    Your stats are outstanding, especially 36 on the ACT! Your senior course load looks pretty good, as do your ECs, although they could use some improvement. But then again the UCs only ask for your top five ECs, so that's great. It all depends on your personal statements really, work hard on them. Show your passion and be yourself, and ask others to proofread. Don't sound snobbish and don't brag, because (1) your stats are being shown already and (2) the adcom sure wouldn't enjoy having you. And make sure you apply for safety schools, scholarships, etc.; you know the deal. Good luck!

    Which division (Letters and Science, Engineering, Chemistry, Environmental Design, Natural Resources) and major (if Engineering) affects the selectivity that you will encounter applying to Berkeley.

    Of course, you also need to check the net price calculator for affordability.
