UC Campuses

I haven't done so well in SAT, 1250 only. My IB predicted score is 39 including 6 from math HL, 7 English HL, 6 Chemistry HL. I'm applying to UCSD, UCLA, UCSB, and USC. Are my admission chances still good?

Your predicted score for IB is good enough to be competitive at all those schools. I'm unfamiliar with the SAT's scoring method as when I took it, it was different, but I'd say that you'd want to be in at least the 80th percentile (sorry I don't know what that would be as a score). Anything lower might hurt your chances, but chin up because you still have essays to really boost yourself as a candidate. It's hard to comment on your chances as it's hard to know how much schools value IB predicted grades vs. SAT results, but I would say they're very good if your SAT percentile is above 80% and okay if it's above 60%.
