Emerson Chances

Last year I applied to Emerson for BA theater studies with political communications as a back up major, but I was flat out rejected. I'm planning on taking a gap year and reapplying because I love the school so much.


GPA: 2.9(fr/soph), 3.4 (jr/sr)
SATs: v: 590, m: 630, cr: 790, total: 2010
ECs: choir (fr, soph, sr)
drama (fr, soph, jr, sr)
dance (jr, sr)
SALSA-students advocating life without substance abuse (sr)
make-a-wish club (sr)
summer internship working with kids in theater (soph, jr, sr)
internship at a senator's office (sr)

I have two separate GPAs because I transfered from a parochial school to a private school after sophomore year because of harassment. That's also why some of my ECs are a bit chopped off (the schools didn't offer the same opportunities). During my gap year I'm also planning on taking some college courses as well as preparing for auditions again.

I would just like to know anyone's opinion on my chances after applying again.

    Your SAT score is good enough, your gpa is below what they like. About 50% will be based on your audition, but they go by academics first. Even if they love your audition if the academic reviewers decide not to accept you that will prevail.

    Good luck!
