Alright, so I got denied from Georgia Tech and UGA for freshmen undergrad. Now I plan to go to Georgia State University. But, I plan to transfer after a year and hope to go to Georgia Tech, UGA, or maybe even Emory.. This time I don't want to screw up and get rejected again! So what should I specifically do to get into these schools by sophomore year of college..
First, I'll give you my high school specs just so you guys have some background..
GPA - 3.4
SAT - 1210/1600 or 1780/2400 - I really regret not doing anything for this, kept falling asleep during the test, it was horrible...
Took as many honors as possible with 5 APs... AP Biology - 5 - 70 in class.. AP US History - 5 - 85 in class. AP AB Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP Microeconomics, which I haven't taken the APs for yet..
ECs - This is where I fall flat on my face, I have absolutely nothing, just a bunch of random clubs, JV tennis in 10th grade.. Nothing else.. I moved a lot during high school so.. I never really did anything but sulk XD..
Now I'm fairly confident in myself that if I actually start doing something I can pull off a high 3.8-4 in GSU, but in addition to that what else should I do? Would a part time job in the summer help? I'm really lost on the EC scene >_>...
I'm just sick of being such a lazy bastard, it's time I pick myself up and do something!
Thanks in advance for all your help
