Chance me?

<p>I am a Junior Asian-American, the first generation in my family, and a self-motivated student determined to get into UCI. :D</p>

<p>I am very curious if I can make it into my dream school for a business major, but yet scared at the same time because I was told getting into Paul Merage School of Business was pretty competitive and I feel like I won't make it in. </p>

Academic GPA: - Weighted: 3.79
- Non-Weighted: 3.63

- Non-Weighted - 3.68</p>

<p>Took the opportunity to take the SAT as I took the SAT classes.
SAT: Reading - 500
Math - 540
Writing - 450
To receive such depressing scores hurts me... </p>

I will not have a sixth period because I am planning on taking a program in which I can take a business class at another school and have the ability to be an intern also.
I am thinking of also joining Mock Trial.</p>

<p>I have been in NHS since my 10th grade year and will stay till my senior.
I am also in the Scholars program at my school since 9th grade.</p>

<p>No sports.
I am working on those community service hours.</p>

<p>Does UCI look at the weighted or non-weighted GPA?
Is there a way for me to improve my SAT scores greatly?
What study materials and such should I use?
How might I be able to improve my chances?</p>

<p>Avg HS gpa for UCI is 3.9! I'd say its a reach for you.</p>

<p>more like 4.0, actually</p>
