I am an OOS applicant and i realized that berkeley goes by something called the UC GPA?

I have a 4.0 UW gpa throughout HS, but i have taken 27 semesters worth of credits in my 10th and 11th grade years and my GPA converted to the UC scale is only a 4.29? is that pretty low? because my gpa weighted at my school is arounda 4.7 so the 4.29 doesnt look too good to me.

    You only get credit for eight semesters of 5.0 scale. So your GPA would be much lower. Based on 5 classes per semester sophomore year (no PE added) and six per semester junior year is basically how you calculate. So your GPA is great and near the highest it can be.
