Transferring to Columbia
Hey, everyone, I am currently a community college student, and I want to transfer to Columbia's GS program for the Fall 13 term.
I have a 4.0 GPA with 34 credit hours completed; however, I only took one term of classes with a full course load. The other terms consisted of completing 6-7 credits. That was due to my employment in a restaurant. Will that hurt my chances for admission?
I plan on taking 18 credits worth of courses in the Spring 13 term, and I'm confident I will be able to maintain a 4.0 GPA. The problem is that I will have to submit Part I of my application prior to completing my spring courses, because presumably the last date to take the GSAE will be before May, when my courses will be completed.
I'd appreciate any information and/or suggestions on the matter.
