You'll get into Riverside, Merced, Santa Cruz. Davis, SB and Irvine is pushing it though. Depends on test scores, extracurricular, and essay. You should take precalc again and see if the grade can be replaced or averaged. I had a 3.7 GPA with really good test scores (90 percentile) and I got denied from SB, LA, and Berkley. Granted my year, 2009, was the most competitive college applications ever



Honestly, essays don't matter that much for any of the UCs, and only UCLA and Berkeley actually care about your extracurriculars. I've got a friend who's on the board of admissions at Berkeley, and from what she's told me, a majority of UC applicants are selected based only on their GPA and SAT scores. If you're at or above the scores and GPA they want, you're in. If you fall below, you're out.

yeah imma take pre calc again like online or something. I cud potentially raise my term gpa to a 4.0 if I got a's both semesters. btw i had a friend that graduated in 2009 and she had about the same gpa (3.7-3.8 avg) and got accepted to SB but not Davis. It seems like davis was just really selective in 2009 though cuz I know some ppl that had above that average like 4.0+ range and still didn't get in. So i'm honestly shit confused about the admissions. I'm just concerned that even if i get hella hella good SAT scores then I still won't get accepted into the higher tier UCs.In the lower tier, i've been to Santa Cruz and I wasn't feelin the campus too much, idk bout Riverside and Merced but i've heard riverside really isnt that good of a UC. idk tho.

I'm a first year at UCLA. I had pretty decent test scores and GPA, but I really do think they emphasize extracurricular A LOT more than the other UC's. I got into all UC's (didnt apply to Berkeley however). If you have any question about UCLA, ask away haha.

^I got accepted to DePaul but I'm worried it would be tough w/o the typical college experience & it being a pretty big commuter school when I would be there from out-of-state

OK guys might be right. I applied to 2 schools early action, got into both and got scholarships from both. I think they may have given me the scholarship anyway, but idk. just do early action just in case. youll get it out of the way fast. while my friends bitched about college apps, i stayed raking in acceptance letters coolcool

In general it's probably just better to apply early for the simple fact that you'll get a decision earlier and then be able to relax a little. And colleges only have a certain amount of money set aside for scholarships so if you apply earlier they'll have more money therefore they're gonna be more generous with it.

early action: gets decision faster
early decision: means you're contractually binded to go to that school, thus it increases your chances

early action does not.

will early action increase or decrease your chance in getting into a college?

or will remain neutral?

way above average admitted stats -> increases chances.

around or below average -> decrease.

the decrease in chance is just what i've HEARD. the rationale is that they will just toss your app usually instead of deferring you to regular admissions where you would compete against a less-qualified pool of applicants.

some people say that it's bad to apply early action if your application doesn't stand out cause your average app will be compared with all the overachievers w/ spectacular apps who decided to apply early. this doesnt really follow what happened w/ me though. i got into both EA schools i applied to, but my GPA was definitely below both of their middle 50%. and your chances decrease even if your app goes to the RD pool after getting rejected EA.

Depending on your Uni and course, most places in the UK have study abroad programs.
