So I have a question for folks that recently had a kid that applies to college.
I've been hearing how it's very difficult for some people.to get into some UC schools and SDSU. Multiple people have said that their kid had a 4.0 GPA a pretty darn good SAT score,and extracurricular activity but still wasn't accepted into UC schools or SDSU.
I believe what people said was true. But at the same time, it's really hard to reconcile this with a friend of a friend 's kid, that was recently accepted by UC, to study premed who only had a 3.2 GPA and a 1050ish SAT score .
That seems really off from all the other people who said their kid had a 4.0 and good SAT and some extracuricular activity.
I'm just trying to understand what factors could have allowed friend of friends kid to get in.
Nice kid, glad he got accepted. But just trying to understand why the large discrepancy
