College Admissions Tools for California Schools

Posted on September 2, 2007. Filed under: Education, North America, Opportunities |

There is a lot of information for students who wish to pursue college, but many do not know where to begin. At least from my experience I did not know, but it was all about trial and error. So I am going to try to make it a little bit easier for all of you. At least for students in California.

  1. In order to go to a 4 year institution you must be a High School graduate or must have passed the General Education Development exam (a.k.a. G.E.D.) Below are the California (CA) H.S. Requirements:

 

California High School Requirements

 

English: 4 years

Social Studies: 1 year of World History, 1 year of US History,1 year of Government/Economics

Math: 2 years

Science: 2 years

Health: ½ year

Applied Technology: 1 year

Physical Education: 2 years

Fine Art or Foreign Language: 1 year

Electives: 65 credits

Citizenship

High School Exit Exam

  1. Private/Public/Community Colleges – Once you finish your H.S. requirements, you look into your options. There are Private Universities and Colleges, State Universities, and Community Colleges. EVERYTHING HAS A DEADLINE!

Website with all Universities/ Colleges: http://www.utexas.edu/world/univ/state/

Website with all Community Colleges: http://www.utexas.edu/world/comcol/state/

    1. Private Institutions are fairly more expensive. Yet, they have fewer people in classes and get that one-on-one attention from the professors.

i. Their deadlines vary.

ii. Most require essays.

iii. Application Fees (some may have application waivers. RULE OF THUMB: the less your family income the more money you may get from the government).

iv. Remember to look into housing.

    1. State Universities (http://www.utexas.edu/world/univ/state/) are more adequate priced. Classes are greater in size, but it is doable.

i. University of California (http://www.ucop.edu/), UC, has 10 universities in their system and admits the top 12.5% of HS graduates. If you have a 3.0 g.p.a. for Fall 2007, meet the A-G requirements (http://www.ucop.edu/a-gGuide/ag/a-g/welcome.html), take the SAT Reasoning or ACT with writing and SAT Subject Test, and complete all for essays, you must be accepted into one of the UC schools. It may not be one of your choices, but you are in, most likely into UC Merced since it just opened in Fall 2006. There is one application that is due between November 1- 30th. There are fee waivers that only waive 4 UC schools.

ii. California State University (http://www.calstate.edu/), CSU, has 23 campuses and admits 33% of HS graduates. You must have a 2.5 g.p.a., meet the A-G requirements (http://www.ucop.edu/a-gGuide/ag/a-g/welcome.html), take the SAT/ACT, there is no essay required, most competitive CSU’s must have applications in between October 1 – November 30, other CSU’s have an open enrollement. They also have a fee waiver for 6 CSU schools.

    1. Community College (http://www.utexas.edu/world/comcol/state/), CC, are usually for students who have a lot going on, did not meet the requirements for other universities, or graduated H.S. and they must begin in a community college in order to transfer into a 4-year institution to finish their last two or three years. There are no standardized tests required, normally they make you take a placement exam for English and math.

  1. Standardized Tests - For those who are going to a 4 year institution you must take standardized tests. These can include the PSAT (practice only), SAT Reasoning, SAT Subject, or ACT.

    1. PSAT (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about.html). Most students can take the Practice SAT beginning 8th – 11th. When they sign up you should ask for a fee waiver, it covers a small portion, but you still need to pay a little something. The PSAT is proctored in October. And in 11th grade you can qualify for a National Merit Scholarship (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about/scholarships.html). The test is 2 hours and 10 minutes and consists of Two 25-minute critical reading sections, Two 25-minute math sections, One 30-minute writing skills section.
    2. SAT Reasoning Test (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/sat/about/SATI.html) measures critical reading, math, and writing. The total possible points are 2400 and it is a 3 hour 45 minutes test. There are up to two fee waivers if you qualify, you can not have more than two.
    3. SAT Subject Test (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/sat/about/SATII.html) you can take three tests, you choose which subject areas you wish to take them in (ex. English, history and social studies, mathematics, science, and languages). Each test normally takes up to one hour. There are up to two fee waivers if you qualify, you can not have more than two.
    4. ACT (http://www.actstudent.org/) measures English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning and is a 3 hours test.

  1. Financial Aid this is probably the most dreaded part of going through the college process. Determining if you can go to an Ivy league school with the Financial Aid they offered. Alas! Information that can help you!

