<p>SAT Is: 2000
ACT: 38</p>

<p>lets just say I did get those SAT\ACT scores... and my GPA was like that^^ which is what im hoping for.</p>

<p>What are my chances at UCSD, UCLA, UCB, USC, SCU, UCD, NYU</p>

<p>*** is 38 ACT? do you mean 30?</p>

<p>you may need to get actual grades/scores before coming back here. then we can make up something based on more concrete statistics.</p>

<p>I'm going to guess you're viet...right???
USC and NYU will take a look into your freshman year, but what you have up there will get you unless you have horrible freshman grade you will probably get accepted by those schools.
UCB is known to be biased against Asians, even though they claim they don't look at race and probably further deny having a bias... they already have a huge Asian population, so it might be a little of an uphill battle. You have decent credentials, and a great ACT if 38 is you mean 28?
You should get into UCD, but why wouldn't you apply to UCI, UCSB, UCSC?
UCSD is known to be a little picky, I would say you have a good chance, UCLA and UCB are going to be one of you toughest ones to get into...UCLA you have a good chance, and a good chance at UCB too.
SCU I know little about, but I think you'll get in...</p>

<p>jeeez whats with Asians and Tennis?? like 90% of the Asians at my school do Tennis(in or out of school), I'm one of the few who don't...I mean seriously like every asian on her has Tennis on their ECs or something offense.</p>

<p>LOL I ACCIDENTLY READ 38 from 30. My ACT score is 30... no way 38. </p>

<p>What should I do to raise my chances at Colombia, Cornell, Northwestern maybe even an IVY-League School? I am in my junior year so I really don't know what will happen my senior year....I am trying to get into a undergraduate business school... Any of the top 50 in Business weeks "Best 50 Under-grad Business schools" haha</p>

<p>My freshman year wasnt so great.. I got a 3.4 one semester and a 3.6 the other. </p>

<p>I am going to apply to UCI, UCSB, UCSC but I am pretty sure those can be my backups.</p>

<p>Really???? pish! some of those would be EASY for you to get into.</p>

<p>to improve you chances, I would really make some good ECs in what time you have left, and also maintain your grades...
if you haven't already take the SAT again. I would actually look at some Texas Private schools to look into, they're good, less selective and have a name in business...schools like Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, makes the Business week list, and SMU in Dallas, which is a little more selective, as well as Baylor in Waco, Texas...
Schools like A&M and UT Austin are a little more selective, but if you can get into UT Austin, that should be one of your top choices...IT has a great business school (it ranks higher then Berkeley on the business week thing, some say otherwise, but it always manages to make it on the business school lists), it is a college orientated city with lots of young people...
I'm a biased Texan...but it maybe where I might be going....</p>
