<p>Yeah you'll get in. Almost exact same scores as me but higher GPA.</p>

<p>Sucks you didn't do a sport though</p>

<p>you have a strong GPA and SAT score.
the biggest advice i can give to prospective UCSD students is to get 200 hours.
honestly, getting 200 service hours is not that hard, and you get a good amount of points for doing so. outta their entire rubric, those points seem like the easiest to get.
get as many point as you can!</p>

<p>You don't need sports, unless you were in a leadership position or won regionals or something..</p>

<p>I would try to do more volunteer hours like UCSD said above...that would REALLY help. Nother thing to do is to become president of another club. You have a lot listed up there so find the one you really like</p>

<p>If I spent four days as a counselor for a sixth grade environmental camp, could I count the entire time there as volunteer hours? It would be around 72 hours total if you count night time.</p>

<p>I think you're in kiddo</p>

<p>You'll probably get in based on how good your SATs and grades are, but I don't think you calculated the UC gpa right because they only accept 8 semesters of weighting between sophomore and junior years. I got in with significantly lower SATs. And for extracurricular you seem to have more than enough. Just make sure to word them right on your app when they ask for explanation</p>

<p>you'll get in</p>

<p>wow dude ur in for sure, freaken niceass ap scores...
maybe with a little more ec's and ull be in for la and berkeley</p>

<p>in. you are in for the other UCs too.</p>

those stats are almost ivy-bound
no sweat, SD should be your backup

<p>University High, huh? :P You're in. Heck your stats will get you into better schools than UCSD.</p>

<p>@ucsdnorcal: i got the uc gpa off of my transcript
@xpenguin: howd you kno i'm from uni high? ahaha</p>

<p>ahh uni high! :D
my cousin went there.</p>

<p>GPA and SAT wise you are solid. but for the extra points you need 200+ hours, and some leadership roles.
but you'll probably get in with just your numbers</p>

<p>@kwandomanium I just figured so from your stats and the fact you're in Irvine xD</p>
