uc santa Cruz

CollegeVine says that UC Santa Cruz is a safety school for me, but I only have a 4.0, with 5 AP's, 3 honors classes and very few extra curricular activities. Is this accurate?

UCSC has a 51 percent acceptance rate.. which means with your GPA, since you are academically overqualified (average there is 3.55), it would be a safety. Also, the amount of APs necessary for a college depends on how many your school offers. Mine is small and has very low participation, so I only took 6. You should be able to get in. :)
