What major are you applying to?
|By Gregon on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 01:33 am: Edit|
They use a formula like this...
: Unweighted GPA*1000 + SAT 1 + Three SAT II's > 7360
: Automatic acceptance.
: RUN prgmEVALUATEFURTHER
I read that they use that formula somewhere...
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 01:40 am: Edit|
I don't believe they use that anymore.
Last year, some white kid from my school in CA got above 1500 SAT I, 700+ SAT IIs, 3.9something gpa (unweighted), lots of APs, and nat'l merit semifinalist, NHS, and all sorts of stuff.
Guess what? Rejected.

eh...at a conference the admission officers said last year they didn't take ANYONE (unless sports) with a C.

I'm applying to geography but ive heard that any major in the colleges of letters and science is equally hard. But if you have any infomation about that please let me know. Thanks.
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 01:56 am: Edit|
Knowing the guy I was talking about, I'm almost certain that he didn't get a C. Besides, he got into UCLA.
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 01:59 am: Edit|
Well, geography isn't considered an impacted major. I'd say you have about a 60% chance of getting in.
|By BDocta on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:00 am: Edit|
Is that formula for all UC's or just for berkeley?
|By BDocta on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:05 am: Edit|
DO you know if Uc's weight Gpa or Sat's more heavily?
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:09 am: Edit|
I believe they're both weighted pretty evenly. If one is low, the other has to counter it. I suppose that's why they have the eligibility index thingy.
|By Bdocta on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:19 am: Edit|
Thanks, By the way what is the source of your information?
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:23 am: Edit|
Looked in the University of California's "Introducing the University" booklet. (it seems pretty straightforward)
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:24 am: Edit|
Plus I have a lot of friends at Berkeley (my brother goes there).
|By Bdocta on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:26 am: Edit|

Does Berkeley use the top 3 SAT II scores?
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 05:59 pm: Edit|
They use whatever 3 SAT II scores you send them on your application.
|By truth on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 06:24 pm: Edit|
No. You need to have 1 in writing, 1 in math, and one in a third subject. You can't use scores arbitrarily.
|By j on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 06:27 pm: Edit|
Of course--those are the only three you're allowed to send on your application. If you don't follow the instructions of the application, you get rejected.
