Chances UCs, USC, Claremont Scripps

<p>Not a glamorous record.. Don't mean to whine but my freshmen year is terrible due to family and unexpected hardships. Too late now! :]</p>

<p>sat 1 - 1200
sat 2 - 620 (math1c), 600 (writing), 800 (chinese)</p>

<p>unweighted - 3.3 (Soph&junior year gpa: 3.67)</p>

<p>I didn't take any AP classes.. Shucks but since my school bases it off of my total GPA, my freshmen year was just way too messed up for them to allow me to enroll in any of the AP cources. Competitive Public school. </p>

<p>E.C: Founder of the school Gay Straight Alliance, Japanese national honor society, participation in Cultural festivals, national recognition of achievement in the Japanese Language, California Art Scholar for two years, Teen arts award winner, District art show champion, Asian for Miracle Marrow matches, Asian pacific Islander for Human rights youth leadership participation. </p>

<p>I know an instructor at USC who will write my recommendation and another admissions board member of California institution of the arts will write one as well.</p>

<p>If you would all be so kind to evaluate my chances at the following schools (applying as an Art major for all of them, with a decent portfolio) :
UC Davis
UC santa barbara
UC irvine
Claremont Pomona
Claremont Scripps
University of British Columbia</p>


<p>You will get into UCSB, UCD, UCI easily. I think you have a good chance at UCSD. UCLA on the other hand will probably be a stretch. My cousin had a 3.8-3.9 at a top private school with 1350s SATs and did not get into either Berkeley or LA. She did get into USC. I think USC is a bit of a stretch. Its average GPA i believe is a 4.1. claremont schools are very difficult to get into. Scripps is easier to get into than Pomona. You will without a doubt get into University of British Columbia which I heard is the most gorgeous school. I think you have a good chance of getting into a number of your schoolo choices. your lack of APs may hurt you in the long run but colleges are so random when it comes to admissions so just work really hard on your essays and show interest in the school! good luck with everything!!</p>

<p>Thank you so much! That was really helpful :]</p>

<p>I'd appreciate more comments, anyone?</p>
