Transfer--Chances/Advice?

20 yr old, white, male, Graduated from a private New England academy in 2004, GPA: 3.0/4.0 , SAT I: 1180 (M:610 V:570), Varsity Lacrosse (Captain, All-State), Varsity Football (All-State), Future Business Leaders of America, Youth Lacrosse Coach, Special Olympics Coach/Aide

I have been out of school for the past 2.5 years. Since graduating, I have been working full-time in sales. Along with work, I keep busy as a volunteer coach in the town youth lacrosse and football programs. I also am a seasonal volunteer in the local church soup kitchen. I have an internship coming up this Spring with the Democratic National Party in my state's capital and I am also going to Costa Rica for 2 weeks in the summer as a volunteer english teacher.

I am beginning college coursework this Spring for the first time and I would like to apply for transfer admission to PSU upon completion of 60 semester credits. I am hoping to maintain a GPA of 3.6-3.8 during my two years. Do I seem to be a potential PSU transfer? What advice do you have for me? Should I consider PSU as a potential transfer school or is it far too much of a reach, even with a solid college transcript?

Thank You
