First things first:
I'm a junior in the east bay and I am freaking out about college.
From India

Speak 3 Indian languages + Spanish (from school)

GPA: 3.94
Class Rank: 15/447
SAT I: 1690 (660M 530W 500CR) (first time taken, will take 2 more times)

I know you guys will criticize me for not being able to judge with info above so,

lets say I break 2000 on SAT
and 700+ on SAT II Math 2c and Chem by senior year

AP Classes taking this year:

AP English Lang
AP Calculus
AP Biology

Plan to take next year:

AP Chem
AP Phys
AP Ecom
AP Computer Science

Lets say I get 4's on all 3 AP tests

EC's:
-National Honor Society (NHS)
-100+ comm service hours by end of senior year through NHS
-Worked as Graphic/Web Designer for Nexage Inc.
-Varsity Tennis Sophomore year, JV Junior, Quit senior year

I know my scores are poor and EC's not enough, but I'm definately sure they will double by end of senior year. If I can pull this off, do I have a good chance of getting into UC Berkeley?

Thank You

    There's a chance thread stickied.

    Good GPA, weak SAT, somewhat weak ECs. It's a big reach. If you increase your scores, it'd probably still be a reach (though not quite as big), due to your ECs (which don't really distinguish you). Do you have any honors/awards?

    You still have a year to improve, so good luck.

    Thanks kyledavid80!

    Dont really have any awards, but I did get my Varsity Letter in tennis Sophomore year and I hold record (unofficially) as the only sophomore to get an A in Physics

    I know these ^^^ don't really distinguish me much either but I'm working on my EC's.

    Thanks!
