CC Classes: I took Java programming over the summer between 10th and 11th grade. Also took Intro to Business and Principals of Marketing as dual enrollment.

ECs: - Started a non-profit that brings private tutoring and SAT prep to 6 libraries in my community. (20 staff, over 100 students)

    You are a competitive applicant but you should consider UCLA a Reach school. uC’s do not consider Race/Ethnicity in their admission decisions. UCI looks like a Match school but you need a couple of safeties.
    2018 Freshman admit rates for UC GPA of 4.20 or above capped weighted and not major specific:
    UCB: 37%
    UCLA: 41%
    UCSD: 70%
    UCSB: 80%
    UCD: 89%
    UCI: 75%
    UCSC: 92%
    UCR: 96%
    UCM: 98%

    2018 UC capped weighted GPA averages:

    UCI: 4.13
    UCD: 4.11
    UCSC: 3.96
    UCR: 3.81
    UCM: 3.71

    2018 Data:
    25th - 75th percentiles for SAT:
    UCB: 1360-1540

    Your profile is very interesting, and you have the potential to stand out against the field. How you do plan to approach your essays?

    Georgetown or Tufts perhaps if you’re interested in Political Science?
