My Junior Grades.
Am Lit A/A
Photo1 A/A
Spanish 4H A/A
AP Bio A/A
Pre-Calc H A/A
UC GPA of 4.67 Average 11th

So average UC GPA 10/11 is 3.95 for Un-Capped(Berkeley, UCLA) and 3.875 Capped(All other UC's)
I had a HUGE upward trend, so im sure that helps.

    Are you serious? Is this a sarcastic post? Unless you somehow commit admissions suicide in your personal statements, you can probably consider any UC outside of LA and Cal to be safeties. Chill out, keep performing like you did your junior year, and good luck.

    Your test scores should make up for any problems with your sophomore gpa. You might
    want to address this in your essay - why there is such a difference for that one
    year. By the way, the grades for PE and PHoto will not be counted for the UC GPA. Have you also considered USC? They offer 1/2 tuition scholarship to National Merit Finalists
    (who get admitted). That would put the total cost close to a UC.
