  • Safety (certain admission and affordability)
  • Likely (would be possible, but very unlikely or surprising, for it not to admit or be affordable)
  • Match
  • Reach

Actually I’m not sure which college to apply

purdue,cmu, Cornell, Texas Austin, uiuc, UC schools like Berkeley, etc.

Please tell me the percentage on which school to apply at ED or recommend me one

The UC’s are test blind through the 2025 admission cycle, so your excellent ACT score will not be considered. The UC’s also only consider 10-11th grades for the a-g course requirements in their GPA calculation and will only weight (Honors points) for UC approved Honors courses (CA HS students only), AP/IB or DE (UC Transferable).

UC’s will consider all 3 GPA’s so here is the calculator: GPA Calculator for the University of California – RogerHub

As an International applicant, make sure full pay at $65K/year to attend is affordable to your family since the UC’s offer little to no financial aid.

Thx for the calculator
Do you know anything about EDs? Cuz I need to finalize mine but dont know what would be my fit…

For ED, it should be your top choice school and be affordable. You do not mention your college budget, if you are looking for need-based and/or merit aid which could influence your ED decision.
