitive for and that I should exclude, please let me know! I knowRush and Loyola typically value non-clinical volunteering, but I feel my stats and other ECs are okay. Any advice is appreciated!
Central Michigan
Eastern Virginia
George Washington
University of Buffalo (Jacobs)
Temple University (Katz)
Loyola (weak non-clinical volunteering, exclude?)
MCW Wisconsin
Michigan State (no Michigan ties, exclude?)
Northeast Ohio

2023.06.01 06:20 Suspicious-Deal730 T20 hopeful is state school bound...

Intended Major(s): Biology (Engineering & humanities for MIT, Bioengineering for NEU)
Standardized Testing
List the highest scores earned and all scores that were reported.
List all extracurricular involvements, including leadership roles, time commitments, major achievements, etc.
A little vague since I don’t want to be doxxed!
List all awards and honors submitted on your application.
Letters of Recommendation
I got rec letters from my Mandarin teacher, math teacher, school counselor, and research mentor. I never read any of them so I’m unsure how I’d rate them, but I’d say they were pretty decent since I was a fairly involved student.
Yale (0/10): Got into an argument about politics and young people being involved in advocacy :((
Princeton (10/10): Coming off of my Yale interview I was super nervous for this one, but it actually went really well! He had a couple of out-of-the-box questions but based on his responses to my answers I think I was able to handle them well. We exchanged a couple of emails after the interview and he wished me luck!
MIT (10000000000/10): I loved this interview so much! We had so many common interests and our interview lasted for over an hour. As someone who wasn’t the biggest MIT before, this interview made me want to attend so bad.
Cornell (7/10): Not sure if this counts since Cornell’s interview’s aren't evaluative - but this was a pretty basic interview! Nothing too special, but nothing went wrong either.
Duke (6/10): My interviewer seemed very busy and was lowkey preoccupied with work. He was super sweet, but I wasn’t really able to develop a strong connection with him.
Harvard (8/10): We met in person so I was slightly nervous, but we had common interests and I thought that the conversation we had was pretty good!
Looking back, my common app essay was super basic – and it’s a major part of my application that I wish I could change. I’d say my supplementals were much better in quality.
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Reflection/Additional thoughts:
There is honestly so much I wish I could change about my application cycle. Although I did have the few oos acceptances that I would’ve loved to attend - my family did not feel that it was financially worth it to go to any of them (even though they had originally encouraged me to apply to some of these schools!). Everyone says that it's important to find targets/safeties that you'd be happy at - but please make sure that your family is absolutely on board with these schools as well. Ultimately, I wish I had been more clear with my parents about the finances that came with each school on my college list, and crafted my college list to reflect schools that they would be willing to financially support me for. I also don’t really have a clear spike in my activities, and while I don’t regret any of what I did throughout high school, I can see how my application lacked a compelling storyline. Additionally, I really wish I had worked to develop my common app essay more. Getting rejected from Yale in the early round should have clued me in, but I ultimately decided to stick with my essay - and it's something I really regret.
While I'm not exactly going to college where I had hoped, I'm extremely grateful that my state school is offering me a full ride. Although this process didn't turn out the way I had wanted, I'm honestly just excited that it's over!

2023.06.01 05:06 tilapia_3 Summer Research Programs?

Hey everyone!
I know it's really early to ask, but I want to start planning out what I want to do next summer. I go to UC Berkeley and am wondering if there are any undergrad research programs here in UC Davis I could apply to for next summer (involving molecular bio/biochem).
I've tried searching up some programs, but I mostly just find programs about ecology.
Also, has anyone tried cold emailing a professograd student about doing research in their lab even though you don't go to their university? Would that be weird?

2023.06.01 04:17 OilApprehensive7672 What happened to UC admissions?

I found admissions data from a Los Angeles high school's class of 2011. Many things surprised me, such as the high number of students in the top 10% of class accepted to the top UC's. Given that everyone says the UC's are very competitive days and unpredictable, the odds listed in this show otherwise. So I was wondering what happened?
My thinking was that the UC's became less stats focused over time and maybe focused more on diversity. This was a wealthy high school. Alternatively, students on this sub apply heavily to capped CS/Engineering majors which may not have been as competitive at the time.
Admit rate by Weighted GPA decile (except I split the top decile into two)
I downloaded the PDF from the Internet Archive link. Then I converted the PDF to Excel. I deduced the deciles for the Weighted GPA and then filtered applications to each university by Weighted GPA. The admit rate was calculated by diving the number of acceptances by the number of applications.

2023.06.01 03:47 Fabulous_Lab_3623 UC to UC transfer??

Hello, I recently got into UC Davis for Fall 2023. I was pretty settled in going to Davis then I saw that I was waitlisted from Berkeley. It reminded me of how much I wanted to go to Berkeley, so I started considering going to community, but I really do not wanna miss out on the college experiences even though I could probably transfer in one year. Is it almost impossible to transfer from a UC to UC in comparison to from community? I know it may sound hypocritical that I am going to Davis with the intention to transfer out of it, but I think it could be a wise choice. Should I consider community instead?

