<p>Thanks for your time guys</p>

<p>I forgot to add that I want to major in Computer Science, the granddaddy of all impacted majors. Yup that's it, appreciate the help</p>

<p>I think that berkeley would be a match for you in easier majors, but computer science makes it a reach</p>

<p>anything you could suggest to improve my chances?
Is it only a reach for EECS or also for a BA?</p>

<p>I also forgot to include I helped develop a lesson plan for the new web design class, if that does anything at all. </p>

<p>Whenever it comes to remembering what I've done, it's like I get a fleeting case of alzheimers.</p>

<p>you are in.</p>

<p>very good chance</p>

<p>Don't be too sure, those impacted fields are very very competitive.</p>

<p>-mean SAT score of admitted berkeley applicants is 1340 according to the new statistics. you have 1370</p>

<p>-mean GPA is 4.15. you have 4.17</p>

<p>-Only 25% or so got admitted with a writing score less than 700</p>

<p>-you're not in ELC</p>

<p>-plus hard major. i suggest not to be so optimistic. I would predict a 30% admission possibility.</p>

<p>what you can do:
-take the SATs in december. i would recommend the SAT IIs because they are worth more in UCs.</p>

<p>-kick-ass essay</p>

<p>-major change? you might like something else...</p>

<p>Thanks, I'm redoing the SAT II's anyways and I retook the ACT's and am praying. As far as the essay is concerned, I'm pretty optimistic there. </p>

<p>Also, would it be easier to get a B.A. in the college of letters and science? If so, is there any drawback to the B.A. instead of the B.S.?</p>

<p>yeah right now you have a low chance... I seem to remeber that the Computer Science program was very hard to get into at berkley.</p>
