    UCLA: Slight Reach (out of state)

    slightly reach?

    i had the almost identical stats, and im attending orientation session 104 TOMORROW.

    if anything, you have just as much chance as i had

    there is a lot of hope although you been given slightreach, the holistic approach will help your chances a lot... people(including flopsy) gave me reach and slight reach for schools like UCSB and UCSC and I still ended up getting into CAL and UCLA... just keep working hard and you should be fine

    Thanks for your responses guys...i know the out of state thing is my problem but how much could it possibly hurt someones chances from out of state
  • kick53rv3kick53rv3 Registered User Posts: 1,803 Senior Member
    well you need a lot better scores if you are from out of state...
