Chances of transfer from CC? :)

edited January 2018 in Bentley University
HS GPA: 3.6/4.0
SAT (new) 1060/1600 (terrible, will explain below)
ACT: pending, going to take, explained below
College GPA: 3.4/4.0

Extracurriculars: Played varsity baseball throughout highschool, started a semi-successful company until it got liquidated.
Recommendations: From the former NH district attorney who attended Dartmouth and Duke, a Marketing manager at Fidelity, macroeconomics professor

Currently work at Fidelity, they're paying for my education if that means anything

Why I did bad on SATs: company was at its peak, was making $45,000 a year in profit. Thought I was going to be Bill Gates and blew through the test. Mom forced me to take it again, got 10 points hire. Still didn't care. I now care and am most likely going to take the ACT.

Are my chances low? I'm applying for fall 2019 and want to see if I need to improve anything.

Also applying to: Syracuse, BU, Northeastern, Harvard (why not, I'll help drive the acceptance rate down), NYU, University of Maine (my state's uni), Bates, Colby.

    Sorry to pour water on you but your current college GPA might be a bit low for some of the schools listed. I agree with taking a shot and that is all admissions is.

    Pick the school that you feel comfortable at and is within the finances you can handle. Nothing wrong with your state flagship. Go Maine!!!
