Can I get into Berkeley with B's?
Hi guys- my dream school is University of California Berkeley. Currently, I have a 4.96 GPA (My school's system for weighted GPA is out of wack) and approximately a 3.91-ish unweighted GPA. I have received B's on Midterms and Finals, and 2 semester grades, but my final grades are A's. I'm a current sophomore, rising junior, taking 3 AP classes: AP computer Science Principles, AP Calculus AB, and AP world History. What do you think my chances of getting into UCB are, based on academics alone? I have not taken my standardized tests yet.4 replies
