All UC's require 3 SAT II's and a performing art class too boot (see their a-g requirements online). Dec SAT's are OK according to the application instructions. The cut off for your part of the application procedure is Nov. 30 though. But don't wait till the last day--I heard kids complain last year that trying to apply online was slow, slow, slow near the last couple of days of the application window.

No recommendations--teachers or guidance couselors--acccepted by the UC system. Plus, the bar is higher for out of state applicants.]

Good luck if you apply.

just wondering ...is it possible to obtain special permission from Berk to take SAT II in JAN...?? u see the problem is that the country i live in only holds the DEC date SAT...so if i wanna take it any other date then i have to travel to Austria or Serbia which is really time consuming and expensive!

Ibkid, why don't you give them a call or e-mail? If you're sincere I don't see any reason they'd have a problem with it... they could easily just hold off your folder a bit among the other thousands they need to look at until your scores come in.

Really... u think they will understand?...i'll give it a shot and call them...thanx for the encouragement Voigtrob!
