In state, I'm guessing? I'd say you have a good chance. 1300 is the avg. score for UC Berk. And they care A LOT about gpa. Hey--why not Stanford? I don't think you're dreaming at all about the UCs. If you're in-state, from the people I've seen get into these schools, you're in for sure. My second cousin(we're East Indian, so similar ethnic background; he's a he) got into Berkeley with a 1300, 4.0ish, BAD ECs compared to you, blah, blah. Hey what is your rank? Berkeley loves summa cum laudes...

I had a 1330, about the same SAT II's, same GPA/grades, bit less EC's and got rejeceted from UCLA and UCB and got into UCD, if that helps.

Raise your SAT scores a bit....everything else looks great. You fall in the median range....better to be a little bit above. Get up to 1350 or 1360.... =) You should be fine then....

Good luck! And hope to see you at UCB during the next few years!

Good Luck with eveything.

UCLA - For sure
UCB - wildcard

Work on your SAT score and if you are local forge a bond with Berkeley's inner circle. This worked for someone I know.
