Does This List Look Reasonable?

<p>Okay, I've been asking you guys what my chances are at some schools I am considering. Now that I have received your input, I'd like you to see if my final college list is reasonable or not. Thank you :-)</p>

<p>(By the way, I'm a California resident and a Poli Sci or IR major)</p>

<p>Reaches </p>

<p>UC Berkeley
UC Los Angeles
Johns Hopkins
University of Chicago</p>


<p>UC San Diego
University of Southern California
University of Texas</p>


<p>UC Irvine
UC Santa Barbara
UC Riverside</p>

<p>GPA: 3.6 (UW) / 3.82 (UC) / 4.1 (High School) - My UC GPA looks low because the system only gives extra credit for a total of eight honors and AP semesters taken during sophomore and junior years, while I had taken a grand total of 16 semesters.</p>

<p>Class Rank: 30 / 601</p>

<p>SAT I: 690 (M) / 680 (V) - Retook on October 9th. Anticipating a score above 1400. Right now, I know I left one blank on verbal and got atleast two wrong. For math, I left two blank, and got atleast one wrong.</p>

<p>SAT II: 640 Writing / 650 Math IC / 740 US History - Retaking Math and Writing in November. I anticipate scores above 700 for both tests.</p>

<p>AP's: I took European History sophomore year (got a 4 on the test) and took English Language (5), US History (4), Chemistry (4), and Calculus AB (4) during my junior year. This year, I am taking AP Statistics, Biology, Psychology, and English Literature.</p>

<p>Honors Courses: Freshman year, I took Honors Biology and Literature. Sophomore year, I took Honors Chemistry, Pre-Calculus, and World Literature. This year, I am taking Honors American Government, because AP Government was not offered.</p>

<p>EC's: I have been a devoted member of Academic Decathlon, the Computer Club, Chess Club, and the California Scholarship Federation since freshman year. I have been Treasurer for Academic Decathlon and Vice President of Computer Club.</p>

<p>Volunteering: I spent some time this summer at a local convalescent center and created strong relationships with many patients and employees there. Through my experiences there, I have left myself a great deal of things important to me to discuss in my essays.</p>

<p>Come on guys, respond...</p>
