UCLA acceptance with lower classes?

<p>Hey everyone, I'm currently a freshman in high school. Back in middle school I made some boneheaded mistakes and it was too late when I eventually realized what I did wrong. I was placed in lower classes as a freshman. I was wondering how this would affect my chances in applying to UCLA. </p>

<p>These are my current classes:</p>

<p>English Honors 1
World Geography
CPIPS (Integrated Physical Science)
Algebra 1
French 1

<p>My ECs:</p>

<p>Model United Nations Board Member (will be president soon)
Mock Trial Team
Honors Commission
French Club</p>

<p>I received all A's in these classes and a 4.2 GPA. I plan to take a summer math and science class at a local CC to jump ahead and get back on track. I was wondering how my placement in lower classes freshman, and possibly sophomore year, would affect my UC admission chances?</p>

<p>I plan to take this sequence for math and science:</p>

<p>CPIPS > Biology > SUMMER CHEMISTRY > AP Bio > AP Chem
Algebra 1 > Accelerated Geometry > Algebra 2/Trig > SUMMER Precalc > AP Calculus B/C</p>

<p>If I were to do this and get as many A's as possible for the remainder of high school, along with a high SAT score, would I have a competitive chance of getting into UCLA?</p>

<p>Thanks for the help! All advice is appreciated.</p>

<p>Do you go to high school in Southern California? You might go to my school.</p>

<p>I think I know who you are :slight_smile: (Don’t be creeped out)
You can’t fix what happened freshman year, you only have to keep trying. Try your best to maintain straight As. It’s a little bit too early, but keep working hard and you don’t have to worry about SAT for a while.</p>

<p>If you go to FVHS, PM me and we can talk more.</p>

<p>Yes @letjustin I do go to FVHS… I’m a new member here so I can’t PM yet, why don’t you send me one? Thanks</p>

<p>Speaking as somebody who was put in the wrong math level freshman year (Algebra 1 instead of Geometry) it can be rather hard to skip, even when the material is straight forward. Also do you really want to spend your summer taking classes?</p>
