Topher, getting into a UC was a BITCH this year man, you definitely gotta find something else to put on your college app if you wanna have a better chance. I had a lot of friends with some good grades that got rejected from even davis lol.
this is whats suprising, last year it was alot easier to get in UC's and I got into davis with like a 3.6-3.7 gpa...but this year I'm hearing even 3.8+ kids are getting rejected all over
race, financial standing, and extra curriculars play a huuuuuuge part...not being racist or anything but the bar for latino's and black's are pretty low for UC's lol, I have friends who arent very smart who got 1300's on their SAT and they somehow got into UCD
hmm okay lemme put up my "stats" then i guess to see if it'll change my chances.
1790 on SAT
3.8 weighted, 3.72 unweighted GPA
one club (kind of like a volunteering club)
no community service/volunteer work
I know i'm good for CSUs, but it's the UCs i'm worried about. I know i'm not getting into Cal or UCLA with these scores
i thought affirmative action wasn't allowed in California, though?
