I'm planning on transferring to Texas as undeclared for summer 09.
After a semester at UT, I plan to do an internal transfer to Communications.
By the end of this semester, I will have a 3.5
And after the spring semester, I will have a 3.64
If everything goes as planned of course (getting all As)
I have two Cs in my transcript.
One for Microeconomics and one for US Government, which I took during HS.
I took AP Spanish tests in HS and just recently turned in my scores to ACC.
I will be getting credit for SPA I, II and III. I'm currently taking SPA IV.
So by the time I'm done at ACC, I will have 48-50 credits.
My ECs are awful.
I did some volunteer work during hurricane Katrina and for Inside Books Project.
That's about it.
At ACC, I heard about Phi Theta Kappa.
I plan on joining it next semester.
My Resume is decent, I think.
Most of the jobs I have had are tech-related (computer repair, server maintenance and database management) and some involve working for my dad.
Lately, I've been repairing XBOX 360s, but I don't think that counts :P
Do you think I will get in if I end up with a 3.64, get more involved (volunteer, etc) and write two great essays?
