I am looking towards a biology major at a school like UC Irvine, UCSD, or UCLA
My 10-11 GPA is 3.5 (counting this semester)
AP Bio and AP Eng. in Sophmore year, AP Psych and AP Comp Junior year
SAT II- haven't taken it yet
I have done volunteer service at local animal shelter and veterinary office
Received awards for outstanding community achievements
I am taking a Statistics class at the community college this summer, and 4 AP classes next year
What are my chances at these schools?
What else can i do to higher my chances?
I am afraid that my GPA will ruin all chances I have of getting into the colleges I want to.
I am a very dedicated student, but transferring schools and moving really changed things and threw off my sophomore year. My GPA has increased drastically from a 3.17 my first semester as a sophomore to a 4.3 this semester.
And are there other colleges I should be aware of/ aim towards? (to be honest, i don't know of any colleges beyond Pitzer, UOP, and the UC's)
