Well shit, I go to Berkeley and I got accepted to USC as well, but denied from UCLA and Stanford. Regardless, those are all top schools so you have to be on your shit. Take as many AP classes as you can, get involved in a bunch of extracurriculars, take the SAT and ACT seriously, and do your best to get all As. A few Bs are okay, but an unweighted 4.0 always looks nice.

Tips on throwing your own house parties? I know to have an excess of alcohol and red cups just in case... But info on getting rid of random people without starting shit? And knowing when to kick people out and shit? Dont want the place to get trashed. Any other tips?

Try to accommodate bitch ass neighbors. I swear whenever a party gets rolled it's always, because some neighbor is salty, because of the noise.
On another note, my school had a decent sized, and priced Obey sale the other day.

Or maybe they're people who are interested in photography and carry around a camera because you never know when you'll see something that you want to snap a picture of.

Sep 16, 2012 @ 07:44

There is no way to get rid of randoms, they're the ones that cause the party to end when they start fighting with the other randoms. But that's probably a urban party type thing depends on where you stay.

how the hell did you manage to put uci and ucr in the same sentence as nyu?? They are completely different schools academically since NYU is about 3x harder to get into than uci and 5x harder than ucr. parties wise, i heard nyu is pretty wack since their campus is so spread out. it's also super expensive and they give out super shitty financial aid so unless your parents are ballin it's not a good option. uci is slowly improving its reputation academically, but it's a pretty boring school in general. if you love asian females and dancing, this is the school for you. if you love diversity and partying hard, not so much. ucr is decent academically and partying wise i hear its alright from other hb members on here that go there. the school itself is in a shitty area where its hot as fuck every day pretty much.

well shit. i read several threads like this saying nyu had under 4.0 gpa

i have about a 3.7-3.8 gpa so far (still senior) and 2030 sat
do you know of any schools i have a chance at (preferably in or near a big city such as LA, chicago)?

besides ucr, sdsu, csulb?

NYU isnt THAT hard to get into. I'd say you need at least 3.7 unweighted and 2000+ on SAT. i visited there, and the campus really isnt that spread out, its actually pretty cool, and located in the dopest part of manhattan (Soho/greenwich village). However, it is expensive as fuck, i think around 55k a year...

All I do is smoke weed and play jazz

you have a chance at ucsd, boston college and boston university, etc. just depends what you want to study in college. when people say below a 4.0 gpa they mean unweighted gpas. I believe you're referring to your weighted gpa (correct me if i'm wrong), which is entirely different.

Does class rank count for anything?
I'm ranked 19 (top 4%) right now with a cumulative GPA of 3.8 and a weighted 4.0 for last year's last semester. My weighted classes last year were Physics Honors, PreCalc Honors, AP English, and AP US History.
I'm taking 4 AP classes this year: AP Lit, AP Calculus, AP Gov, and AP Psych.
SAT score is 1860, but I'm about to take it again in November.

First choice is UCLA, and I know I may be a long shot but it is still my first choice. UCI is my second choice and I'm completely happy with going to Irvine if I get in.

What are my chances looking like right now?

Edit: Rank 19 (top 4%) and cumulative might be more like a 3.7 or 3.8.
Sep 21, 2012 @ 03:38
I'm kinda confused how you have a 3.9 unweighted with that many honors/AP courses and only have a weighted 4.0? Or did you just start taking those courses?

EDIT: Class rank matters to a certain extent, though the percentage you are in is generally more important.

bring that SAT score above 2100 and you'll have a pretty decent chance at UCLA, and above 1900 for UCI
