sat4lyfe--I am a freshman in SMG and I'm pretty sure that you will probably get into CGS. I just hope you weren't as self-deprecating on your admissions essay as you are on this board.
And everyone else, you really have nothing to worry about. If you don't get into BU, you'll probably get into some other great school and next year you won't even be thinking about the other schools you applied to.
And CGS isn't the only school with funny abbreviations...
CGS (College of General Studies) - Crayons, Glue, Scissors
SMG (School of Management) - Sex, Money Greed
ENG (College of Engineering) - English No Good
CFA (College of Fine Arts) - College of False Aspirations
CAS (College of Arts and Sciences) -Completely Average Students
I am only a current junior in high school, but i love BU from what i have seen and read about it, and i am definitely interested in going there in the fall of 2011.
GPA- around a 3.5 UW
School doesn't weight grades, but i think i am around a 3.8 weighted? ( self calculated)
Top 20 percent at least, don't know the exact percent, the school doesn't tell us until graduation
SATS- taking for the first time in May with subject tests
ACTS- Taking soon too.
3 years tennis, 2 years varsity, next year possible captain
3 Years leadership class
Next year senior class president maybe
Over 100 hours community service, will probably get at least 50 more before i apply
2 years national honor society ( possibly president next year)
Summer job this summer
Next year editor for the school news paper
Job for the local paper
Other: From the west Coast
Hopefully going to do the summer challenge or summer honors program at BU this year.
Applying to COM for journalism i think, maybe advertising, not sure yet
Can anyone please chance me, thanks! Also do you think there would be any chance i could get scholarships or grants? My family isn't poor but we cannot afford to play over 50 thousand a year, and also my sister is in college right now too. Is there anything else that would help me get accepted to Boston University, i am also debating applying ED or not? Advice?
yeah i really really need to get into CGS other wise ill be going to a community college, because 11th and 12th grade were horrifc years for me academically people think im trollin but i really wanna know if CGS takes lot of ppl cuz my college options are pretty limited now
i wanna go visit CGS and talk to the admissions to see if that wud increase my chances
I hope I get into CAS and don't get deferred to CGS...
I was looking at my school's naviance statistics from previous years, and tons of people with my GPA/SAT were waitlisted (tons were accepted with lower stats though...). Oddly enough, these same people got into NYU, Michigan, Cornell, Tufts, Duke, and, one, got into Yale, so I don't know what to think...
@sat4lyfe why do you make so many posts, and post questions about your stats on every post? Just wait until you hear back from the school, you already applied and you have the grades that you earned, if you have to send in mid year reports then send them in, there is nothing else you can do about it, you just have to wait until you hear back from the school. If not get your grades up at community college and then transfer to BU later. I understand that you are really anxious to hear from the school, but making this many posts all the time makes you seem a little bit pathetic. Sorry but good luck getting into BU!
