<p>Sorry its too vague, I can't remember it all at the top of my head. Thank you for your time.</p>

<p>660 M, Math Major...</p>

<p>you sure about that?</p>

<p>Im not so sure if you would make it to UCSD its a far reach. Gpa and sat is a bit low. You defanitely have a shot at UCSB and UCI which are both also great schools
Good luck :)</p>

<p>thx for the reply guys ! yeaa i just retook the SAT 1. I hope I got higher than 660 :P I was kinda hoping that my EC's would carry me out as well as me being first generation college, in AVID, etc. etc. I know that it's a reach, especially with the 70,000 plus applicants this year :/ oh well, guess i gotta wait a little longer haha</p>

<p>I think you def have a chance at Davis/Irvine/SB. UCSD on the other hand is strictly point system; it's the ONLY UC school that goes by points. The rest are holistic. So basically... whatever extracurricular or "good essays" that you have, won't make a difference. 100% stat based. Just reiterating the facts to you.</p>

<p>You have no chance at UCSD unless you get about 250 more points on your SAT; then it will only be a reach.</p>

<p>Thanks for the comments. I am not sure how well i did on the SAT, i will find out in 2 weeks :/</p>

<p>Will the fact that I am applying as a math major help at all?</p>

<p>^ Honestly I don't think it will. Math majors are pretty common, and UCSD is a point system school nonetheless. Even if you applied to a "Study of the Letter 'c' " major, your chances would still be the same. You have to get into the school first, then from there, you declare your major.</p>

<p>dude let me be honest. SAT doesn't really show how great or knowledgeable about math. For example, I missed 3 problems, no questions omitted and I got a 700 and a friend who took a previous SAT before mine who missed 4,omitted 1 but got a 720. Personally, I think the SAT is just a huge controversy. It has very few questions related to real-life situations and alot of them are just there to &@$! with you.Yes I admit it, I was very irritable about the SATs.But anyways personally man I think your score is fine. Just take these words from a UCSD student.</p>
