I'm a Sophomore with a 3.3810 GPA. I really want to get into a UC school. I recently finished a quarter and ended up with a 3.25 with one "C." Will that one "C" affect me a lot? I'm not taking AP classes which is the bad thing.
That would depend upon the school you want to attend. It will also depend upon extracurricular activities. Hopefully you have a counselor with whom you can discuss this.
I want to attend UC Irvine. But with the GPA, grades, no AP classes until next year, I feel that chance is very slim.
You could also be working on all your studies and whatever else it takes to make sure you earn the highest SAT scores you can.
SAT scores AND grades/courses are looked at carefully, so work on what you need to boost those SAT scores.
Here are some sites you might like to peruse for more information:
