Are you Asian (as that apparently gives people trying to get into the UCs an edge, wasn't meaning to be any more racist than the college system)? jk, it looks good to me... they'd be foolish to turn you down. I should hope that would get you into UCSD at least or we're all doomed.

You should be able to get in because you have an excellent SAT score - in the 90th percentile range- plus a great GPA and a decent amount of extracurriculars. Good luck!

I don't think being Asian gives you a leg-up for UC applications. The reasons that there are so many Asians are:

a. UC's don't practice AA. That means no extra help to URMs.
^Actually, I'm not sure about this. I heard it somewhere but am unable to confirm its veracity.
b. California is full of Asians. Seriously, my school is around 65% Asian.
c. Asian parents, on the average, are insane :).

you should get into at least one of the top 3 UCs for sure, maybe NYU it depends
