I know at this point, my decision is already settled, but I’m getting extremely nervous as the UCs are unpredictable each year.
UC GPA: 3.79
SAT: 1500 (790 Math, 710 english)
800 SAT 2 math and 750 Sat 2 physics
So far I’ve gotten into SJSU, CPP, ASU, and waitlisted from Urbana-Champaign
Essays and ECs centered around major.
Thanks in advance!

I have provided an explanation, specifically that I went to high school in a different country for a several months then moved back to California for the remainder of freshman year/beginning of sophomore year. It ended up being difficult due to the fact the curriculum was less challenging in the other country.
