Chance me please! Will one bad grade hurt me?

<p>So, here's my stats:</p>

<p>btw my school has no honors classes, and only allows 1 ap soph year and 3 in junior and senior year each</p>

<p>9th grade
spanish 1 - A/A

physics - B/A
pe - A/A
english - A/A
intro to comp. sci - A/A</p>

<p>10th grade
spanish 2 - A/A
ap calc ab - C/A

<p>11th (only been through 1 sem.)
spanish 3 - A

us his. - A
ap comp. sci - A</p>

<p>Projected 12th grade courses
ap calc bs
either ap chem, bio or physics

<p>My school has very little resources and I dont have much course choices. I'm really worried about the c i got in sophomore year!</p>

<p>Ap test scores - I've only taken one. Ap calc ab, I got a 5 on it. I probably will get 5 or 4 for the ones I'm going to take this May.</p>

<p>Sat score - 2230 (should I retake to get higher?)</p>

<p>Extra curriculars:
speech and debate(secratary)
science and tech club (vp)
badminton club and team (varsity for 2 years)
Volunteer at food and clothing help shelter (about 100 hours)
Key club (9th grade)

<p>I am female and asian from nepal.
I live in California.
2nd gen college student.</p>

<p>I really want to go to uc berkely for chemical engineering!
Will anyone please chance me for any schools that would be a good
match for me ! Thanks for any replies!</p>

<p>Female going into engineering with your stats I think you are high match. Only problem could be that you are in state. Spread your net.</p>

<p>Really? I thought if you were in state you had a higher chance. Other college I had in mind are Cal Institue of tech and stanford (very low chance probably), University of texas austin, uc santa barbara, and u of michigan minneopolis.</p>

<p>I don’t think it will affect you too much. You took AP Calc AB as a sophomore (pretty advanced), you recovered with an A second semester, and you got a 5 on the AP exam, so I wouldn’t worry about it. The rest of your grades are good, too.</p>

<p>I think you chances are pretty good, but engineering at UCB is pretty competitive, so you never know.</p>

<p>It’s hard to chance you for “any schools that would be a match.” It would only really be helpful if you posted a few schools, or at least describe some characteristics you are looking for in schools so others could give you suggestions. By definition, your chances would be good at a match school, but not guaranteed. You stats would fall right into the average accepted range. Lol.</p>

<p>@fatherofm, how is being in-state a problem? If anything, it is easier to get admitted as an in-state student than an OOS student…</p>

<p>Thanks for the replys.</p>
