QUESTION
I am a senior and i have a 3.0 GPA. any chances of getting into a university in California. HELP!?
i scored 1740 on the SATs. i started the first semester of my sophomore year with a 2.2 and have been doing a lot better since then. i’m looking forward to raising it up to a 3.5. if you look at my transcript you will notice i dramatically raised my grade point average every year. WHAT ARE MY CHANCES? maybe a good personal essay?

ANSWER
first of all, it is a very competitive system. usually, universities are very picky about their freshmen entrance. however, i will say you stand a good chance into getting in. if you’ve got a good score on SAT which i think you did and the G.P.A. to prove that you can maintain a good status at the University, I will say you got a chance to get in. yes. universities look at your personal essay and judge you on that too. they have their own criteria but they will take a look at how well you write and if you know how to write by answering their prompt. remember to apply early and not just to one university. good luck.
