    Accepted to Engineering (Asian Female)

    UC Unweighted GPA: 4.00
    UC Capped Weighted GPA: 4.48
    UC Fully Weighted GPA: 4.28

    SAT: I got a 1530 (770 M, 760 R/W), but that was without the essay. I still sent this score, but I also sent my 1480 (770 M, 710 R/W) with the essay, which I got an 18 on the essay. I think they considered the lower score.
    SAT Subject Tests: 740 M2, 590 Physics (very surprised they accepted me with the 590)

    Pretty strong essays, but I had two major typos in the first sentences of the first essay so I was worried
    Strong ECs (lots of SGA involvement and service, captain for a two time state championship winning varsity sports team, etc.)
    Living with two parents, high income bracket (did not file a FAFSA)

    I'm so happy to be accepted but it wouldn't have been the end of the world if I didn't get in. Remember everything happens for a reason and you will end up exactly where you need to be :smiley: Best of luck to everyone else in their college search!
