What GPA and SAT scores are required by a college like the University of California berkely?

Have you tried going to the web page for the college you are looking at and seeing if they have the requirements for admission posted somewhere on the web page. more than 1660

I'm not sure if you just meant a larger, strong institution like UW, or UW in particular, but I know that UW admissions is a highly heuristic process, particularly based on your application essay. Weak students with a penchant for diversity and a willingness to learn are often accepted over boring, but academically strong students. Generally speaking, a 3.5GPA and an 1800+ SAT are solid, but your essay will likely mean more in the midst of the flood of "good" student applications they receive each quarter. Mostly based on numbers. especially your gpa. around 4.0 if not, higher.

Can an African-American get into the University of Washington with a 2.5 GPA and decent SAT scores?

I don't know what year you are, but you can check their website for summer programs that may help you get your foot in the door. You really need a better GPA, but a lot will depend on what high school you are coming from and how challenging your program was. If that is really where you want to go, call and talk to someone in the department that helps with minority recruiting. You may need to go to a junior college first, or even come in on probation. If you can do better and you have just been skating along, you may need to prove yourself...but I'm sure you can do this if you are willing to focus and work very hard. The thing is just keep talking to people until someone gives you an answer that will lead to where you want to go. Do Not Get Discouraged if the first one or two or three people you talk to say no. There is always a way to do what you really want to do. Peace

Bowl Championship Series

Is USC's claim to the 1939 national championship legitimate?

It may be legitimate, however the national champion, Texas A&M went undefeated 10-0, and USC went 8-0-2. Having two ties hurts their claim quite a bit. answer HARDLY. The NCAA records book identifies 34 different national champion major selectors from 1869 to present. A fellow named Frank Dickinson, an economics professor at Illinois, developed a mathematical system he used from 1926 to 1940 to name his so-called champion. (He predated selections in 1924 and 1925). He, and he alone, among the 15 selectors choosing a champion for that year, chose USC. Two others chose Cornell. The remainder chose Texas A & M.

What are the qualifications for getting into USC?

People say you need like around a 3.8 GPA at least a 1300 on your tests (ACT in 30's) and be very involved; lots of community service helps also. Family legacy used to count alot, but doesn't as much. However it still counts for something. Also, everyone thinks schools want to see a well-rounded student, which to some degree is true, but actually what is is more important is an "angular or pointed" student; meaning someone who shows genuine interest and passion for select activities. It doesn't mean as much if you're 101 activites just to fill up space on your application. The college only cares if you contributed to that club etc. otherwise it doesn't hold as much weight as you might expect. I toured USC and an admissions advisor spoke to my group saying even if you don't think there is a chance of you getting in, apply anyways, there are people who get in that have lower GPA's, grades aren't everything although they do help, obviously. If you don't get in you rfreshman year, it is definitely much easier to a junior college for 1 or 2 years get really good grades and then transfer, that way USC doesn't have to worry about the transfer GPA's affecting their average. It is much easier. Good Luck and Fight On Trojans!

Why did DNA in Hershey-Chase experiments end up in the supernatant?

It didn't. The DNA ended up in the pellet-like bacteria that was at the bottom of the centrifuge. The protein capsids ended up in the supernatant because they weren't injected into the bacteria cells. The supernatant was separated from the bacteria cells because the bacteria was heavier and fell to the bottom.

Human Behavior

Do today's youth have too much freedom?

I think that the words "too much freedom" really should not be put together in that order. I believe the real question is "Are parents skilled enough for todays youth?" That answer is, for the most part, a big collective NO. They do not modernize as necessary to support a shift in culture. Childhood freedom is the best part of living in the here and now. No more patriarchial (What dad say goes!) crap of the 50's. Children are now unhindered by parents who have major insecurity issues. Children are able to point out their parents mistake (Which I fell is a grand thing. For, if I'm screwing up I want one of my three children to let me know. I sure as hell would have wanted the same when I was growing up!) However, the freedom means parents need to get their buts in gear and either network with parents who know what their doing or read up on books (Not the ones that say "YOU ARE THE PARENT!". Those titles are destructive to otherwise constructive parenting. Freedom is a good thing for youth to have. They can make healthier choices (having learned the hard way will instill in them their lesson quicker than ludicrous rules and regulations).

So, in short, I believe that the amount of freedom some kids have is far to less for a growing mind and spirit (not the religious kind of spirit). Just because they have not turned 18 does not mean they couldn't be fully autonomous if given the chance. That is a good skill to have. Give them the love you can give them, listen, be there, help (WHEN THEY ASK FOR IT) but you want them to be able to 'make it' without you. Just in case something would ever happen to you.

Parenting!

Having raised six children - and all of them now parents themselves and less then seventy miles away - I would disagree with the previous answer. The dilemma of the 1960's, really a revolt against too much parental control, resulted, like any other revolt, in overcompensation and allowing too much freedom. Like Aristotle proposed nearly 2500 years ago, we need to find the "Golden Mean." At time we need to exercise control and, at other times, we need to let go.

So now, when do we control and when do we let go? Yes, of course, this is more difficult than to take the simpler, one course route. This is where your judgment as parent comes into play. And, that judgment has to do with the child and its maturity.

I just answered a query as to whether a 10-13 year old child should be allowed to go to the shopping mall alone. Most likely not, but this depends on the child. How well can the child make a good decision? This is the ultimate question! As parents you must ask your child specific questions! Would you go with a stranger who wants to buy you an ice cream? Would you join your friends when they decide to go into a store and steal merchandise?

Parenting is a full-time job. There are no easy answers. Each situation must be judged independently and be based on the maturity of the child and their ability to make good decisions. Some children mature earlier than others. But most want some direction.

How many NCAA national football championships has Notre Dame won?

Notre Dame is credited with 13 national championships. The years were 1924, 1929, 1930, 1938, 1943, 1946, 1947, 1949, 1953, 1966, 1973, 1977, and 1988.

==actually, in division 1A, the NCAA does not award a championship. The reference made to thirteen championships here are "POLL" championships. The early ones especially have to be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism.

Notre Dame has not won any NCAA Football National Championships. The NCAA does not award a national football title in Division 1A football because there is not a sanctioned NCAA playoff system in place as there is in most other NCAA sports. The football Division 1A National Football title is a "mythical" title being decided by as many as several dozen different polling groups over the past 150 odd years. There have been as many as five national champions voted in a single year in the past. The current BCS National Title is not recognized by the NCAA either.
