    UC GPA? https://rogerhub.com/gpa-calculator-uc/

    UCSB/UCD and UCI use the Capped Weighted UC GPA. UCLA/UCB use both Capped Weighted and Fully Weighted.

    EC's? Any related to CS?

    I want to pursue Computer Science, since it is highly impacted, is it worthwhile to choose adjacent major like Electrical engineering so that I have better chance for admission?
    Does major selection play important role within engineering school admission?

    With a 4.0, your GPA is a little light for the mid-tier UCs. I'd apply - but also apply to UCR, UCSC - both of which have excellent CS programs. SDSU, CPP and, perhaps CP SLO are also worth a shot.
