    You have good EC's. For the UC's, EC's are considered important and they can set up apart from many of the qualified applicants that apply, but GPA, test scores, HS course rigor and essays are considered very important.

    A part time job is an excellent EC. It does not have to major related unless you plan to apply to a 0-6 direct admit Pharmacy program.

    UC's emphasize academics over EC's. Do things that interest you and not just because you think it looks good for a college.
    GPA/test scores/HS course rigor and essays are considered very important to the UC's.

    that is plenty but, as @gumbymom notes above GPA, course rigor and test scores matter most to UCs - so, those activities won't make up for a sub par GPA. .
