What UC's and Cal States can i get in with this info.

<p>I wanted to know what Cal States, UC's and good out of state colleges I can get into. I have a 2.7 GPA, 1790 SAT Score, 29 ACT Score, 1310 SAT Subject Test Score. Also ive passed both APUSH and AP Lang exams and I'm taking 4 more AP Classes next year. </p>

<p>P.S. I know ive messed up in High School and that my GPA is very low but please give honest answers.</p>

<p>With a 2.7 gpa, you are ineligible for UC. As far as Cal States go, you will have priority at your local college. Schools like SLO and SD would be a waste of an app fee.</p>

<p>All UCs require you to have a 3.0 GPA or higher to be able to get in. You could probably get in most CSU's, but no shot at SDSU, SLO. Might have a hard time getting in San Jose, Pomona, Fullerton, Long Beach. If you go the community college route, there are a lot of them who have programs that guarantee admission into most of the UCs if you fulfill all the requirements and get over a 3.0 GPA.</p>

<p>is your GPA weighted or unweighted ?
if 2.7 is unweighted then you have about 80% chance for Merced, 50% for Irvine and 10% for LA. and very good chances for Cal states, specially Ponoma with that high test scores.
if 2.7 is weighted then then your below UC, have about 70% for Fullerton, 50% for SDSU and 20% for long beach and 10% at Ponoma.
Those are my opinion those, base on friends I know that got in schools.</p>

<p>with a 2.7 gpa, its not definate that your ineligible. its a slim chance that you'll get in. but they've accepted below a 3.0 before</p>

<p>UC= none</p>

<p>CSU- all minus;SD, The Polys, LB, Fullerton,SF</p>

<p>Try CSUN,CSEB,CSUB,CSUSM ( nice campus)</p>

<p>^^ It's part of the requirement to have at least a 3.0 GPA for those applying in-state and a 3.4 for OOS. I don't know where you're getting that they've accepted below a 3.0.</p>

<p>Strange but true.
In 2009, Berkeley admitted 31 students with GPA below 3.0. So they claim:</p>

<p>Merced admitted 330. Stats for other UC's:</p>

<p>Actually, you may be able to get in through exams alone. For the different avenues for freshman admission look here:</p>

<p>That's a pretty useful page, especially the links at the left. The UC needs to update the information for the coming admission cycle, but the dates and deadlines for exams should be available soon. You need to pay close attention to the exam deadlines to go that route. And spend the time and effort it takes to maximize the scores.</p>

<p>All in all, the least risky way to go is a combination of GPA, test scores, EC's and essay. But if that's no longer possible, it can't hurt to try the other routes available.</p>

<p>CSU minimum is 2.0. UC is 3.0</p>

<p>Yes, but look at the links. There is, it seems, a way around it. At least until the 2012 admissions cycle. One more year, so act now!</p>

<p>Ahh, I did see the "eligibility through examination alone" page, but I assumed that applicants still needed to meet the GPA requirement.</p>

<p>Is it also possible that the applicants who had less than a 3.0 were ELC?</p>

<p>ELC are those that are in the upper 4% in their high school. If a person was ELC with less than a 3.0 that would mean 96% of the students in a given school have GPAs less than 3.0. So, I don't think it likely. At least I hope it's extremely rare.</p>

<p>Tina:</p>

<p>No, applicants by Testing alone do not need a gpa; indeed, this is how many homeschoolers qualify for UC.</p>

<p>Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying!</p>
