Discus: What Are My Chances?: September 2003 Archive: UC Out of State

How much harder is it to get into UC Berkeley, UCLA, or UCSD if you're not a resident? My concise stats are the following btw:

3.9 Non Weighted GPA (10.6% of class)
4.3 Weighted GPA (5.3% of class)
1360 SAT (retaking) /32 ACT
800 SAT II Chem, 760 SAT II History, Writing & Math TBA
Avg Extracurriculars (nothing esp noteworthy)
Avg Comm Service (Will prob accmulate to 100hr im hoping)
20hr/week job held for over a year

I know my stats aren't that great but what are the chances with that if I was a Cali Resident and if I'm not a cali resident (which I'm not, but my dad (not legal guardian) is resident there.. does that matter at all?).

wow 10.6% have higher than 3.9 UW in your school?

Anyways I think you will get in, unless that rank is not flawed.. If there are like a hundred people with 4.0s.. and fifty with higher weighted gpas than you and they are also applying, I think you will have a problem.

Yea my school's an above-average typical suburban high school. 3 Bs dropped me down by that much. Do you think I can get into all of those three?

I'm 37/397 unweighted and 19/397 weighted, so my percents are slightly better (I calculated my class size to be 349 in above figures). But yes our school is a above average school but theres alot of kids who try really hard and are smart (we have like 10 nms this year I think... and I'm not one fo them)

1. I'm good at Math/Science (although I only got 4 on AP Chem Test)
2. I took the SAT II Chem right after I took AP Chem (It was the June Test Date I think)
3. Basically having knowlege in AP Chem is good, but if you don't its still ok. I got Princeton Review's SAT II Chem book and it is good if you're not looking for a lesson in Chemistry but just a lesson on what the test tests on.
4. Barrons is more thorough and covers chemistry in general, but it takes too long to read and is boring.
5. If you know everything in the chemistry course, your score will vary based on a few questions on the random stuff (like what color blah changes to when reacted with a blah solution).

Good luck. I'm taking IIC and Writing on that date too.
