I'm a freshmen at Lasell College in Newton MA, right outside of Boston. It's a dream of mine to attend a huge/prestigous school like BU. I knew senior I was not going to get in so I applied to smaller schools in the area. I've worked really hard and for my first semester I got a 3.88. My major is Graphic Design and I am also an athlete. Ive been in contact with both departments at BU. In high school I was a B+ student. My SAT scores were really low. My portfolio for transfer is really good though and my Instructor evaluation was outstanding. I also do alot of extra curricular activities at Lasell and I'm pretty confident that my essay was written really well. I meet most of the requirements for transferring except for the SAT scores. Do I still have a chance of getting in for the fall 2010 semester? Be honest. Thank you.
