Chance me please.

<p>Hi guys. I was wondering what my chances were for getting into UCSB.</p>

<p>UC gpa: 3.67</p>

<p>ACT: 32</p>

<p>SAT II: Math 2: 790</p>

<p>US History: 780</p>


<p>100 hours community service</p>

<p>Volunteered as a tutor in an official tutoring program in library</p>

<p>Worked as an intern/manager at a car dealership for over 100 hours</p>

<p>4 years as an officer of a club, 1 year being the VP of said club</p>

<p>Horseback riding</p>

<p>Play guitar</p>

<p>DECA club senior year</p>

<p>Tutoring program in hs for 50 hours</p>

<p>I know my gpa isn't the greatest, but do you guys think that my test scores and ec makeup for it? Thanks for your input!</p>

<p>Hey UCman1. I would say you are a match for UCSB, though definitely not a shoe-in. Your test scores are certainly above average, but your GPA is significantly lower than the 4.1 median for SB. I would assume that your test scores would help to counterbalance the negative impact your GPA may have.</p>

<p>Hmm how about my ECs. Do they also make up for my gpa?</p>

<p>I probably wouldn’t put it under safety school but you have really good chances. I think those test scores will help balance out your GPA. Also, have good essays!</p>

<p>UC’s don’t really look at your ECs. It’s mostly your test scores and GPA.</p>

<p>your SATs are high but your GPA is too low. UCs focus primarily on GPA, evidence is the low SAT averages for all UCs</p>

<p>I know that ill be able to write a really strong essay. Any other opinions? I’m really worries my gpa is gonna break me.</p>