    1. The First Step – FAFSA (http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/). Fill it out online! This is how the government determines if you qualify for Financial Aid. They give you a confirmation and in that confirmation it gives you an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), if you have a zero, then you shouldn’t pay anything from your pocket, but are more likely to get a federal loan. You DO NOT pay for the FAFSA
    2. CSS Profile (https://profileonline.collegeboard.com/) – You may need to fill out a CSS profile for a private school or college. They use this form to generate a more accurate EFC, where they look into Income, Assets, and Equity.
    3. You will receive a Financial Aid Award Letter – it may contain Grants, Scholarships, Government Loans, and/or Private Loans.

i. Grants:

1. Cal Grant (http://www.calgrants.org/index.cfm?navId=12) – FREE money given to students by the state of California. Click the link to see if you are eligible. It is a financial based grant. Max. you can receive is $9807

2. Pell Grant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pell_grant) – FREE money given to a student by the federal government. The maximum a student can receive is $4050

3. SEOG (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FSEOG) – FREE money reserved for students who have financial need. The maximum a student can receive is $4,000.

4. ACG (http://studentaid.ed.gov/PORTALSWebApp/students/english/NewPrograms.jsp) – you must be a US citizen, graduate from H.S. after January 1, 2005, completed a rigorous coursework in H.S. (http://www.ed.gov/admins/finaid/about/ac-smart/state-programs.html), receiving a Pell Grant, enrolled full-time 1st or 2nd year student in a 2 year or 4 year degree program.

5. SMART (http://studentaid.ed.gov/PORTALSWebApp/students/english/NewPrograms.jsp) – you must be a US citizen, receiving a Pell Grant, enrolled as a full-time third or fourth year student in a baccalaureate degree program, 3.0 cumulative g.p.a., currently enrolled in an eligible major in one of the following categories: Computer Science, Engineering, Critical Foreign Languages, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Technology, or Multidisciplinary Studies (http://ifap.ed.gov/dpcletters/attachments/GENO615Attach1.pdf)

ii. Scholarships – this is also FREE money that you must apply for. A good place to look into is FASTWEB (http://www.fastweb.com). Sometimes schools have their own University Scholarship. Check the schools website to see if they have any. And Apply!

iii. Loans:

1. Federal Stafford Loan (http://www.salliemae.com/get_student_loan/find_student_loan/undergrad_student_loan/federal_student_loans/stafford_loans/) - fixed-rate, low interest loans available to undergraduate students attending accredited schools at least half time.

a. Undergraduate Students – first year they get $3,500; second year $4,500, third and fourth year $5,500. Those who are considered independent can get additional loan, first and second year $4,000 and third and fourth $5000.

b. Graduate Students – can get $8,500 in subsidized Stafford loan and $12,000 in unsubsidized Stafford loan.

c. NOTE: subsidized loans do not accrue interest while you are in school. Unsubsidized loans accrue interest while in school. Try to get as much subsidized loan.

2. Perkins Loan (http://www.salliemae.com/get_student_loan/find_student_loan/undergrad_student_loan/federal_student_loans/perkins_loans/perkins_loans.htm) - a low interest (5%) loan for undergraduate and graduate students with “exceptional” financial need. After you graduate and if you work with “at-risk” students or community part of your loan can be forgiven.

3. Private Loan(s) – there are many other alternatives if you do not have the means to pay the rest of that balance. Try to avoid private loans as much as possible. Interests are much higher because they are not regulated by the government and accrue while in school. Let this be your last resource.

Remember talk to your Financial Aid Counselor if your parents separated and it created a financial hardship. Your budget can be increased if you purchase a computer or rent is above what the school calculates it to be.

Gonzales and the D.C. sharks

Posted on September 1, 2007. Filed under: News & Politics, North America, United States |

“Alberto Gonzales is resigning as U.S. attorney general, and here is what critics of all stripes are saying: He was blindly, brainlessly loyal to President Bush, gave atrocious advice, was an incompetent managerial mangler and klutzy in his own self-defense.

His legacy includes a Department of Justice that’s demoralized and in disarray, argue some detractors who also aver his mistakes have been grievous to the point of costing him any hope that history will someday trot to his reputation’s rescue.

