My chances at UCs??

<p>UC GPA= 3.6
SAT I= 1330
SAT II= 780(Math IIC), 760(Writing), 700(Physics)</p>

<p>Currently taking 4 APs. Very rigorous couseload with numerous AP/H Courses by graduation.</p>

<p>Applying To:

<p>Do you think my SATs make up for my low GPA? Anyone??</p>

<p>If you're white or Asian - No.</p>

<p>I would hardly call 4 APs rigorous. Maybe you should try some Cal States, they'll love you.</p>

<p>Great SAT II's. Low gpa hurts...I'd like to have EC's to make a better determination, though.</p>

UCLA- Reach
UCD- Match
UCSB- Match
UCSD- Match-Reach
UCI- Match</p>

<p>And I'm a CA resident. Anyone else?? Please.</p>

<p>your SATs are high. gpa could be better but if you have good essays and EC's, then i think you'll have a good chance for almost any UC. from my school at least, berkeley accepts kids who just have really high scores and maybe not that great of ECs. UCLA accepts kids who don't necessarily have the highest scores, but are well rounded with their EC's. good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks for the info. Anyone else??</p>

<p>I think your in at UCD, UCI and UCSB or atleast you will get in one of them.
UCB and UCLA are reaches depending on what you are majoring. Engineering- reach, biology- reach.</p>


<p>UCLA: Slight Reach
UCB: Slight Reach
UCSD: Match
UCD: Safe Match
UCSB: Safe Match
UCI: Safe Match</p>

<p>Thanks flopsy. You really think Santa Barbara, Davis, and Irvine are "safe matches"?</p>

<p>Bump. Anyone else? Please...</p>

<p>Am I correct that UCs double your SAT II scores? I think I heard that somewhere...</p>

<p>What you might be thinking of is the eligibility calculation. There are many ways to be eligible as a CA resident. In one way you have to have a certain gpa and a certain SAT scores (the higher your gpa, the lower you sat's can be, etc). So for this they take your SAT I score and add that to 2 times each SAT II. So the maximum possible is 1600 + 2 * (800+800+800).</p>

<p>Ya, I know they do for eligibility. But I also thought they doubled them for admission... I could be wrong though. </p>

<p>Anyone else on my chances??</p>

<p>Bump... Please!</p>

<p>tsunami...why are u so harsh on everyone? 4 aps is a good amount, did u say that u had a 3.0, a 3.6 is much better than ur gpa</p>

<p>Thanx MTB, lol...</p>

<p>Sorry, I'm just being realistic. Competetive times. Anyway, I had a 3.33 GPA, but I had other things going for me. Sure 4.0 os a good GPA, but everyone has it these days, people got to be OG to get into selective universities</p>

<p>Note: OG means Original Gangster for those of you not familiar with the lingo. I'm trying to be multicultural. :P</p>

<p>What school are you at Tsunami?</p>

<p>I don't think I should release that information on such a public message board. :P Give me your AIM screen name and I will tell you personally if you need to know.</p>
