Chance me for UCLA!
Hey. I am a high school senior and I've applied to UCB UCLA UCI UCR. I wanna major in economics. I know there's like no point for me to worry about colleges and stuff since I have already submitted my apps, but I just cannot stop worrying. I immigrated to California in my junior year that's why i didnt really take AP classes and my SAT score is really bad because my native language is not English. The only ap test I took is ap chinese and I got a 5 on it but I really doubt if this looks good in my transcript because my native language is chinese.
junior year schedule:
English 11 CP: B A
US History: A A
Pre-Cal honors (weighed): A A
Chemistry Honors (weighed): B A
Computer (1st semester): A
Health (2nd semester): A
AP Chinese (unweighed): A A
senior year schedule:
English 12 CP : A -
AP Chem: A -
AP Stats: A -
AP Cal AB: A -
Physics Honors: A -
Regular Government(1st semester): A
Regular economics: 2nd semester
I don't wanna take ap economics (even though I wanna major in econ) because if I take it, I have to take AP Government, this is like a rule in my school. I really doubt if I can handle ap gov because people told me that you have to write many essays and read a lot.
SAT 1: 1600
SAT 2: chem 730 math 2: 770
President of Japanese Club ( in the school of my home country though, I don't know if they count it or not)
Participated in several competitions in my home country ( math contest and a science thing)
Recycling Team member ( high school in America)
Service Hours : 106 ( volunteer at a senior center in America)
Essay: I think it's decent, its mainly about how my home country roots my interest, the obstacles I faced (people make fun of my accent and the language barrier) and how I overcome the obstacles (read more English books and make friends with native born American).
please help me and sorry for my bad grammar
