I'm going into my Junior Year
I failed 2 half credits Freshmen year.
And got a citation for fighting in school, along with suspension for 5 days
3 day suspension for excessive tardies sophomore year.
I am out of state(but i lived in Tampa most my life if that might help at all)
Current weighted GPA:2.096 unweighted-IDK
ACT score:N/A im taking this next year
SAT score:N/A i dont know if im gonna take this at all
Extra Curricular's: Pep Club Sophomore year.
I am planning on getting straight A's next year, which will also get me placed in advanced classes, so my unweighted outta go up to. I had my dad buy an ACT computer study program that guarantees a 5 point increase in ACT scores, I am aiming at a 26-30
I am a smart person, just really lazy, and i messed around freshmen and sophomore year doing nuttin but smoking and drinking and hangin out wit friends, basicly anything but work, i only passed basicly cause of my test's in my classes cause i hardly did any work that had to be done at home including projects, and sometimes i wouldnt even do class work. I used to be an honors student through elementary and most of middle school, i just started getting lazy. In addition to that me making up my 2 failed half credits will raise my GPA and i am planning on taking online classes to replace older classes i messed up in, but i obviously cant replace all of them, ima just replace my lowest ones.
I am trying out for baseball, i used to play before high school, and im trying out for cross country, doing year book, and pep club again.
so my goals are by the time i apply
GPA weighted-3.0 or higher
unweighted-3.3 or higher
ACT score:26 or higher
Extra curriculars: 2 years of pep club and on my 3rd
1 year of year book and on my 2nd
1 year of baseball and on my 2nd
1 year of cross country and on my 2nd
I know i might not make the baseball team or cross country team, but there part of my goals
What would my chances be if i made these goals, and would FSU consider the fact that i had a bad freshmen and sophomore year?
What else should i include to get into FSU?
This is my dream school and i will do ANYTHING to go to it, i have wanted to go here most of my life.
