SAT's are low for Ivies, but I think you have a good shot at the UC's. Retake the SAT II writing however, because UC's weigh SAT II's heavily.

i do plan on retaking the sat II writing. but out of curiosity, does it make a difference that although i got a very low score on the sat II, i got a 5 on the AP test?
