Heyy, I’m currently a junior in high school and I’m wondering what college scope I should aim for. At the moment I have my sights set on the mid UC’s, specifically San Diego and Irvine. How would this CURRENT profile fare against other applicants? Also, assuming I keep up my current grades, how should I build my ECs?
The field I’m looking to get into is Secondary education in math at the moment.
-Sophmore: AP’s/honors: APWH, Alg2 hon ; 3 on wh exam
GPA: 3.9 unweighted, 4.1 weighted
Assuming in my Junior year I get 2 B’s, my UC GPA will be 4.23 for my sophmore and junior years.
-Junior: AP’s/honors: APCS, APUSH, APCHEM, Precalc hon
-ECs: library organizer once every week, elementary mentor twice a week, taught a summer elementary math class
-plans for future ECs: math tutor at school, forming a club, officer of 1 or 2 clubs (if i get the positions)
-Predicted SAT score: 1900-2000 (taking it in a week)
predicted scores on the sections: 590 CR, 690 Math, 700 Writing
-Have one teacher I can count on for a rec letter
-Class rank: 112/454
-no work experience or awards at the moment
-Planned Senior classes: English, AP physics C, government, AP stats, AP Calc AB, AP Euro
-In addition, recommendations for some good universities out of California would be great.
Thanks for reading!
