Take A Chance Take A Chance Chance (UCs)

I am not currently a senior, so lots of this stuff will be guesses, but will give roughly where I will be at my Senior year.

Upper Middle-Class White Guy, Southern California - Good Public School

UC GPA: 3.45

Upward Trend In Grades

SAT: PSAT (As A Sophomore): 176 - So I am guessing with some prep and a course I can get it around high 1900ish - low 2000ish.

AP's & Honors: 6 Honors (Only 2 are UC weighted honors) & 3 APs completed by end of high school.

SAT II: Guessing Good US History - Average / Slightly Above Average Math 2c

ECs: 1 Year Frosh BBall - 2 Years JV Tennis - 2 Years Varsity Tennis
Church Stuff
(As a total probably a little above average)

Essays: Will Probably be slightly above average.

Teacher Recs: Probably slightly above average.

Volunteering: Probably around 80 hours - Mission trip to Dominican Republic to build house gave me 40 hours.

Well, lots of that is a guess. That's where I will roughly be soon.

Tentatively, I plan to major in business.

What are my chances for UCs, and maybe upper CAL States?

Thanks!
