<p>~Thank you guys so much!</p>

<p>Try to take leadership roles in those EC's. And even if they are considered "weak" they would not be if you were an officer. I'm only in a few EC's but I'm an officer in almost every EC I'm in. I think so far you're definitely on the right track for UCLA and USC. Berkeley and MIT are still definitely reaches, but they are for everyone. Take AP and Honors for the next 2 years and try to get into NHS.</p>

<p>I will keep this in mind, thanks r0k.</p>

<p>edit: oh and I'm an officer in Future Doctors of America, forgot to mention that.</p>

<p>This won't work too well without SAT/ACT scores.</p>

<p>hmmm, good point NewAccount, just curious, what would I need to get on the SAT to score around the UC range?</p>

<p>I would say aim for 2200+ in general for the schools that you listed.</p>

<p>Thanks, I will keep working on that then.</p>

<p>Work on your extracurriculars as well. You are in great shape with your GPA.</p>
