Not true. My GF got in there with her grades -- opted for Redlands though -- and my neighbor/good friend goes there...he had like a 3.65 but with unimpressive SATs and only one AP course. They aren't as selective as other UC schools like Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD, or UCSB.
You'll get accepted if you are out of state just as fine as you will in state, but that's because the school wants you to pay the sky high tuition; for that reason I don't recommend a UC school. Too bad, since Zito was a Gaucho here at UCSB for awhile.
Either way, good luck.
I know a lot of people who got denied there with better quaifications than that, I think it's hit or miss sometimes. From my experience it's difficult to get into, but anything is A LOT easier to get into if you're transferring from a JC.
Check out ASU, it's about as good as a lot of your schools and it's not the most difficult. I got into the Broadcast Journalism program with just College Math (not even algebra) and I applied when I was currently taking the class. They will accept you if you're in the process of getting it.
