    What do you consider top schools?

    UC’s and CSU’s do not consider race/ethnicity in their admission decisions. Are you are recruited athlete?

    You have some great EC’s, competitive GPA and if you get your SAT score in the 1400+ range, you will have several UC’s to consider.

    2018 Freshman admit rates for UC GPA of 3.80-4.19 capped weighted and not major specific:
    UCB: 10%
    UCLA: 9%
    UCSD: 34%
    UCSB: 38%
    UCD: 41%
    UCI: 38%
    UCSC: 70%
    UCR: 84%
    UCM: 95%

    2018 UC capped weighted GPA averages:
    UCB: 4.23
    UCLA: 4.23
    UCSD: 4.16
    UCSB: 4.13
    UCI: 4.13
    UCD: 4.11
    UCSC: 3.96
    UCR: 3.81
    UCM: 3.71

    2018 Data:
    25th - 75th percentiles for SAT:
    UCB: 1360-1540
    UCLA: 1340-1540
    UCSD: 1300-1520
    UCSB: 1270-1500
    UCD: 1220-1480
    UCI: 1230-1490
    UCSC: 1210-1450
    UCR: 1130-1380
    UCM: 1020-1280

    I’m considering all UCs, and John Hopkins, UPenn, Cornell, and Columbia.

    Besides admissions, have you talked to your parents about what they will contribute for your college costs and run the net price calculators on the web sites of colleges of interest?
