<p>Phew! I know i put a lot but I would appreciate if you guys would take your time to chance me at these schools.</p>

<p>I think you have a good/great chance at all of those schools!</p>

<p>Your GPA, SATs are all in the range for those schools. </p>

<p>There is nothing MAJOR about you that really stands out (kind of 'typical' Asian) - but that's okay, because your stats are definitely good enough for the schools you are applying. Don't worry; you'll be fine!!</p>

<p>Chance Me;

<p>I think you have a good chance at every school you listed (except maybe UCLA which is getting much more competitive). Like lacamotif said, there's nothing MAJOR that stands out about you, but that's okay.</p>

<p>Dude, I'm exactly like you; messed up frosh year, wrote about my Asian upbringing in my essays. Except your scores and gpa are way better than me.</p>

<p>I think you're a match for all the UC schools. UT Austin is a match as well; I'm not too familiar with Northeastern though so I couldn't make a guess there.</p>

<p>Chance me back bro <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1235642-when-i-think-about-you-i-chance-myself.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1235642-when-i-think-about-you-i-chance-myself.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>OP has a better chance at UCLA than UCB.</p>

<p>UC Davis - match/low match
UCI - low match
UCSD - low reach/high match
UCLA - reach
UCB - high reach
Cal SLO - low match</p>

<p>remember that you're applying for a very difficult major.</p>

<p>bump?</p>

<p>need more opinions. thanks guys!</p>

<p>Like the others, I think that all of the UCs but Berkeley and UCLA are matches, Cal Poly too. I'm not too familiar with the other schools though. Good luck!</p>
