<p>i think you are a lock for all the UCS
northwestern-reach
columbia-reach for everyone</p>

<p>Columbia University - reach, but it's always a crapshoot :/
UCLA - match
UCSD - match
UC Irvine - match
UC Berkeley - match
USC - match</p>

<p>pretty sure u can get into the UC's and USC without any problem.</p>

<p>UChicago & Northwestern are going to be low reaches. :)</p>

<p>place chance back --> <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1165439-please-chance-me-also-can-i-actually-get-into-any-these-aiming-too-high.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1165439-please-chance-me-also-can-i-actually-get-into-any-these-aiming-too-high.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I'd say you are in for sure everywhere except for UChicago and Columbia. As for them, you are more than qualified and deserve admission but they are very competitive. You should be in to all of you're schools due to your well-rounded app and great academics. Good luck</p>

<p>In at the UC's because you've got the numbers! For the other schools you'll need to make your EC's cohesive. No offense, but when I read the "laundry list" it sounds like too much. How could you possibly do all that and do it well? I'm not saying that you didn't but that you need to convince them of some type of passion. Try to pick just a couple of things and show your depth and commitment--you'll need that to set you apart from all the other laundry list kids.</p>

<p>Your stats all seem good and personally I think you are all set for all those schools. You never can be sure with ivies because they are one way or the other, so id be sure to show some major interest in columbia in your statement, tell them how you want to use their help to accomplish your goals and stuff.</p>

<p>Chance back? I'm down in the thread</p>

We'll have an advice forum up and running with current UC Berkeley students such as myself in case you need any help with the application process (even though the deadline is near). Once you are accepted or waitlisted, our group will help in connecting prospective students :)</p>

<p>You should have no trouble getting into all the UCs as well as USC. UChicago and Northwestern and Columbia-low reach</p>
