Well at USCD and Irvine you should be a preeeetty competitive candidate. UCLA is long reach for you. If you look at their 80% range the low end is 680! meaning 40 points more than you have on the low end. But that doesn't mean don't apply! Do! You gotta have a dream! and people do get accepted. But just cover yourself sir, by adding one or two more schools at which you would be competitive.
