    **Also taking Forensics and Honors English 12 next year.
    Previously took Earth Science and Chemistry.
    I don't know if what classes I took or am taking will make a difference but I have heard that the more you challenge yourself during high school the more likely a college will accept you.

    You do not appear to have a VPA class, which is one of the A-G requirements for UC/CSU eligibility. If you do not have the A-G requirements, you will not be considered for admission. If you do not know what a VPA is, then you need to do some research on the CSU mentor and UC admissions websites. https://secure.csumentor.edu/planning/high_school/subjects.asp

    A-G requirements can be taken in summer, during senior year and at a community college, as long as they are scheduled at the time of application to CSU/UC, so you still have time to research the requirements and get the ones you are missing.

    Good luck!
