Dude You are still a SOPHMORE man. You got great SAT scores but why not retake them and break 1500 because it sounds like you can. Since you are a sophmore some advice I have for you is to join something now and keep it until senior year. You do need more EC's. Come back in a year because I think your resume will be longer and even better I bet.

Since you are a resident you will have a good chance at all the UC's.

Stanford, however, is a reach for everyone, so hope for the best.

Yes...Stanford is probably going to be a reach..but are the type of EC's i'm into really good... i mean it's not like i'm helping the poor and not like orchestra and all that other kinda stuff...

Also i am planning to major in Engineering (sometype) and minor in Business...this will affect my chances esp. at CAL right?

Stanford, UCB, UCLA, USC, Caltech. Haha good luck, you're lookin good for pretty much everything, Stanford is of course unpredictable so just try to make everythign better if possible :)
