The Stats You Need For Umich, Uc'S + More!

hey guys. don’t mind my voice I’m a little bit sick right now but I wanted to still get this video out a lot of you guys have been asking over on my college decision video what my stats were to get into University of Michigan UCSD and I was also wait-listed at UCLA in Boston I am currently waiting on UCLA I will update you guys on what ends up happening with that but yeah. I’m just going to be basically telling you guys like my standardized test scores like a CT SAT AP test scores and my rank and GPA. that you guys can kind of get an idea of where you fall in those categories for these schools quick disclaimer though you don’t need these scores to get into those schools because there are plenty of other people who have totally different stats that get into these schools most applications if not all applications are you holistically. they’re not going to view your stats and say oh well they don’t have the right stats for this like they’re not going to get in they take a look at everything that you have to offer besides just your scores or your GPA or whatever. don’t get discouraged if your stats don’t look like mine or they’re better or worse a minor or whatever they don’t want everybody to be exactly the same anyways they weren’t a diverse class anyways let’s just get into my stats and yeah my unweighted GPA was I believe a 3.97 I don’t think I actually submitted an unweighted GPA anywhere like not even to you C’s I think they kind of have their own algorithm for that type of thing my weighted GPA was a 4.3 and I did submit that basically everywhere except for you C’s. what basically if you guys don’t know how that translates into grades I got all straight A’s except for 1b but it was in an honors class and that was my junior in honors chemistry. it technically at my school at least counted as an A because it was weighted. for my class rank I had a super super small class all extremely intelligent with GPAs like 4.0 and above my ranking was a 17 out of 81 when I apply for college I’m not sure if it’s still the same because a lot of people like dropped AP classes and stuff after the first semester or like right before some new year. I’m not sure got me what it is now but that is what it was when I applied to college 17 out of 81 which is top 20% I think I only took one AP test up until senior year this year I’m taking 4 AP tests but obviously when I applied to college I didn’t have those scores because I still haven’t even taken them yet but I put down the I was planning to take them I just haven’t received my scores yet but the only score I actually submitted was my AP Lang score and that was 84 but clearly like that shows that you don’t even have to take tons and tons and tons of APs obviously that’s not the biggest factor in your application. for my standardized testing which is what most of you guys asked about I took the PSAT which somebody wanted to know about. I will talk about my score for that. what do you know forgot to talk about my score that I’m a great youtuber okay I go on a 1250 on my PSAT not sure how grave predictor that is for what you’ll actually get on your AC’s here SAT but the people want to know. I’m giving the people what they want and I took the a CT I did not take the SAT but I will talk about how my a CT score converts in that scale and if you guys want to know how I prepped for that and figured out what test was better for me I could definitely do a video on that too because they test on some different things besides just having a smaller mass section or whatever like the math is different and that’s the way it’s formatted it’s kind of different my a CT I took twice I took it once in June before my senior year and once in September of my senior year the first time I took the a CT I got a 32 my English score was a 35 my Renu score was 836 my math score was a 24 and my science score was a – and then my writing score wasn’t eight. obviously my math section wasn’t super strong. that’s why I ended up retaking it hoping to get a better math score the second time I took it I got 33. my score went up by one point and I got the same reading in English scores a 28 in math 31 in science and a 7 in my writing. my math score went up a couple things went down by one point but not too significant and inverting this over to the SAT this converts to about a fourteen eighty on the 1600 scale. this is toward the top end of the average at University of Michigan and the two UCS I applied you something that I forgot to mention that I feel like it’s pretty important especially if you are a minority is how your standardized test may be viewed differently depending on your race. I will put a table right here. you guys can kind of see how it is if you’re mixed I’m not really sure how that translates like I’m Asian American and European. I’m not sure how it’s viewed because I am biracial um.

