Is there a chance in hell that I can get in?

WGPA: 4.14
UGPA: 3.8
WGPA (10-12): 4.35
Strong upward trend, I maintained a 5.0 in 7 AP classes last year. Got a lot of B's freshman year.
My school does not rank


SAT: Reading 730 Writing 750 Math 750 (2230)
SAT II: Lit 710, USH 770
AP: 5s on Psych, Lang, US History, Art History, World History, and Studio Art. A 4 on AP Euro
Extra Curriculars: I'm in an elite art program at my school, I hold a leadership position in it (on the ECEB- like an ASB- for two years and am the student president of the Art department.) My conservatory meets 3 times a week, for two hours. It's a very rigorous program unique to my school. I had two internships throughout high school and a job at a crepe restaurant. I took an econ class, and aced it, at UCSD last summer.

Submitting an arts supplement- I think my portfolio is strong. I won best in class at the county fair, and two silver keys in the scholastic art and writing competition.


My letters of rec, I think, would be very good- I was very close with both of the teachers who wrote them.
I am a good essay writer.


Major: Art History or Economics
White Male
From California (if it helps)
I go to the top public school in San Diego County, and as far as test scores go, we're within I think the top 10 or 20 in the state.


-Thank you!
