what's your cumulative GPA?
and you could consider getting recruited for tennis or something</p>

<p>My cumulative GPA is around a 3.6 UW.
I am considering getting recruited, I have contacted some of the coaches and I'll see what happens.</p>

<p>I think you definitely have the stats for these schools, your test scores are awesome, I just think a lack of depth in your EC's may be the make it or break it factor for the Ivies. Make sure your essay and recommendations are amazing.</p>

<p>I don't understand.</p>

<p>Freshman year i really wasn't focussed on school, didn't do my homework etc etc. I just didn't do anything, that's why i had such low grades freshman year.</p>

<p>your scores, legacy, and urm status are good for these schools. you should maybe look into schools that dont consider freshman year? the only school like that that i can think of off the top of my head is stanford but i know there are others.
and if you do get recruited, that would help a tooooooon with getting into schools. you could even be done with the process after the early application round.</p>

<p>You'll probably get at least a half tuition scholarship at USC. You'll most likely get into UCLA and Berkeley.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone :)</p>
