Chances at Berkeley and UCLA

<p>What do u think the chances are for a mediocre instate student? </p>

<p>Rank: 39/508
Current GPA: 4.6
Cummulative GPA: 3.50</p>

<p>Current classes (i'm a junior)
Honors english
Advanced Art
AP Spanish
AP Biology
Honors Algebra 3
Psychology ( Junior college)</p>

<p>Extra Curriculars: ... leadership, committee involvement in school board type stuff and the city counsel etc</p>

<p>Other info: i had HORRIBLE freshman year with lots of C's and one D. </p>

<p>Evaluate me!!!! lol</p>

<p>Can't evaluate without knowing SAT I/II's</p>

<p>Cherokeejew is right - hard to evaluate you without your test scores. However, I'd suggest you read through the information at <a href=""&gt;;/a> - it's the UC system admissions web site. It will tell you how the UC's will compute your GPA (They have their own system that will drop those freshman grades) and what type of test scores you should shoot for to be eligible for admittance. Make sure you will have met or exceeded all of the a-g requirements for the UC's as well before you graduate.</p>


<p>Your weighted GPA is well above the standard for admits and your freshman shortcomings won't hurt you at all. Assuming a set of decent SAT I / SAT II scores (1350+/3(700)+), you have a great chance at UCLA and UCB.</p>


<p>Uh... no, my GPA is not well above the standard for UCB. It's a 3.50 currently. Perhaps by the time I'm a senior it will be around a 3.70 or so but that's actually well below the average for UCB. </p>

<p>But then again, the 4.20 they list is the UC calculated GPA which is only sophomore through junior years.</p>


<p>My mistake. I mixed up your current and cumulative GPAs.
I would now consider UCLA/UCB to be slight reaches with your expected 3.70 GPA.</p>
