SEEK Student - Need support and guidance

Carderr12345Carderr12345 Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
I applied as a SEEK student with relatively low GPA(70s) and a 950 combined SAT score. I'm not sure about my chances in any of the schools but I already got rejected from Lehman. However, I was accepted to Medgar Evers but I don't plan on going there at all. I applied to Hunter, Baruch, City College, Queens as well as Lehman. I had lots of ups and downs during my high school career due to the fact that I moved from Pakistan. My first year in an American school was unfortunately my freshmen year. I learned from my mistakes and was able to achieve a 98+ average my senior year(2 quarters so far). I really hope I get into one of the colleges that I want to get into..Hopefully SEEK helps me. I wrote an essay to Hunter and Baruch as well. I'm going to appeal my admission decision to Lehman hopefully next week. Is there anyone out there that can relate to my story? I really need some guidance. Also please don't tell me to spend a year in community college because that goes without saying. I'll definitely go there if all hope fails.

P.S I posted this para. in one the topics as well because it was trending in the CUNY section. Sorry if you're reading this again.

    Of the CUNY Colleges, Hunter, Baruch, City College, Queens, Brooklyn and Lehman, Lehman would be last in the pecking order. It is possible that as a SEEK applicant you could get into of the four named CUNY Colleges, but given Lehman rejection, it does not bode well for the others. What is your intended major? What are your CR and M SAT scores?

    I received a 450 M and 500 CR. I'm going to take it again and hopefully appeal with a better grade. I'm not entirely sure if I even stand a chance tbh..

    I'm like replying a month later and idk if you got your decisions yet (i know my cousin hasn't heard back from cuny yet), but I am a current SEEK student at Queens. I had a low gpa (75-ish..?) and a somewhat okay combined score (1190) and I got into their SEEK program... So you may get in who knows! The SEEK admissions officers here are really nice and lenient so you probably will get in.
