<p>Extra Curriculars:</p>

<p>-Martial Arts classes 5 days a week for two hours each class since 6th grade

-Competed in Martial Arts AAU Regionals on multiple occasions</p>

<p>-Model United Nations for 2 years, competed with awards in competitions locally in San Diego and in Berkeley</p>

<p>-(I have no clue if this is valid or not, but I certainly think it makes me a more interesting candidate) Spent 75 days (summer semester) in Alaska as a part of the National Outdoor Leadership School participating in Sea Kayaking, Glacial Mountaineering, and Mountain Backpacking. Earned credit for 16 semester hours accepted by UCB, Columbia University, and others in the following:</p>

<p>2 Hours Biology

4 Hours Leadership Techniques
6 Hours Skills Practicum
2 Hours Risk Assessment</p>

<p>What are my chances at UCSD, UCLA, UCB, NYU, Northwestern, Cornell, Columbia</p>

<p>this looks really good, but shouldn't you have done more languages? well i have no idea im not an admissions alumni. but i guess you only have to wait a week to find out anyhow.</p>

<p>I'm not an expert at chancing people, but I say that you have a great chance at all of your colleges. In at UCSD. I know that college like the back of my hand.</p>

<p>jackiesakura brings up a good point. You appear to have only 1 year of a foreign language. The a-g courses require two years of a foreign language.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Not having all the a-g courses by graduation means that you are ineligible for UC unless you apply for admission by exception.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>or unless you can complete the required courses that you don't have at a local CC.</p>

<p>Given that you do complete the a-g requirements, I'd say:</p>

<p>Berkeley: slight reach (50-50)
UCLA: high match (~60%)
UCSD: safe match - safety (esp. if you get ELC)
NYU: match</p>

<p>And the rest you'd have a good shot at.</p>
