biggest advice that might get you in: RETAKE SAT II WRITING!!! Don't worry about SAT I, UC's dont care much for it but I think your SAT II Writing might stop you from getting in. Retake it.

Does Korean count as a third SAT if your Korean? If it does, that means you can get a free 800 which is as much as a 1600 on SAT I. I think Jason's right though, retake writing.

well they require writing, math, and a 3rd so writing has to be there and nothing can overwrite it. As for Korean, if it was your first language, then I dont think they would care much for it.