I’m not completely sure about that but this is just to give you kind of a general overlook of how it may go for you hopefully that’s helpful I saw this in a couple of different places including la time. I feel like this is pretty reliable information but again this may not even apply to all colleges this may just be a few colleges or whatever. yeah take it as you will but yeah if you guys want video on how I prepped for my standardized tests let me know and I will definitely make sure to get that out to you that is all my stats I hope that was helpful to you in some way but yeah don’t don’t compare yourself to me too much because there’s some really a wide range of people and wide range of scores and tons of people who have very different numbers let me know if you guys want some more college videos I’ll definitely be making more about like the classes I took extracurriculars that type of thing what my application look like essays ba ba ba ba ba but if there’s any other you guys want to know let me know and I’ll be sure to put that out and if you are not here for the college videos and you’re just like what the heck why is she making. many college videos don’t you worry I will make normal videos as well this is not gonna turn completely into a college channel just make sure to give this video a thumbs up if you liked it or it was helpful to you subscribe and you want to comment you should comment and also my social media is in the top bar on my channel if you guys want to follow it I took it out of the down bar because it just took a lot of room but if you go to my channel it’s in the About section. yeah I love you guys bye

Applying To College In California?

Applying To College In California?

hey everybody welcome back to my channel it’s me Katrina Marie I’m here to make sure that you become the very best possible applicant before you click Submit and today I want to talk to you about California why because I just got back from there that’s why and I had an amazing time and if any of you ever visited or currently live in California you’ll know that it’s pretty cool it has a lot of variety and it has a lot going on there. let’s just kind of talk about California did because it has a unique higher education system and I was brought up there I was born there and I kind of just want to share with you a little bit of information on how to get started and the four different options you have applying to college or university there. let’s just jump right into it there are four tiers of colleges and universities in the state of California it’s quite unique and the first tier is community colleges community colleges literally do not have any crazy hard core requirements simply it just requires that you either graduate it or taking your GED there is really no major deadline process like there are with other types of universities there’s no essays there’s no SATs or a CT requirements there are no GPA requirements there’s no interview requirements it is pretty straightforward and in the first two years you’re getting your general education done it’s a little bit more of affordable option for those of you who maybe can’t afford it or or can’t afford going to college and it’s a good option to get your first two years done it’s the same kind of curriculum you would be doing as if you were going to go to a four-year institution and the great thing is is that you can get an associate’s degree and then also transfer to a four-year university and finisher last two years. the Community College route is actually a really great option for people and a lot of people that have done it they they feel that they’ve saved quite a bit of money and if you just stay focused and you meet all the requirements you can transfer pretty smoothly with your transfer counselor at the Community College all right the second is CSU California State University there are 23 campuses. the campuses are all over the state of California depending on what kind of environment you’re looking for there are a variety of different campuses that have different things that they offer I personally went to a California State University they are a liberal arts type of institution however they’re growing in offering master’s degrees and PhDs and there are research opportunities as well but traditionally they are a liberal arts style institution they are a little bit more affordable they are a four-year institution and their application deadline is from October 1st to November 30th and that is a universal application window it is every year it it’s been like that for all the time. the CSU’s are a great option they are pretty straightforward they do have certain GPA requirements or maybe SAT requirements you’ll have to look at each University but they have no essays and they have no interviews they are pretty straightforward it is very numbers focused it is not holistic. if you want to know more about that you can look up to each CSU website and see how to apply to that particular campus now the third tier is you C’s University of California. there are 10 campuses but none of these campuses have undergraduate degrees okay the tenth one does not. if you are interested in going to a UC the application process is universal and their window to file the application is November 1st to November 30th and again it is a universal application timeline and that deadline is a hard deadline. make sure that if you’re thinking about applying to a UC you only have a month to submit the application that window from November 1st to November 30th now it is a lot more holistic yes they want to know a little bit more about the school you go to your grades your GPA your SAT or a CT results they want to know more about you as an applicant and they want to have you write some personal statements their short answer and they want to know a little bit more about your extracurriculars and what you’ve been doing while you were in high school. again it is a lot more in depth the application process and that kind of leads us into the fourth one which is private schools private schools there are about 75 and in California and they vary from you know maybe just arts or maybe just tech or maybe they have a liberal arts education California private universities vary and the application varies. you’re gonna have to look very closely at what they’re asking of you their application window depends on their their schools. you’re gonna have to figure that part out and research to see when their applications do you may need to submit your grades your SAT or a CT scores your personal statements or essays you might have to submit letters of recommendation you may have to do an interview it really depends on the school there is no universal centralized system of applying to all these schools now there is something called common application the school might be on Common App or you might have to apply it through their personal website. again each private school varies there you have it there are the four tiers the first tier is community colleges the second is CSU’s California state universities third one is UCS University of California and the fourth are private universities. if you feel that this information has helped you or if you are interested or
