Chance me for UC safeties and LACs?
I'm a California resident and my major would probably be English with a minor in poli sci or history, so it would be cool if you helped me pick which UCs were best for that and chanced me too! So out of UCSB, UCI, UCD, and UCSC, which two would be the best safeties for me (I've already got some other colleges on my list and I don't want to apply to too many).
Also, would Pitzer, Occidental and Reed be reaches for me? Those are the top three LACs I'm looking into and from what I've gathered, Pitzer has gotten a lot more selective and I'm worried my GPA is a bit low for these three. Thank you for very much in advance!
