    For SDSU - Do you live in or around San Diego? Because all SDSU does for applications is your GPA, SAT/ACT scores, and possibly rank although I'm blanking on it right now. I know for sure this year they asked for GPA and SAT/ACT but they don't even look at extracurriculars or anything else. And they reported their average admitted freshman student had a 3.78 GPA. So, I'd work on trying to get a 4.0 this semester because their application period ends November 30.

    I'd say you're fine at all the other schools though.

    First of all, EC's don't count for States. They only look at your GPA and test scores.
    Do you live in the SD area? if you do, you're in for sure.
    If not, i'll say you have a good chance to get int.

    Cal Poly SLO - Low Reach
    CSU Long Beach - Low Reach (depends if you live near LB, if not... you have a high chance to get waitlisted like I did)
    University of Portland (I dont' know, check Princeton Review)
    Sonoma State - Match
    Arizona State - Match
    University of Hawaii (which one?) - Match

    Hope this helped.
