Do I have a chance of getting into these schools?

<p>I'm trying to get into UC Davis/Irvine/Santa Barbara or SCU</p>

<p>Just finished Junior year, California resident
GPA: Academic (9-12) 3.222, Total (9-12) 3.226, University (10-12) 3.733
I got 2.3 and 2.5 freshie year, but It's been an uptrend ever since then.
2APs, 2Honors, taking 3APs next year
SAT: 2120
ACT: 31
SATIIS: Chinese 760, Math Level 2 710, Lit 690 (retaking b/c I took it without prep, I should get 750+)</p>

<p>ECS (Not a lot):
American Cancer Society
Teacher/Class Assistant at summer camp for 2 summers.</p>

<p>~Trying to get a job right now</p>

<p>I have 2 Teacher Recs, should I get more?
I'm pretty sure I have some good essays planned.</p>

<p>If I can't get into those schools are there other schools I should aim for? Or will I just end up at community college like everyone keeps telling me. :/</p>

<p>what happened in freshmen year? O_0 If you live in SOcal then you may have a higher chance for those schools. UC Irvine is one of the low ranking UCs but it still requires a higher GPA probably 3.5 - 4.0. But there are students that get in with a below 3.0. Statistics say 15 people out of 3,002 people. :( It doesn't hurt to try because you did improve over the years. Maybe also try for UC Riverside. You can always go with Plan B. Take community college an transfer. You could even transfer to a even better school like USC or something. Go For It:)
Get more Recs and take more SAT subject tests. Shoot for 700 and above.</p>
