MSEE chances help plz

<p>So my story is I have BS in EE from UCLA. Overall GPA was just over a 3.0. Major GPA was over a 3.2. I had a significant grade improvement. GPA was down to a 2.7 after fall quarter my 3rd year. I started to study harder. Worked my behind off senior year and averaged a 3.5 while taking 4 or 5 engineering classes every quarter. </p>

<p>No research experience, very mediocre recommendations. </p>

<p>GRE is 800 530 3.5 and retake 800 560 4.0</p>

<p>Please chance me at the UCs for MSEE. Am interested in biomedical engineering too. Is it any easier to get into?</p>

<p>So I just saw the new GRE scoring percentile chart. A perfect Quantitative score is 99th percentile now. Is it a good idea to take the new GRE if I believe I can score above the 94th percentile in Quantitative?</p>
