I think you have a great chance of getting into all of them. The only bad thing is your sat score and sat II writing score. I think you still have a great chance though. LOL i would pick UCSB because it's a party school. I heard UCI and UCR are kinda boring. I dont know much about CSU but it's a state school so you have a good chance

I'm from Cali. Dude, you make the index, you have an ELC number, you have a decent GPA, and your SAT is not bad. Come on, being from Cali. you should know that you will get into all of those schools.

UCR - no problem
UCI - no problem
UCSB - not hard to get into, but it's more selective than UCR and UCI
CSU Long Beach - They'll beg you to go to their school.

Isaman, I don't have an ELC number and the reason why I posted this is because I found a 2003 admissoin data for the UC and it showed pretty high scores. The data started from like page 44.

What is the "UC GPA"?

Do they calculate for you if your school doesn't?

By Caparanoia (Caparanoia) on Sunday, January 04, 2004 - 05:42 pm: Edit

UC GPA is GPA based on 10/11th grade on certain courses the UC approves. You can calculate it very easily. Just be careful that the UC only counts up to 8 semesters of honors/AP courses.
