could you kindly chance me

<p>I go to one of the, if not the best, public schools in California. This site makes me very nervous, but here I go anyway:</p>

<p>UW GPA: 3.5
W GPA: school district doesn't weight, but I think it's ~3.8
School doesn't rank
SAT I: 2020 (700 writing, 680 math, 640 reading)
SAT II: US History 800, Lit 640
APs: Euro 5, US 5, French, English, Stat (taking these three in upcoming year)
Also took honors English and honors French</p>

<p>EC:
I've been a Girl Scout since first grade. I've received the bronze and silver awards and am wrapping up the final paperwork to receive my gold award.
I did two years of jv swimming. (i'm a horrible horrible athlete)
I'm a member of the school's French club and of JSA (Junior Statesmen of America). I've won regional awards for the French National Contest for the past three years. I've also attended a JSA convention.
I lifeguard at a local swimclub. I put in ~20 hours a week.</p>

<p>Potential majors: Film, creative writing, history. I love film, it's my passion. But I realize it's a competitive field and would like to have something to fall back on.</p>

<p>Schools:
Bard
UC Santa Cruz
Emerson
Evergreen State
Hampshire
Marlboro
NYU
Oberlin
Sarah Lawrence
Vassar</p>

<p>I'm not too hot on most of California's colleges mainly because I've lived here my whole life. It's a great place to live, but I want to be able to get out and experience somewhere/something else!</p>

<p>I totally agree with you about wanting to get out of California! I have lived here my whole life too.
Anyways, your AP's are good, but your SAT scores are a bit low. You don't have many EC's either. Based on your stats, I think most of the schools you listed are matches except NYU and Vassar. Those are both reaches in my opinion.</p>

<p>^ I agree with the above post however I would say that getting into NYU would fall under a "Low Reach/High Match" type. Not as hard to get into (for you) as the previous poster stated. </p>

<p>Good luck</p>

<p>GPA and courseload isn't too bad. You might want to improve your SAT I score just a little bit, but it's still not too bad, pretty decent. You should, however, improve your SAT II Lit. score. EC's are pretty good too. I think most of the schools you listed should be perfect for you!
Chance me please? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/974360-chance-uc-colleges-special-case.html#post1065374697%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/974360-chance-uc-colleges-special-case.html#post1065374697&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Thanks for the input! I'm not sure if I will retake the reasoning test just because I am a very bad tester and was relatively proud of those scores (though a little disappointed with the reading).</p>