2023.06.01 03:35 thegreenshirt_ Landscaping Ideas lol

Okay I know a lot of chatters were being annoying and recommending things, but I'm a landscape architecture student at Cal Poly and CA yards/landscapes are something I'm passionate about. This is just unsolicited advice and my opinion :p
There are generally two types of turf grasses: warm-season and cool-season. Cool-season grasses are more commonly used because they stay greener throughout the year but require more water.
Here are some potential groundcover options! :)
-UC Verde Buffalograss: Buffalograss is a common turfgrass, but this is a special cultivar made by researchers at UC Davis and Riverside that can use up to 75% LESS water!
-No-Mow fescue: California has a lot of native grasses, but they tend to be meadowy/long or bunching and ornamental, so not great for turfs. I'm planning on using CA-native (low water) grasses from Stover Seed to redo my backyard. These are cool-season grasses, mostly fescues, but generally require less water, and you can let them go dormant in the summer when they'll turn a nice golden color :) Some of them are short enough that you don't have to mow them.
-Mulch: Mulch is anything applied on top of soil, usually around 1 to 2 inches thick. It's usually a mix of things like tree bark (chips or shredded), leaf material, or even things like newspaper, rubber, or a sheet of landscaping fabric. It helps smother weeds so they can't grow, preserves soil, and obviously doesn't require any watering. A whole yard of mulch probably wouldn't be a good idea, but it can be great for pathways/sections and reduce the amount of grass and therefore water demand. I'm sure there are mulches commercially sold and many of them would be soft enough for a dog's paws :)
-Warm season grasses: These require less water but tend to go dormant and turn brown during winter. They include things like Zoysia grass or St. Augustine grass.
-Smart controllers for irrigation: These require a professional to set up, but they automatically consider factors like your zip code, current weather, type of grass, and tend to be automatic and easy to use once installed.
There are probably other options but that's my two cents! I hope I'm not coming off as parasocial, and these are just some recommendations and something I'm passionate about T-T. ALSO! California has a LOT of diverse biomes (Mediterranean, desert, mountains, forests, grassy valleys). LA isn't desert, it's considered a Mediterranean climate because the coast moderates temperature and makes it cooler than if you go farther inland. I love Mediterranean/Californian plants and I hope more people can appreciate them, drought-tolerant gardening, and the general benefits of plants :))

2023.06.01 03:30 JustineDelarge Recommendation for veterinary internal medicine provider that can scope for laryngeal paralysis in dogs?

My senior dog has some concerning symptoms, and our regular vet did the first step, which was x-raying her chest and throat. The imaging ruled out the first suspicion, and now the vet says we need to take her to an internal medicine specialist who will use an scope and check out what's going on with her larynx. The likely cause is a nerve disorder causing laryngeal paralysis.
My vet gave me a list of internal medicine providers with PETS Referral Center in Berkeley on it. I was very pleased to see this because we already know and trust them for other medical procedures for our dog, but it turns out they no longer have an internal medicine specialist. So that's not an option.
Others on the list are OakVet in Oakland, Sage Concord, Sage Dublin, VCA Walnut Creek, VCA Rohnert Park, VCA San Leandro, Bishop Ranch Vet Center in San Ramon, Pet Emergency and Speciality Care in San Rafael, and UC Davis.
I've looked them up on Yelp, but all of them have about 75% "this is the best place ever" and 25% "they literally murdered my dog, with glee in their dark, dark hearts" reviews, and it's freaking me out.
Have any of you in the SF Bay area had actual specific experience with a dog that has laryngeal paralysis, and a positive experience with a good local internal medicine specialist that can diagnose and treat it? Ideally in the East Bay or North Bay. I have great pet insurance and this dog is my life, so money is no object. I just want someone who is highly skilled in this area of veterinary medicine, and is a decent, kind human being. Any guidance and advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

cGPA: 3.8, sGPA: 3.7
MCAT: 509
Research Experience: 1350+ hours in home institution lab studying alternative RNA splicing in disease where I been involved in 2 projects (projected ~2000 hours), 150+ hours in cancer and hematopoiesis research done through a research course, will be attending a T5 REU this summer for BioE research (projected 400 hours), have received 5 different fellowship/awards through different research programs, will have two honors thesis by time graduation (one for junior, one for senior, currently writing one for neuro)
Research interests:bioengineering (genetic engineering, synthetic biology or TE) and/or neuroscience
Publications/Posters: 3 posters (1 national, 1 state, 1 local), 3 oral presentations (all virtual), 6 abstracts with each of these, will have potentially 2-3 more posters/abstractions/presentations coming by end of year, no publications tho
Clinical Experience: 400+ hours through volunteer program at a branch of hospitals in CA, very hands-on and meaningful work with patients, nurses, CNAs, EMTs and even physicians (not sure if I can include the 100+ hours I did in high school with a diff hospital program?), however this was 2 years ago and I haven’t done anything since
Shadowing: planning on shadowing 2 doctors this summer during REU
Non-Clinical Volunteering: 100+ hours through: science education and outreach with K12 from T1 schools (teaching lab experiments and neuroscience topics with two different clubs respectively in which one of them I am a director of finance), and community service through black pre-med organization
Other Extracurricular Activities: +400 hours in learning assistant program in which I gained a leadership role in training other learning assistants and currently working with professors to expand the program, dance performances in culture club, act as research mentor in research through 2 research society/organizations

