Ucla Summer Programs For High School Students

Jeremy Said:

What to take to UCLA dorms?

We Answered:

You'd need to contact your program for that type of information. Since you're in a 2 week program, I'd lean towards needing to bring your own linens.

I recommend bringing an alarm clock, desk lamp, surge protector, ethernet cord. If you're bringing your laptop, I recommend getting a desk lock for it to deter thefts.

Depending on where you live at UCLA (namely Hedrick, Dykstra) I'd also recommend bringing a fan. The newer buildings like Hedrick Summit, Rieber Vista/Terrace have AC.

Lee Said:

Chances of acceptance into IVY LEAGUE schools?

We Answered:

OMG I completely envy you right now. I don't even have about half the stuff that you have. You don't need to freak out at all. Honestly, it's like you have excelled in everything. And the comment about sports. You are a well rounded person and dance,soccer, and fencing definetely qualify.

Good Luck in applying!

Joan Said:

What are my chances of getting into a prestigious university?

We Answered:

You're at least a year jumping the gun; too much can happen between now and then that could make everything moot.

Holly Said:

Is Eight Year Med School a possibility for me?

We Answered:

I am not going to be so arrogant as to believe that I come in the top one percent of some of the brightest students in America. Plus, i don't want to have to pay the ridiculous application fees and go through the trouble of writing essays if I know for sure I am well out of reach for Brown, UCLA and Rice.

weighted 4.45 is not top 1%, but it is top 10%, which is pretty much good enough for any state universities, and by state i dont mean like Cal State something i mean like UCs, or U of something (and that something is a State's name).

my advices: you have a incredibly good profile, but how much it
"wows" depends on what colleges you apply to. For example: you would WOW any UCs, meaning they are pretty much going to wish you went there. This include UCB*, UCLA, and UCSD (the top 3). UCB might have a very small chance of rejecting you, but a much higher chance of accepting you, especially because you live in CA, and in the bay area.

Boston College and Rice are both extremely hard colleges to get into but you have good chances of going there, based on what you listed.

I was just wondering if you're from homestead or monta vista it's a wild guess because i live in so-cal.
