Hello everyone! It would be great if someone could give me feedback and chance me! I know it is a stretch but I thought might as well apply.
Applying for Fall 2018 as a Sociology major
State (if domestic applicant): Connecticut
HS Type: Medium/Large public? (Had over 300 in my graduating class)
Income Bracket: Lower/middle class, net pay $45-50,000
Hooks: First generation college student
High School GPA: 4.0 weighted (Top 10% of class)
College GPA: 3.7
I currently attend a community college in CT. I graduated with an A.A. in Multimedia Spring 2017, but I honestly just graduated to finish the degree. I have no interest in majoring in multimedia anymore. I stayed an extra year to do more general ed classes (I started Fall 2015 at CC, and will finish in Spring 2018), as a lot of my classes were art based.
SAT is unfortunate for me (I do not perform well on timed tests....20 minutes to answer 25 questions and read a short story?! It does not work for me...LOL ok rant over): 1560/2400
Does Cornell request transfers to submit AP scores? I feel they are worthless to them as I already completed the same classes in college...
APs that I passed (LOL): Language and Composition, Chemistry
Fall 2017 Courses - 12 credits
Film Study & Appreciation
Racial and Ethnic Diversity
Introduction to Anthropology
Spring 2018 Courses - 9 credits
Sociology of the Family
Modern Western Literature
The reason why I am only taking 9 credits this spring is that I work 30 hours a week and will also begin an internship that is 5-10 hours a week, which means I could potentially be working up to 40 hours a week. Even though I've been working 30 hours a week two out of the three years at community college, I don't want to overwhelm myself with four to five classes since I am also starting the internship.
I'm also considering enrolling in one or two summer courses this year.
Habitat for Humanity (at my college)
Mentor at Boys & Girls Club (will be switching departments to start an internship)
Heifer Farm three day program
Unfortunately, I have not been able to be a part of most extracurricular activities at my college anymore due to my work schedule.
When I complete the Spring 2018 semester, I will have completed 85 credits. Go figure lol
Phi Theta Kappa
I have also been considering applying to some of these colleges (If you could chance me for some of these that would be great): Amherst College, Boston University, Syracuse University, Wesleyan University, Emory University, Skidmore College, Northeastern University, Swarthmore College, and then of course a few state schools as my backups.
Thanks if anyone can give me feedback!!!
