It all depends... are you a resident or non-resident?

I have those same exact stats except my writing score is 10 points lower, my math 2 score is 90 points higher, and my sat is higher. If you're out-of-state, nope. If you're in-state, you have a hopeful chance. Applying to EECS?

I'm in-state and I'm applying to College of Arts and Science to all w/ a biochem major.

Also, my school is a new school yet it is a magnet school. Its API in California is the 2nd highest.

So wat school do you think I have the highest chance of getting into?

By Buc (Buc) on Saturday, February 15, 2003 - 08:10 pm: Edit

Since the UCs weigh a lot on senior schedules, here is mine.

1) AP Chemistry
2) AP Calculus
3) AP Literature
4) AP Biology
5) AP Government
6) French 4

I'm Viet. For mah essay, I wrote about my participation w/ a Buddhist temple and a nursing home.

Thanks y'all for your helpful opinions and advice.

Nice. I'm taking almost all the same classes as you Buc except that I have Human anatomy and linear algebra. If you are in-state, I think that you have a fair chance. Did you apply for the alumni scholarship?
I didn't know that the UCs weighed a lot on your senior schedule.. interesting...
Nevertheless, I think you have a shot considering your essay is good.
To you lol, I think the UCs will not take you too favorably because of tufts syndrome.

By Buc (Buc) on Saturday, February 15, 2003 - 11:56 pm: Edit

Nah, unfortunately, Berkeley sent me an email about it and I forgot to check it out. so I was pissed that I didn't applied for the alumni scholarship. But I just hope I can get in one of the 3 schools.
