Are my chances ruined?
Answered

I want to go to UC Berkeley, and I took 8 community college classes, but I didn't get all A's on them, and now my capped GPA is a 3.87 while my fully weighted gpa is a 4.34. I don't think there's anything I can do, how bad is it for me?

Most colleges would rather see a willingness to take college level courses than perfect grades on normal courses. Don't be discouraged; your chances are not ruined

It's not bad at all, especially if you have a high weighted GPA. Focus on getting the best grades you can from here and other aspects of your application profile.
