<p>WHOOPS! That's my overall GPA. My UC GPA is a 4.21 and unweighted is a 3.8</p>

<p>any opinions?</p>

<p>You do a lot of e.c.'s and your scores are typical for a UC. Usually, if you are from a California high school in the top 3% of your class, you have some sort of upper hand I think. Also make sure you make it evident in your essay why you want to go into Biomedical Engineering especially since you can't see from your EC's that you have a passion for things relating to Bio. (: Good luck!</p>

<p>Plus, shouldn't this be in a different category? That's maybe why you aren't getting many hits.</p>

<p>Yeah I agree, and I feel my essays accomplish that. And yeah, but I want people familiar witht the school to comment on it and let me know how I am doing!</p>

<p>Anyone have experience with this?</p>

<p>i don't know about BME since it is a pretty competitive major to get into, but i say you have a pretty good chance.</p>

<p>you'll make it into SD for sureee though</p>

<p>It looks like you have all the right stuff to get into the program! just keep everything up! your grades and your ECs. I hope you make sure to write a great personal statement. Make sure your personality comes through because your grades and extracurricular activities aren't the only things that define you!</p>
