Is it useless to take random CC classes AFTER I have transferred to a UC??

    Last year I transferred to a UC from a California CC. I completed all my pre reqs at the CC and am doing very well in my biochem upper div classes (knock on wood) and have a good amount of ec's.

    I was wondering if it would be pointless if I were to take random, easy online community college classes in order to boost my gpa? I was thinking of maybe taking a bs easy class like personal development, or some easy sociology class. My CC gpa isnt low, but I approximated that my CC gpa will go up by 0.1 if I get A's in 21 units worth of classes (7 classes).

    Is it worth it to take all those useless CC class just to boost my cc gpa? Or should I just focus on maintaining my grades at UC?

    Not worth it. Don't even think about it. We'll see it for what it is and it won't help.

    I would probably be the first to take some alternative stance. But on this, it really isn't worth it. Put that time into research, volunteering, work, or shadowing (or a combination).
