Chances at UC's and Private?! Help Plz

<p>Hi, I'm interested in a lot of colleges right now, I was wondering if you guys could help me out, and tell me what are good safeties/matches/reaches.</p>

<p>I'm interested in Econ, Poli Sci, International Relations</p>

<p>GPA: 3.764 (Unweighted) 3.958 (Weighted)</p>

<p>SAT: 1310 (680M)/(630V)</p>

<p>Class Rank: Unknown, schools still making one out of "tier" system</p>

<p>SAT II: Taking them in 2 weeks</p>

<p>AP/Honors Classes: AP US History, Honors American Lit, AP Art History (last year)
AP Human Geography, AP Calculus (this year)</p>

<p>Classes at Community College: PSYC 300 (A), POLS 301 (A), ECON 302 (A)</p>

<p>Extra Curricular::::</p>

<p>Sophomore Year: FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America)
ASA (Asian Student Association)
CSF (California Scholarship Federation)
Volunteer at Library
FBLA competitions </p>

<pre><code> Junior Year: FBLA (VP), ASA (Secretary), CSF, Library Volunteer, Honor Society.

              Senior Year: FBLA (VP), ASA (Pres), CSF, Library, Honor Society.


<p>FBLA, ASA, CSF, and Honor Society all do a lot of community service, much of which I coordinate in FBLA and ASA. So I didn't just only volunteer for 3 years at the library. =)</p>

<p>Awards: Business Math, Business Law, Bunch of FBLA awards, Golden State, and something about word processing (but is probably useless)</p>

<p>Schools Interested In: ALL the UC's (I got the Guaranteed Accpetance to Riverside for PoliSci, but I don't think I will want to go there)
And some private...NYU, Georgetown :/, I have no idea where I stand really, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.</p>

<p>It looks like you're an excellent applicant for the mid-level UC's. </p>

<p>UCB- reach
UCLA- reach
UCSD- reach/match
UCD- match
UCSB- match
UCI- match
UCSC- safety
UCR- safety
UCM- safety</p>

<p>As far as privates go, I'm not too sure for the non-cali ones. I'd say USC would be a match, and Santa Clara would be a match/safety. Make sure you do well on SAT II's!</p>


<p>UCLA/UCB: Slight Reach
UCSD: Match
UCD/UCSB/UCI: Safe Match
UCSC/UCR/UCM: Safety</p>

<p>I don't know about the UCs, but if you're looking at private schools in California, USC would be a match, Santa Clara would be a match/safety, Pepperdine would be a match, and the University of San Diego (USD) would be a safety.</p>

<p>Cool, thanks guys. :) Does anyone know about NYU and Georgetown University though, b/c I might be applying there as well.</p>


<p>Wow, you guys are being really modest.</p>

<p>UCB- extreme reach
UCLA- very high reach
UCSD- high reach
UCD- match
UCSB- match
UCI- match
UCSC- safety
UCR- safety
UCM- safety</p>

<p>lol, k, thanks. Well, looks like I'm going to UCD. =)</p>
