Hi all!
So throughout HS I have dealt with a lot and it impacted my GPA greatly however I have an upward trend and my sat is at an 1450 right now. Which is why for my top schools I am applying to their foundation/general/liberal studies program. I am on the hunt for colleges with similar programs to: NYU- Liberal Studies Core, Northeastern: General Studies/Foundation Year/ContiNUe, Boston University- College of General studies and last but not least the Myra Kraft Transitional Program at Brandeis. Do you guys know of any other colleges with similar programs? Thank you all!

    At many colleges, students commonly start undeclared and complete general education requirements in their first two years along with prerequisites for their possible majors (may overlap with general education requirements). So consider colleges where your possible majors are not overflowing with students, so that they are not highly competitive to declare.

    That is also applicable to students who start at community college and apply to transfer to a four year school two years later, though obviously the transfer process can be competitive depending on the target school and major.
