Nevada student looking towards going to UBC
Hi I am just finished with my junior year in high school and I am looking towards my university choices. I am strongly leaning to go to UBC in Vancouver. My projected unweighted GPA is going to be a 3.93 and a weighted GPA of 4.3 after finishing my first semester of my grade 12 senior year, which I will be self-reporting my grades to universities with. I plan to go into the Faculty of Science to major in Biology. I have already taken Biology and Chemistry as well as Geographic Science my other years of high school. The classes I will be taking my grade 12 year will be English 12, Pre-Calculus AB Honors, Physics, Anatomy Honors, and US Government Honors. This will fulfill the requirements for American curriculum students for the Faculty of Science that states on UBC's website. I have taken the SAT and just got my score last week and it is a 1260/1600, this is the first time I have taken the SAT. Should I retake it to get a better score? I also have taken the ACT once this year and got a 22 on it and an 8 on the writing portion. Should I be worried to retake it as well? My ECs are lacking right now but I plan to volunteer at a local hospital this summer for 300 hours or more hopefully. What are my chances at getting into Science at UBC Vancouver? Thanks.
