Hello all, I am a current high school senior in southern California. I go to a competitive, well known public school, and I am a white male. Average yearly income for my family is ~$150,000.
The schools I am going to apply to are:
-Cal Poly Slo(Business Administration)(Also am most likely going to do early decision here since it is my #1)
-University of Washington(Business)
-University of Oregon(Business)
-UCSB(Probably economics since they do not technically offer a business major)
-Also a few safeties like Colorado and Arizona
My statistics are:
GPA: 3.4 UW
(I think my CSU gpa is around 3.48)
-AP classes: APUSH(3), AP GOV(currently taking), AP Statistics(currently taking)
CSU GPA will hurt your chances at UCSB and SLO. SDSU is probably a Match since you have an excellent ACT and your Eligibility index is 1036. Over 1000+ puts you in good standing.
UCSB/SLO: Low Reach
SDSU: Match/High Match
Not sure about the other schools.
Do you have an explanation in regards to the GPA/ACT mismatch. I know you stated that you go do a competitive HS, but to be honest, practically every poster on CC states that same thing.
UCSB- High Match (they are lax with applicants who have a low GPA, but high test scores)
Cal Poly SLO- Low Reach (their formula for admissions does not place much emphasis on test scores)
UW Seattle- High Match
University of Oregon- Match
