***I had to retake the class because colleges don't accept Ds. I was told that my me grade in Semester 2 for precalculus would replace the D. Pretty nice right?

Does Cal Poly or the UC's look at race? Do they look at anything other than grades? Do they look at course rigor? Will the UC's see that I struggled sophomore year(due to fam. issues)?

Thanks, I appreciate any responses.

    CPSLO - High Match
    UCI - High Match
    UCSB - High Match

    You should also apply to Cal Poly Pomona which is a Solid Match for you. California schools are race blind. CSU applications do not look at essays.

    Good luck!