2023.06.01 02:58 After_Actuary3283 Retaking a Chem class

I'm feeling all over the place right now and this is a rant and a cry for help. I've been planning on switching my major but for the major I want to change to, a 2.5 average GPA is required for the CHE2ABC series. I got a C in CHE 2A and a C+ in CHE 2B, the only way for me to get a 2.5 GPA for the Chem series is if I get a B+ or higher in CHE 2C. I'm currently taking CHE 2C with Chamberlain and I'm honestly doing the best I've ever done in chemistry grade-wise, but I still want to be able to prepare for the worst - that I don't end with a B+ or higher in the class.
Where would I be supposed to go from there? Would I be allowed to retake any one of the CHE 2 classes? Well, the UC Davis website says "Undergraduate students may only repeat courses in which they received a letter grade of D+ or below, or Not Passed, and I under certain situations (DD Reg A540.F)." Unfortunately, I'm not sure if my wanting to change my major would even fall under certain situations. I tried booking advising appointments to ask about this and they're all full and I'm certain that they would be full until the next year.
Also, an extra factor, the major I'm trying to switch to is one I'm switching to for parent approval. I'm not entirely passionate about it, but who actually likes their major anyways? But part of me is considering quitting STEM altogether because I hate it just a little.
So has anyone been in a similar situation? What should I do? Any advice? I know the logical thing most people will say is to "not stress out and just focus on trying to get the ideal grade and worry about this later" but I physically can't stop thinking about this so I'm already fucked in that aspect. I need answers.

2023.05.31 22:42 Hot-Quality3058 UCSB v.s UCI v.s UCDavis v.s Pepperdine

I am a transfer business major trying to decide where to go. I got into all 4.
UCSB - is for Pre-Economics and Accouting
UCI - I heard its higher ranked? If it went I would have to double major.
UCDavis - is for Economics
Pepperdine - I really like the emphasis to study abroad, especially for business and the fact that they have an actual business school.

What are the pros and cons for the UCs? UCSB is alittle harder because its prebusiness so i have to get admitted into the major. Is Davis better for Econ?

Each of these schools have even pros and cons for me, I would love some insight of any communications students here about your experiences. i.e: has it met your expectations? Was there anything that surprised you? How's the surrounding area? Are you finding ample opportunities?

2023.05.31 21:53 RadioBusiness Research Studies

My son is turning 5 next month and like many posters on this board I find myself wondering if he will ever be conversational. I know every child is different and there is no way to tell at this point what his future is. But wanted to share some interesting studies I have found over the years in case others find them useful
Feel free to share any that you have found

Kennedy Krieger: 50% of ASD children with Severe language delays at 4 became fluent speakers by 8 and 70% became phrase fluent

NIH: First word by 24 months a strong predictor of future language outcomes

UC Davis: Autism severity can greatly change between 3 and 6

NIH: I can't find the study I read before regarding this. But read a longitude study that conlcuded that number of speech sounds (44 in english language) children had was the strongest predictor of future language ability, not number of words in vocabulary

2023.05.31 19:48 jcdenton45 Which fallacies (if any) were on display in this exchange?

Person 1: “Be careful when picking up notes left on your car. Some notes have been found to be laced with drugs.”
Person 2 (Me): Points out that “fentanyl laced notes” are a myth, and shares an article in which a UC Davis Health toxicology expert talks about why it’s a myth.
Person 1: “I never said anything about fentanyl”.
Person 3 (To Me): “You clearly know nothing about fentanyl”.
Regarding Person 1, given that the overwhelming majority (if not all) of the claimed instances of “laced notes” involve (supposedly) fentanyl, it’s at the very least disingenuous for them to say they weren’t talking about fentanyl (and even if they were truly unaware of the alleged drug being fentanyl in such cases, that doesn’t change the fact that the drug in question is indeed fentanyl). But would it be considered a fallacy--generally speaking--for someone to make Claim X which is synonymous with Claim Y, and then when Claim Y is refuted, say they never made Claim Y but only made Claim X?
As for Person 3, I suppose it’s an ad-hominem (as well as a baseless assertion), particularly since they never even bothered to say what I was wrong about (much less how/why) but rather simply attacked my alleged lack of knowledge on the subject. But this also seems to be a specific form which differs from most ad-hominems since I simply provided information from someone who IS an expert on the subject, and yet rather than claiming that the toxicology expert “knows nothing about fentanyl”, they directed that claim towards me instead, even though I never made any claims of my own. So would that be considered a different fallacy than simply an ad-hominem?
