Chances of me getting into these colleges?
University of Oregon
City University of New York City College
Marymount Manhattan College
Mount St. Mary's College
According to a website these are in the top 150 (or something like that)
I'm working on improving my grades, last years were A,B,D (at A Level) which I'm currently resitting.
My list of extra curriculars are;
My list of extra curricular's;
. Volunteer at my schools Connexions library where I helped pupils find a college that suited them and answered any questions they may have.
. I've been doing majorettes for 5 years (nearly 6 years when I apply) 4 (hopefully 5) of which I have been a leader (or an equivalent)
. I'm about to start volunteering at my local soup kitchen
. I was part of a drama class before the group disbanded
I've done more but those are within the past 3 years, before that though I have
. Taken keyboard lessons
. Was a ''bully buddy'' --- in other words helped kids that were getting bullied
. Part of my schools choir
. Taken part in school plays from when I was aged 3-11
I have also got 7 (hopefully soon to be 8) GCSE's at grade C-B, which are English lit and lang, German, Drama, History, Media (worth 2 GCSE's). I'm retaking my maths this year and hopefully my science the year after.
Any chance of me getting in?
Also would I be a minority student? I'm from England and Caucasian.
Please don't tell me to stay and study over here. I'm not definitely going to do my degree abroad I'm just looking into the different options.
I have an undecided major but I have months to think about that.
There's also a chance that I'd be a transfer student because of the exams we take over here so I probably wouldn't have to do the SAT or ACT (well that's with most colleges I've looked at anyway)
