    Out of state applicants have a higher acceptance rate however, most do not matriculate due to costs. Is $65K/year affordable with no financial aid?

    I would say a 50/50 chance since Econ is becoming impacted at UCD. Both GPA and SAT are below the averages.

    2018 Freshman admit rates for UC GPA of 3.80-4.19 capped weighted and not major specific: UCD: 41%

    2019 Average capped weighted GPA:
    UCD: 4.13

    2019 Data: 
    25th - 75th percentiles for SAT totals:
    UCD:    1230-1490

    Best of luck and apply widely.
