I have completed over 100 hours of classes, 87 of which are transferrable. I had a bad start when I first went to school 10 years ago, and this has lowered my overall GPA to 3.08. In my most recent schooling, I have completed the following degrees/certificates:
Associate of Arts, Honors (GPA 3.404)
Certificate: Computer Systems, Networking and Communications
Associate of Science, Honors (GPA 3.563)
I was also a member of Phi Theta Kappa and National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and held a chapter officer position for 2 years as webmaster for Phi Theta Kappa, and 1 year as a chapter officer for National Society of Collegiate Scholars (webmaster also).
On my transfer resume, I have listed over 200 hours of community service and related activites. And had some excellent letters of recommendations from my Phi theta Kappa Advisor, one of my Calculus teachers, and the director for the science and engineering center at houston community college. I also had 2 essays that I would consider strong. I have also ran my own business as a web designer, IT consultant, SEO
analyst and content writer since 2003.
I have applied for the College of Natural Sciences, specifically as an entry level Computer Science major. Aside from being Core Completed, I have taken the following classes from their transfer guide (and their respective grades):
BIOL1406, 1407 - A,A
CHEM 1411,1412 - A,A
MATH 2413,2414,2415 - B,A,A
MATH 2318 - (on track for an A, listed as a class I am enrolled in and intend to transfer on my application)
I understand that the college of natural sciences gives preference to those who meet their "math readiness" suggestion.
On a side note, after Spring 2013, I am eligible for the "Fresh Start" program, which would bring my GPA up to a 3.444 (I would only need to retake 2 of the classes, composition 1 and 2), though I would have to apply for the summer or fall semesters.
I see that many are receiving their acceptance status already, and I wonder, despite all that I have done, if the 3.08GPA will be enough to get in. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
