Chances for UCB and stanford

<p>Hey CC'ers!!!!!! =)</p>

<p>i just finished sophmore year and i wanted to know if i was still in the running (academics alone standpoint) for UCLA, UCB, and Stanford. </p>

<p>i have a 3.6 unweighted, my counseler said that if i get all A's junior and senior year, i might make it up to a 3.87 unweighted. </p>

<p>Four of my classes are AP/Honors, and two are regular( math and sci.)</p>

<p>first two AP's: euro and pysch, 3 on both.</p>

<p>planning on taking six more AP's and i will probably have at least maybe one or even two regular classes for jun. and sen. year. everything else will be AP/honors.</p>

<p>SAT's studying really hard, want at leas a 2300. have 6wks left with a current 2080, tell me if im being realistic or dreaming.</p>

<p>so yeah, i just wanted to know if the academic half of my app would make the cut for the three colleges mentioned above.</p>

<p>I don't know about the other two, but your grades are too low for Stanford. If you pull a 4.0 this year you will be in the running, but it will still be on the low side.</p>

<p>buuuuuuuuuump, come on, anyone...</p>

<p>pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease help=)</p>

<p>Pulling a 2300 if you're practice tests are <2100 seems quite unlikely. But with a 3.8 and a 2200, I think you pass the 'academic barrier' and you go on to the really hard part of subjective analysis. Good luck!</p>

<p>thanks, anyone else</p>


<p>If one simply looks at where you are today (GPA, SAT, AP), I would say that you have NO chance with Stanford, extremely limited chance with UCB, and very limited chance with UCLA, assuming you are from California.</p>

<p>where does a 4.1 UC GPA get you for the UC's( which ones?)</p>

<p>how do i improve my chances for stanford?do i have to have some extradordianry EC? i dont have very many EC's but the majority ones i do have are for about 2-3 years, and some more that.</p>

<p>Honestly, not to crush your dreams, but I don't think you're at all near Stanford qualifications. If I were you I would forget about Stanford altogether. Your grades/test scores are already definitely below the average, and for Stanford you need an extremely unique/personal criteria, which I don't know you have.</p>

<p>Not to crush you're dreams, Stanford isn't for everyone, let alone 4.0/2400 valedictorians.</p>

<p>and even for UCB I would say you have a LOW chance of getting in.</p>

<p>UC Berkeley and UCLA maybe... Stanford is a long shot to be honest.</p>


<p>Well you'd need great ECs/hooks if you you are able to get 2100+ and a 3.8+ to finish out high school. Unfortuantly its a reach and I'm in the same boat :(</p>
