hey guys - the sophomore and junior year are extremely important. What happens if you get say, 2 Bs in those years? I am a junior and anticipating a B in my AP spanish class, which will accompany my B in LA in my 10th LA. However, I recieved an A in the second semester of my 10th LA. Does UCB/UCLA take note of the improvement? My rank is not that high, it was originally 12/600 but it will go down now with the B in AP spanish. Basically, my main concern is the fact that I do not have a 4.0 gpa. Do i still have a shot?

okay first of all darkstaro you need to give us more of your stats before we can help you
second of all generally, berkely is very competitive but i am sure if you gpa correlates to that of your peers it shoud be ok
its all relative to the people at your school

from your previous posts it seems that your school is not very competititve so a rank in the 20s is not very impressive unless your URM

no i am not a urm, this is my second post, can you please explain "previous posts"?

there are about 30 or so people at my school who are actually competitive out of the 600 in my class. Although my school is not a good one (nice deduction) the 30 or so people prove to be quite competitve, maybe 10 or so with straight As.

i understand where you are coming from becuase most colleges consider my school very uncompetitive. however this year's class is a bit strong but they dont really have any way of knowing that.

socalstudent you never really answered my question - in regards to UCB/UCLA, how does 2 Bs look? especially in the 2 most important years of hs?

Well, the B in AP Spanish will actually be counted as an "A" when the UC's compute your GPA.
So, I wouldn't worry too much.
