3.58 is not low. It's an A/B average, meaning you are superior and above average in all of your subjects. Don't be afraid of grade inflation, and certainly don't think it's low because of the people on this forum, who are either freakishly smart or lying their arses off about their stats. :)


You'll have a decent chance at those schools. UCSD, I think would be the hardest of the three to get into. Write the best damn essay you've ever written in your life; by that, I mean don't save it until before the day it's due.

I think your chances are as good as any. What is your unweighted GPA? As long as the rest of your app is solid, you have a good chance and good luck.

Woohoo! GSA! My school just got a GSA. Victory for liberals everywhere. Arrh!

You sound good for those UC schools. You should find out your UC GPA. They do calculate it differently, don't they?

And yeah, many of the people on these forums lie their asses off. It's kind of sad.

Weeell, for my school it's Gay Straight Alliance. I'm assuming it's the same for Judy16's school... maybe not though. The only thing I don't like about it is at times the homosexual contingency of the club kind of gets in a "boohoo, we're gay and people hate us for it" mope and that gets old fast, real fast. But it's generally a good thing as the club gets out awareness and goes to anti anti-gay rallies. Ahh, it's great being an Eagle Scout supporting an anti-Boy Scout rally. That sends a funky message... but I digress. Anyway, yeah, it stands for Gay Straight Alliance where I'm from.

it is Gay and Straight Alliance.. itz a pretty new club i dont think we get ppl that "boohoo" haha but yeahh...
