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.

Class rank is pretty pointless because of he huge differences in high schools. at my school there are kids without 4.0's who got perfect scores on their SAT's, but there also kids who went to shitty high schools and got 4.0's with questionable SAT/ACT scores. Schools don't seem to give a shit

3.8 unweighted, 4.1 weighted, top 4% in a california high school.
SAT is 1620 (beyond fucking horrible jesus christ)
took AP Euro, AP English (Language), APUSH, AP Bio, AP Micro/Macro, and AP psych.
210 community service hours, 15 hours of work each week,
secretary of california scholarship federation, involved in 4 other clubs, member of adv. dance team for 2 years.


What were your AP scores?
did you take the ACT?
If you can retake the SAT, its bringing you down a lot

USC, UCLA and UCSD are high for you
UCI could be somewhat manageable, but maybe

oh and im saying this as a person who was accepted to usc, ucsd and uci
but waitlisted to ucla -_-


didn't take the ACT, AP Euro was a 3, APUSH was a 4, APLang was a 2, which was ironic cause the whole year i was writing 7s and 8s on my essays. currently taking APBio, APMicro/Macro, and AP Psych

retaking the SAT for the last time in nov, 1620 was my second score. 1550 was my first.
what were your stats?


@Assblaster Slamcock
this is probably super late but you need to get a higher score in the SAT
my school didnt offer many APs but I took as many as I could, so
5- AP Physics, AP Calc, AP English Lit, AP US Gov, AP US History, AP Spanish
As for the ACT, I did not take it since I was pretty lazy
For the SAT I got a 2010 which is decent but probably the reason I did not get into UCLA

Always wanted to study in another continent. And I would prefer America
And I always have been wondering, how much does a good college cost a year?
Since I'm dutch I can't find any straight to the point amounts.

Thanks

a decent college with tuition + room and board will cost you around 20-30k. a really good one will cost anywhere from 30k-50k
November 22, 2012 @ 20:50:37
Ok thanks!
Here in Holland its like 3-5k a year. The diffrence is just insane. Almost nobody could afford that here.

which is why the foreign exchange kids that come to America are all typically big ballers whose parents send them to america just to show how rich they are.

November 22, 2012 @ 21:45:45

I said that the exchange organized by european colleges are way cheaper because you pay european tuitions b. bet the only foreigners you know are the ones that just go to american colleges full time

the netherlands dont have no colleges though, you'd have to apply to a university

@millz college may not be the right word, an education I guess. And which country in Europe HAS colleges?

really dont know, there might be a few but they will be nothing like american colleges though

Scotland has colleges but they are basically a grade down from university. People often use them as stepping stones to get into university.

University is free for Scottish people and can reach up to £10,000 for foreigners.

I have an oral presentation next week and I really don't wanna do the shit. All the people in my group dropped the course and I'm the last man standing. I already have severe anxiety when it comes to speaking in front of groups, I'm gonna embarrass myself

November 22, 2012 @ 23:00:11
^ just realize that no one really fucking cares what you say. do you give a shit about other people's presentations? no...

relax
November 22, 2012 @ 23:20:35
I hear you but my voice shakes, I freeze up etc. It's all bad dude...It would make you uncomfortable to watch

It's normal. In my AP Art History class, my presentations are fucking immaculate. I speak well, and I speak as if I'm talking to one person. In AP Lang though...that is a different story. Trust me bro, what to do is to not let your heart rate get up. If you feel yourself start to shake, rather than embracing it, just stop the shaking.

I feel you, but it's not always that easy. People always tell me to just relax and breath deep, but I can't control my nerves. What's weird is that I used to breeze through presentations back in high school, so I don't know why I'm struggling with it so much now. I'ma try to take a few benzos a couple of hours before the actually presentation to see if that helps.

^ I have the same problem man, but just remember that when your nervous...it just shows that you care.
Be yourself, don't worry about what other people think, because in reality something I noticed about college is that no one really cares.
Knock em dead B, you'll do just fine.
