By Aliasmatrix (Aliasmatrix) on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 04:21 pm: Edit


I'm currently a junior in a blue ribbon high school. I would really like to go to UC Riverside, Santa Cruz or Santa Barbara. The only problem is that I messed up my freshman and sophemore year(lazy). But this year, I'm taking no AP's but I have close to a 4.0. Next year, I will be taking 2 AP's. Think I can get in?

Weighted GPA: 3.3
SAT I: 610 Math; 510 Verbal;
SAT II: Taking next year.

*Key Club (9th,10th,11th)
*Hospital Service (9th,10th,11th)
*Other space fillers. Not that important.

*English Teacher- San Diego County "Teacher of the year"
*AP Physics teacher
*History Teacher

*Absolutely no problem.
