Senior in High School, chance me

Hi I just retook the SAT and found that I got a 1260, my GPA is 3.15 and am planning to apply for an English major. (I live in SoCal)

I know my GPA isin’t the greatest which is my own fault but I was wondering if my SAT score boosts my chances?

    CPP admits by eligibility index and major. Having a higher SAT score can compensate for a lower GPA.
    EI= (3.15 x800) + (1260) so your EI is 3780. Around 3800 or higher is competitive for CPP so you are on the border. Definitely apply and hope for the best. If you are in the local in-service area, you get a boost.
