BioPhysics/Public Health? Do I even have a shot?

Can anyone chance me for UCSD?

SAT = 1940 (CR 550 W 710 M 680)
Unweighted GPA = 3.67
(AP Calc B, AP Physics B, AP Bio)

SAT Math 2 = 670
SAT Biology = 650

I know these aren't the best scores but do I even have a chance if I apply to BioPhysics/ Biology/ Chemistry/ or Public Health?

I was originally thinking about applying to the impacted engineering programs but I know I'm not cut out for that.

Is it easier to get in if I apply as a hard science (non impacted) major with my stats?

    I'm not usually much help in determining people's chances of getting in places, but I would like to point out that for UCSD the major you pick does not affect your chances of getting into the university. So apply for whatever major you want. If it's impacted and they don't give you that major they can still admit you to the university and you can try to switch into it later. But what you shouldn't do is not apply for an impacted major that you really want to get into and then try to switch into it because you already blew your biggest chance to get into it in the first place with no repercussions for not getting in.
