i'm transfering from univ of south florida as a junior, bringing in 52 credits. i had a 3.75 gpa there in a broad spectrum of liberal arts courses, some techinical like computer programming and others less, like intro to dance. i was involved in the community, which is harder to do at some places than others. it's no easy task at usf. i also crafted what i consider to be an award winning essay, with well thought out lines like "if trees could attend college, perhaps the only one not interested in carolina would be a long leaf pine." brilliant, you see, because long leaf pines are the trees from which a high percentage of tar comes from.
my high school sat's, which i took over 3 years ago were 1160--upper 80% at usf, lower 20% at unc. i think i've grown a lot intellectually since my junior year in high school though. not so much as a result of college, but from my own extracurricular pursuits.
