Transfer chances for non traditional students
I am a 27 y/o sophmore trying to transfer to Georgetown. I graduated high school in 1997 and, due to horrible grades in high school, joined the military. I was in the military for 5 years and have worked a full time job since then.
I have been independent for 10 years, and I'm now in a community college trying to transfer out. I'm told that even though I'm doing well now (4.0 for my first year, though not much time for extracurriculars) and an obvious change from the dumb kid I was in high school, that my chances of overcoming my high school record are very slim. To tell you how bad it was, I graduated with a 1.3 GPA and 1110 SATs.
Does anyone have any advice on anything I can do to show the admissions commitee that I am a completely different person now?
