What are my chances of getting into UCLA ?

Hey guys !

I'm looking to transfer from Concordia College in Bronxville NY to UCLA. I'm really into graphic design and computer science. I don't know my chances of getting into this school because I'm a very optimistic person and have faith in everything I want to accomplish. My GPA for this semester is currently a 3.9 and this is my first semester here. My high school transcript wasn't so great for my first 3 years but my senior year I kicked but with a 94 average. My SATs weren't awesome either, 1420.

I'm really interested in the competitive field of graphic design, which they call digital media. I've been designing since I was 11 and I'm currently 19. I've always been towards to artsy side all of my life. I'm really good in photography as well.

I'm a track athlete and I sing in the choir. I plan on applying to UCLA this month providing my portfolio and other standard material. Would they even consider me with a good essay and portfolio ? =/

    sophomore transfers in general are uncommon. it's much more complicated than a junior-level transfer which is the "standard" transfer student.

    i was planning on going to ucla for the same major and i was told by a UCLA rep that a portfolio is VERRRRRRRRRYYY important for Digital Media Arts transfers. i think has the same weight or even more weight than your GPA.
