<p>ap public policy?</p>

<p>Just so you know, there's an official chances thread that was recently started over here:
<a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=379946%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=379946&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Yeah that made me wonder too. AP Public Policy? :P. If you have a 4.2 UC GPA then you are in the running for Berkeley. Your SATs and Subject scores are fine.</p>

<p>P.S. How was the SAT II Physics test? Which study guide did you use and how did the practice test compare with the real one?</p>

<p>did you superscore your sat?</p>

<p>The UCs will only look at single sitting SAT scores.</p>

<p>By AP Public Policy do you mean the AP US and Comparative Government tests?</p>

<p>By AP public policy I do mean AP US and COmp. Gov, that's just what they call it in my school :o</p>

<p>and that was my SAT in my first sitting, I am going to retake it though...</p>

<p>and for the PHYSics SATII, I used PR...</p>

<p>bump, anyone else????</p>

<p>you have better SAT/sat2s than I had, similiar gpa, a few more APs, better EC's, and I'm typing this from a berkeley dorm room. so, I'm guessing you have a good chance =p</p>

<p>thanks a lot!!!</p>

<p>Glue - were you an instate?</p>

<p>You're a competitive applicant for OOS, so I'd say a good shot. (I won't say reach/match though, because OOS admission is difficult to predict.)</p>

<p>Sorry for the late reply -- but nope, wasn't counted as an instate.</p>

<p>okay thanks then :D:D</p>
