Discus: What Are My Chances?: November 2003 Archive: Important Question For All
By Socalstudent (Socalstudent) on Tuesday, November 04, 2003 - 01:50 am: Edit

I have a question: am I competing for college spots at UC's with the students in my own school only or is it more based on the entire applicant pool? Clarification: Does having more smart people at my school hurt my chances if my scores are good but not as good as others at my school?

One way in which going to a smart school hurts you if you are planning on applying to the UC system: the top 4% of each high school senior class is designated ELC (eligibility in local context). These people will get a spot at a UC (which UC is the million dollar question). Harder to be top 4% at a really competitive school. Other than that, I think that admissions are based upon entire applicant pool.
