How will admissions officers consider my application as a homeless student?
I am a high school senior in California and for the past three months I have been homeless. I am rather nervous of how admissions officers will view my previous semester as I was given three C's in my classes - all AP. I am dealing with homelessness as I cope with a brain injury I suffered from a car crash that has seriously impaired my ability to perform well in school. I have a 4.15 GPA and a 1240 SAT. I applied to UCLA, UCI, and Berkeley as well as Columbia and Harvard - I would like to get into Columbia. If are familiar with how admissions officers consider circumstances similar to mine I would appreciate a reply.22 replies
