Any USD, USC, or UCLA students?

Hey guys,
Senior in high school here and just wanted to gauge your guys' reaction on attending school in SoCal. I have applied to the three mentioned above, and will hear from all of them as well as the University of Michigan in 4-6 weeks. Any perspective helps: the grades you had to get accepted, balancing life at one of these schools with paintball, workload, social life, etc.

Stats: 3.26 on a 4.0 scale (several AP courses, no AP scores worth mentioning).
1850 SAT, 26 ACT (I applied with only my SAT)
Decent community service and a few extracurriculars.

Thanks in advance

Don't get your hopes up for UCLA man sorry. I don't even think you could get into UCSB. Those are more UCSC, UCM, UCR, and higher-end Cal State stats.

Wasn't really planning on it. Just banking on the fact that my brother went there and did really well, and that it isn't need blind, as my college fund should be able to pay for it out of pocket.

What about the others?

Don't know much about USD. You should have a shot at USC though. A few of my friends who go there now had about the same stats as you. Maybe a little higher gpa like a 3.4 or 3.5.

The best advice I can give you is don't be afraid to appeal if you don't get in. I personally know probably 10+ people who got into UCSC, UCSB, and UCLA on appeal.

Denied from UCLA (what a surprise lol), wait-listed at USD. Going to write them a letter on Monday expressing my interest. I will hear from USC next friday.

Having siblings and even other family members go to a public university doesn't really matter, especially in the California school system. Out of curiosity, where did you end up going? I had a 2010 on the SAT and a 4.1 (I think?) GPA out of 5.0. I got into UCSB and USD but got wait-listed at UCD and UCSD. I ended up deciding on Cal Poly - SLO.

I got into UCSB out of state(Georgia) with a 3.6 on a 4.0 scale unweighted. 2000 SAT, but sadly Cali is too expensive for me :/
