    You are a competitive applicant but you should consider UCLA a Reach school. uC’s do not consider Race/Ethnicity in their admission decisions. UCI looks like a Match school but you need a couple of safeties.

    UCB: 37%
    UCLA: 41%
    UCSD: 70%
    UCSB: 80%
    UCD: 89%
    UCI: 75%
    UCSC: 92%
    UCR: 96%
    UCM: 98%

    UCI: 4.13
    UCD: 4.11
    UCSC: 3.96
    UCR: 3.81
    UCM: 3.71

    2018 Data:
