Hi, I'm a senior applying to MIT and Caltech. What're my chances of getting accepted to those schools? Also, what're my chances to Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UCSD?
Class rank: 12 out of 751
SAT I: 620 verbal, 750 math
SAT II: taking this october
AMC 12: 100.5
gpa (9-12): 4.63 weighted, 3.69 unweighted
gpa (10-12): 4.54 weighted, 3.54 unweighted
*by the way, does anyone know which gpa (9-12 or 10-12) these schools look at?

Caltech is out of reach for you. I don't think they accept many students with SAT scores below 1400. MIT and Stanford are going to be serious reaches. Cal is a match/reach. UCLA is a match. UCSD is a safety (asuming you are from California)

did u mean berkeley is a match/reach?
also, i have mostly A's, a few B's, (and 2 C's in AP U.S. History my junior yr). how does that affect my chances?

You need to calculate your UC GPA, which only considers 10th and 11th grades, before we can assess your chances at the UCs. Having SAT II scores and indicating whether you are applying for Engineering would also give us a better idea about the UCs. Also, does your high school award 1 bonus point for weighted GPAs? Your weighted GPA is a full point higher than your unweighted GPA, which is impossible using the UC GPA calculation.

those gpas up there are actually (9-11) and (10-11) since i haven't completed my first semester of senior yr yet.
im estimating for SAT IIs:
math 2c: 700-800
im planning to major in mathematics and minor in art; and yes, my school awards +0.2 gpa for every honors/ib/ap class we take after computing the unweighted gpa.
