    Well, I got a D in Organic I, so I have to re-take it next semester.

    But, I'll be transferring to UC Davis or San Diego next fall.

    There is no way to take Organic II in my college (JC).

    Should I take both Organic Chem in UC or take partial in JC and the other in UC?

    i think u should check if it transfers over properly, if o-chemI one does transfer over properly and meets the pre-req for o-chem II then take it at JC if not, then i think u should take both Organic Chems in UC

    Are UCD and UCSD on the quarter system? If you are on the semester system now, I would just wait to take them at whatever school you happen to be in next fall. I wouldn't want to mix semester and quarter classes.

    I don't know if they will let me.
    I probably shouldn't ask this question in this forum; I should have asked the counselor.

    But, do you htink they will let me do that because they want me to transfer with all passing courses?

    I have no idea but if you need to pass that class before you transfer then I guess you will have to retake it. Then I would bet that you will need to take the last two quarters of organic at the UC. You would be repeating some material again.

    Another thing you could do is try to take that last semester at another CC that offers it over the summer and skip it at a UC entirely.
