<p>Thanks! I'll try to chance back(:</p>

<p>Is the weighted GPA you UC GPA? Nice! I think 4.4-4.5 is the highest UC GPA possible (although I've heard UCLA and Cal don't cap it).I don't "chance", but outside of UC's, your SAT and SAT2's seem below average for some of your schools( i.e. Duke, Stamford, NYU.).They might even call some of those A's into question. Do you have a financial safety.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
