<p>If you want any other info feel free to ask.</p>

<p>you seem about the same applicant as me (i've recieved 3 total B's as well) but your GPA is a bit higher due to 5point courses, so i'd give you the edge and say </p>

<p>probably match for all 3 :D </p>

<p>You're in at all three, and any parent that is an employee of the UC system also gets extra recognition (look at the application checklist carefully!)</p>

<p>I am guessing your Candidate Strength Score would be above the 95 percentile. Your father's connection at UCSD certainly will play favorably in the application</p>

<p>Yeah I noticed that when I was applying and I'm glad I was able to put that down since it seems like they do take it into consideration.</p>

<p>San Diego--in
Los Angeles--match
Berkeley--high match</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks everyone.</p>

<p>In case it matters:</p>

<p>I'm also applying to Davis but I am guaranteed acceptance already through ELC.</p>

<p>san diego-in
ucla-match, although the school can be unpredictable

<p>Great SATs, great GPA, good ECs. With just that, I'd say SD was a match, LA + B were a high match. But your dad being in the UC system, that helps a lot. Match for all! </p>

<p>I chanced everyone who left me a link back...
Sorry if I couldn't help with all your schools since I am unfamiliar with most out of state schools.</p>


<p>Will chance back! Just leave a link</p>

<p>You're definitely in all 3. I'm not sure how the honors stuff works in california, but your GPA is strong, so I'd say you're good.</p>

<p>why u having chacne thread. You in dude!</p>

<p>In everywhere, definitely.
You are soo smart! Your gpa is great! Course load is great. And your SAT score is okay, but pretty in league with the UCs. Otherwise, ECs are very good. There's undeclared life sciences for ucb oh wait that's natural resources haha, right?</p>

<p>Bump in interest of seeing opinions now that Cal's decision is only 10 days away. By the way I got into UCSD and UCLA over the weekend.</p>

<p>Bump again, as always I'll chance back</p>

<p>bump, it wasn't this painful the first time around.</p>

<p>bump, leave a link to yours as well</p>

<p>Wow congrats on UCSD and LA, those are tough. I think you'll be fine for Berkeley, I heard they look more at EC's once you qualify for their gpa and SAT, and your EC's are loaded! Good Luck ! : )</p>

<p>San Diego--in safety for you
Los Angeles--medium match
Berkeley--high match</p>

<p>great stats goood luck!</p>
