Do I have a good chance of getting into SDSU with these:
Ive always wanted to go to San Diego State University, but I'm worried my GPA isn't good enough alone. My current GPA as a junior is a 3.38, I have taken a total of 2 honors classes(received Bs)(soph year) and 2 AP classes(received B's)(junior year). My average grades are usually 2 A's and 4 B's, but last semester I underwent extensive surgery to get cochleae implants for my hearing loss, which caused my grades to drop for that semester. I ended up with 3 Cs and 3 B's. I am asian American,and have severe hearing loss. I am co-presidnet of a club that is unique in the trivia-state, participate in 3 other clubs, started a chapter of a national organization in my school district and current co president of it, and was part of track for two years, but ill be joining next year. As for volunteering/extra curricular stuff, I've been part of a crisis call center for COVID-19, was about to volunteer at a hospital before the pandemic, but will do so when everything reopens, had my art published in a book, have a job, and accepted into the academy of arts pre college. For SATs, because of the virus, I havent taken it, but if I get the chance to, I will. My average SAT score is a 1400. My for college Essay I am planning to write about the struggles and challenges of my hearing loss that I overcame. But overall, these are some of the specifics I plan to include on my application and I just wanted to see if with these stats and accomplishments and Extracurriculars, I would have a good chance of getting accepted into SDSU.5 replies
