Hi guys! I am applying to UC Berkeley next year and it is my top choice! My other choices include USC, UCLA, NYU, and UCSD.

Since I am freaking out, I will give you EVEYTHING I plan to put on my application.

My unweighted GPA will be 3.75. (<——- for NYU and USC)
My UC GPA however, will be a 4.17(UC Schools only look count 10th and 11th grade for their GPA)

I took the following AP courses:
Computer Science (Not Taken)
Art History 4
European History 5
Human Geography 5
Physics B 5
Calculus AB 5
Biology 5
English Language 5
United States History 5

I am signed up for the follwing in my senior year:

Spanish Language AP
Spanish Literature AP
Physics C AP

My SAT Score was 2280
I took the following subject tests:

ACT 34

My extracurricular activities and leadership activities include:

Senior Planter and Seed Sample collector for Audobon Yes! (an environmental group)
Editor-in-Chief for the Point (school newspaper)
Editor for the paper's opinion section
Intern at Green Life Films (a film group focusing on promoting environmental awareness through the media)
Junior Team Coordinator intern for Tree Radio (a radio station on environmental issues)

I am proficient in English (obviously), Korean, Spanish, and German (I can also understand Dutch and Afrikaans to some extent)

Again, Berkeley is my very very top choice, and I plan to declare my major in
Genetics and Plant Biology (College of Natural Resources) and
Molecular Toxicology (College of Natural Resources) and
Forestry and Natural Resources (College of Natural Resources)

(I will pick two of the above as majors and one of them as a minor; however, Genetics and Plant Biology will remain as a major)

As for other colleges, I will apply in the same field. It’s just that Berkeley is so much more specific in the major I want!

As you can tell, I am a complete tree hugger. :)

My list of more specific questions:
Do you think I can use my tree hugger aspects to my advantage when applying to these majors?
Moreover, do you guys think I have the stuff to get in?
I fear my GPA is too low for Berkeley, will everything else help make up for it?
I am quad-lingual. Does that help as well?

Some extra information:
I am a Korean male living in Los Angeles attending a public school.
I am pretty sure I have my essays under control. :) (I have been hanging out with Narcissus a lot these days) :P
Some of my awards include:
Gold Medal, First Place in Dragon Tae Kwon Do Tournament.
National Honors Society
Audobon Yes! Dedicated Volunteer
Green Films Most Innovative Ideas Award (MIIA)
Winner for various essay contests! :D

Thank you guys very much!

Denny answers:

You have great credentials, but you do not state the most important thing. Are you Korean by ethnic background or by citizenship? If you are a United States citizen and a California resident, you have a great chance of getting into a California public college. If you are a California citizen applying to a New York college or university, since the New York tax payers are paying for those colleges, unless you get picked as a diversity candidate, it is unlikely they will choose you.

More than ever, state colleges and universities will choose children of their tax payers. They have little choice. Budgets at the state level are being cut back, there is less federal money and even loans are being cut back. Fewer students will be accepted and those students are likely to be local, and will need to have their own funding source, like parents.

USC, assuming you mean University of Southern California and not University of South Carolina is not a state of California college, it is a private college. For that reason, although it is much more expensive, the chance of your getting in is much better regardless of your citizenship. USC receives no state funds and has a good endowment.

Three of the schools you list are parts of the same university system. They are UCLA, UC — Berkley, and UCSD. They only accept students with A averages, and pick from the best candidates in the state. If you are not a citizen, this is not your best bet. Given the large population in California who have Asian backgrounds, you would not qualify as a diversity candidate
in California.

Consider what your interests are and try to pick the college or university that has the best program in your area of interest. You seem to be picking schools by prestige and large size which is not a way to get the best education. Additionally, you do not want to need to tell someone in an interview that you want to go to their school because it is the most famous name you could think of. They will not be impressed. Also, be sure that you know enough about the schools not to stereotype them like telling someone at Berkley that you are a tree hugger so they should want you. That is just not a good idea. Respect them for their educational achievements instead.

Denny answers:

The other one’s I didn’t even see while studying government… So… 1. Must be the Magna Carta, though a Bill of rights was injected into the constitution at the end of the constitutional convention… So It may be all of the above, but I know for sure the Magna Carta was involved. Locke’s work was used mostly though.

2. His political philosophies, especially the idea that government needs to be responsive, and responsible to the people, and that the people have the right to abolish government that does not work for them or protect their natural rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
3. Representative Government, which is also known as a Republic, a form of Democracy

4.Gave the colonists the right to set up a government in the form of colonial legislatures

5.British citizens

6.Military victories against the french, mainly, the french and indian war which forced the french to cede a bunch of their holdings to britain, leaving spain the only superpower left other than britain.

7.Declared the colonists no longer had to be under british control, due to locke’s theory that they had eveyr right to overthrow a tyrannical government that did not suit their needs.

8. The british government did not believei n a democracy… The british cut off boston harbor, they also suspended the colonial legislatures, and they sent tripple the troops in response to the petition to king george III

9.No system to regulate commerce, although the national court system absence would also be a good choice… But i’m betting on commerce, since it deals with contracts and the Full Faith and Credit clause is under the commerce clause, as well as the privelages and immunities clause.

10. I would say false, since all states only had one vote, so it didn’t matter that rhode island was a smaller state, population meant nothing. Everyone had equal representation via that one vote.