If there’s another side to this story — and I think there is — it’s not as if the critics can be easily dismissed. For starters, there was his advice as White House counsel that the executive branch could somehow indefinitely incarcerate American citizens without bringing charges against them. What Constitution did this graduate of Harvard Law School read?”

Daisy Fuentes in “Fitness”

Posted on August 27, 2007. Filed under: Beauty & Fashion, Celebrities & Entertainment, Food & Nutrition, Health/Wellness, North America, United States, Women |

More than ever, Latinas are feeling the pressure to be skinny. Therefore former model and Cuban-born TV personality Daisy Fuentes will lead Fitness magazine in its Mind, Body, Spirit initiative as its superstar. In the September issue of Fitness (which hit newsstands August 14th), Daisy discusses her body confidence, and how to reset the dial on what America calls “beautiful”. She even offers a workout that helps her get ready for a photo shoot. Her interview and her consejos para las Latinas are a breath of fresh air as more and more magazines feature pencil thin models and celebrities.

Your comadre-blogger has hooked you up with excerpt on the interview. :) In the Fitness interviews, Daisy talks about:

  • Celebrity role models: “It takes someone as confident as Jennifer Lopez to turn a body part that’s often considered a flaw into something hot.”
  • Hispanic women’s pressure to feel thin: “There’s a part of you that really wants to embrace your curves, then there’s society saying no one likes curves.”
  • Whether Hispanic body image will change in five years:“I like the multicultural celebration of body image that is going on now. [I’m happy] that we’re all starting to see how beauty shines through no matter what you look like. I’m also a big supporter of charities that boost girls’ self-esteem.”
  • Her own curves: “When I was younger, I used to worry about it all the time. Now I’m know that I’m doing the best I can. I don’t care about the criticism.”
  • Her advice for other women:“Don’t be so hard on yourself. But, if you don’t like something about your body, change it. Eat healthy and work out.”

New Jersey Police will now check immigration status

Posted on August 23, 2007. Filed under: News & Politics, North America, United States |

“After a review driven by three brutal slayings, the state attorney general on Wednesday ordered New Jersey law enforcers to notify federal immigration officials whenever someone arrested for an indictable offense or drunken driving is found to be an illegal immigrant.

Attorney General Anne Milgram reviewed the states policy in light of the execution-style killings Aug. 4 of three Newark college students and the wounding of a fourth victim. One of the six suspects was an illegal immigrant who had been granted bail on child rape and aggravated assault charges without immigration officials being alerted to his existence.”

Cities Ban Ethnic Food Trucks

Posted on July 20, 2007. Filed under: Business, News & Politics, North America, United States |

 

Taco truck owners in New Orleans, Louisiana are accusing local officials of singling out Hispanics after the City passed a law banning certain kinds of mobile food vendors. According to the Boston Globe, local politicians “have long turned a blind eye to whites and blacks peddling shrimp out of pickup trucks and snow cones on the street [but] recently outlawed the rolling Mexican kitchens, calling them an unwelcome reminder of what Hurricane Katrina brought.”

Caribbean Fragrance

Posted on July 20, 2007. Filed under: Beauty & Fashion, North America, The Caribbean |

The Caribbean is infused with delicious scents. And now all those wonderful perfumes are captured in a bottle.

Those with discerning olfactory senses might already know about Miss Marisa, the signature fragrance from L.A. apothecary Ebba. Their island twist on the classic perfume oil comes in the form of Miss Marisa Tropical, which includes delicious notes like mango, coconut, and peach. Let me say this: after applying a few dabs, I wanted to lick my own arm. Yeah, it’s that good.

Frida Kahlo

Posted on July 17, 2007. Filed under: Book, Art, & Culture, North America |

“Frida Kahlo spun her own life into a myth. She was so good at it that her art almost got lost along the way. Her persona, fashioned over almost three decades of self-portraits, fused physical suffering and emotional isolation. Her frank depiction of a womans psychic pain made her a feminist icon. She became a Chicana heroine and an unintended purveyor of Mexican kitsch. She is an emblem of confessional painting at a time when nothing is intimate anymore.

But this year, as Mexico celebrates the centenary of her birth, the largest retrospective ever of her work attempts to look beyond what Mexicans call Fridamania. The result is a rich view of her art and her life, one that broadens the perspective on her career beyond the narrow, cultish view that has at times threatened to obscure her work.”
