I am posting this here for Bravofleet. The resume follows.
Thanks ahead to anyone who replies to my post.
(also applying to UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and UC Riverside)
Cumulative GPA (10-11th grade)
4.66 (UC weighted)
750 Math 720 Verbal
740 MATH IIC 720 WRITING 700 US History
Current Class Schedule:
1. Physics-AP, US Government-AP, Macroeconomics-AP, AP Statistics, AP Calculus BC, and AP Literature and Composition
CSF (California Scholarship Federation)
NHS (National Honor Society)
100+ hours of community service
Note* I'd have to say my weakest area is my EC's. I belong to several clubs and I did participate but I wasn't that active (at least be a "super member") or hold an officer position in any of them. I also never participated in any sports or play in band or orchestra. Worst of all, I completely regret not having dedicated my community service hours to a particular cause or show a strong interest in anything. And I was never employed.
I really focused my efforts on my GPA and my coursework but I just never did much about my EC's. Nobody told me that 100+ hour wasn't enough to impress even the most remedial colleges! I've heard that the UC system is mostly a number games and I'm praying this is true.
