<p>I don't know anything about UC schools :(</p>

<p>But do I still qualify for the free cookie ? ;)</p>

<h1>Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.693</h1>

<h1>UC Weighted GPA (10-12): 4.333</h1>

<p>Hm, are you sure you calculated the UC GPA correctly?</p>

<p>2100+ SAT, 3.6-3.8 UW GPA
2009 - 35%
2008 - 45%</p>

<p>Those are the admit rates for the last two years. Being from out of state and a good high school may or may not help.</p>


<p>My high school's unweighted GPA system makes it so that only an A+ would qualify as a 4.0. An A would be a 3.8, and an A- would be a 3.6. However the UC System makes it so that both an A- and an A+ would qualify as a 4.0. I have an A-/A average, so that would correlate to a 3.69 unweighted, but a 4.33 UC GPA.</p>


<p>EDIT: My UC unweighted GPA (10-11) would be around 3.86</p>

<p>That helps a lot. GPA will be the most important factor.</p>

<p>haha so anyone have a say on how good or bad my chances are? T_T"</p>

<p>i like your chances</p>

<p>I think you have a solid chance. I don't think you need to retake those SAT subject tests, though.</p>

<p>I think your chances are good!</p>

<p>I always think more ECs wouldn't hurt though (: Good luck dear!</p>

<p>Thanks all! Does anyone else have any input or suggestions for areas which I can improve upon?</p>

<p>i want cookie....</p>

<p>Try for a leadership role in your extracurriculars. I don't know about out of state, but for California schools you get bonus points for going to an underperforming high school.</p>

<p>The cookie was a lie! (Brag points for anyone who gets that reference.)</p>

<p>Match :rolleyes:</p>

<p>Unweighted GPA maybe a little low, but I think everything else makes up for it. Very good chance of making it.</p>

<p>Thanks so much for your input everyone! Greatly appreciate it :P</p>

<p>If anyone else has anything else to add, please feel free to continue~!</p>
