I believe you have a fair shot. I would try to improve SAT to 1400. YOur EC's are ok, but i do think you have a fair shot.

It looks like you're doing pretty well, but those C's are most unfortunate. It looks like you're great in terms of EC's. If you keep up the hard work this year you'll have a shot indeed.

Question: What's your class rank?

By Nyla (Nyla) on Monday, September 01, 2003 - 09:03 pm: Edit

i think its 100 out of 645 but thats cause i went down this past year. i'm not sure about my rank until i get back to school.

i looked over the uc application today. why the hell are there only 5 rows to write down any extra curricular activities you have done????? My school clubs list it self covers up all the 5rows and i have played soccer for 2 different high schoool at different levels and 2 different clubs....how do i manage that????

By Texan (Texan) on Monday, September 01, 2003 - 11:11 pm: Edit

you can always add another sheet...im gonna do that too cuz the rice app has like 6 lines..and i need like 20+ lol

By Nyla (Nyla) on Tuesday, September 02, 2003 - 01:03 am: Edit

don't add another sheet to the uc application. i just went on a tour of ucla and they said the extra paper doesnt get read so its useless. esp. for those folks who put all their info on another sheet and then admission officers think this person didnt do anything b/s they wont get that other paper!! this is so true so dont do it just write small and put ur most important things. if u did more than 5 vital things then u couldnt have put in the same time and effort into all of them...by the way rate my stats! haha

little above average SAT
below average gpa and average sat ii scores
if u carefully look over the ucla profile u will notice that below a 4.0 gpa only 14% people were selected and those who were must surely have had above average sat and sat ii scores. so you have a 50-50 chance of gettin in
u have great ECs though!

btw is there time for me to take the sat in nov or dec if i m applying to the ucs? is it gonna hurt me in anyways if i take it so late?

By Nyla (Nyla) on Wednesday, September 03, 2003 - 01:31 am: Edit

no u can take the SAT in nov and dec but dec. is the last date. thanx for your input! thanks everyone!
