    ACT scores are too low. I think you should try SAT. Do you have SAT subject tests results?
    BTW, are you from CA?

    Your GPA is fine but Shirley is right--your ACT is a little on the low side. If you have good SAT subject scores, it may increase your chances.

    I'd say if you get in, you will probably be admitted second choice or undeclared as well.

    recently, computer science has become an impacted major. it may be more competitive to get in with the major that you want.

    My older son applied last year for Environmental Analysis with a 4.12 weighted GPA and ACT of 25. He was denied and his major was not impacted. I give you a 25% chance. Now his younger brother has applied for Fall 2014 with a UC GPA (w) 3.73 and ACT 31 for Computer Science. I only give him a 25% chance for acceptance also. He has several backups just in case.
