    Alright it’s my senior year of high school, and I’m really interested in the health field. Don’t know what I want to be so I’m doing pre-health.

    Chance of getting into a UC and its difficulty based on my stats?

    I know you guys probably get this a lot, but I didn't think that asking this in someone else's thread would be cool. I'd like a general idea of the difference between typical high school and college workloads. I'm pretty sure I can get into a UC with a 1900 SAT and ACT score that is coming in...
