    You should be fine with the SAT. However your UC gpa is quite low. I would ask @Gumbymom for the chances of getting in.

    Intended major? Extenuating circumstances for a lower than average GPA? Do you go to a competitive HS? Did you get a supplemental?

    Your excellent SAT score demonstrates you are a capable and competitive applicant. Your GPA will come into question so that is why I am asking the above questions. UC’s tend to be very GPA focused but will review your application as a whole.

    I am posting some UC admit data below. Best of luck
