Ok, so I am a senior in a specialized High School in NYC, Bronx Science and I have a 3.3 average, 1800 SAT, 28 ACT, several Extracirriculurs, VP of one club, and the bad news....5 suspensions, one Superintendent. 4 of them were for theft, however, all were accusations and could not be proved adequatley. I was never caught stealing, just accused, and somehow, all of my statements, were twisted, and used against me. One suspension was for posession of alcohol in school, however, the school has a video of me at my locker for several minutes, however, they have no proof whatsoever that I had alcohol in my locker, however, they did charge this girl who brought the can to school with posession, since she admitted to brining it to school. Anyways, I am trying to become an engineer, an electrical/mechanical engineer to be exact, and I am applying to schools such as Stony Brook, Binghamton, SUNY Albany, Polytech-NYU, Rochester Institute of Technology, NYIT, Syracuse, and Hofstra. The school i really wish to attend is either NYIT or Poly. My question is, how badly will these suspensions impact my college app.
