Is UCSD a reach for me?

4.0 weighted GPA, 3.76 unweighted, 4.14 UC GPA

31 ACT Composite

1950 SAT

AP Chem - 4


AP English Language - 4

I would give my personal statement a 7.5/10 right now.

My senior course load will include AP Physics 1, AP English Literature, AP Psych, AP Social Studies (In which AP Gov is first semester and AP Macro is second semester).

I didn't take high school very seriously my freshman and sophomore years, and thus my GPA was pulled down considerably. My junior year I really got my crap together and pulled near straight As, with only a B+ in AP Chem second semester.

In terms of extra curriculars, I have been in my school's theatre department all 4 years, and will be taking a leadership position in that department next year. I have been apart of NHS beginning first semester junior year, as well as CSF since first semester sophomore year. I was apart of ASB during my junior year. I managed the basketball team my freshman year. I participated in an immersion program my junior year in which I lived at my school and spent the entire day out in places like Skid Row helping the homeless or acting as a "big brother" for Shane's inspiration for kids with autism. My big EC is that I have been a professional actor since I was 5 and have been apart of the workforce as well as a member of SAG/AFTRA ever since.
