<p>Hi, I currently have a 3.38 gpa with two semesters to raise it. When I transfer, I will have an Associates in Graphic Design, so Im hoping that I can use a lot of the basic classes for transferring.
1. I heard NYU doesnt allow some credits to transfer, which ones are likely to get held back? (If anyone has a link to the page that says which credits are transferable because I couldnt find it). </p>
<p>I was in a lot of clubs in high school and into volunteering but kind of start to slack of this year, but I plan on getting back into it this semester. I heard that they dont want to see a lot of volunteering but more so that you committed to something.
2. So how many should I do? I plan on doing an internship in the summer for TOMS under the graphics dept; will that help me stand out more?</p>
<li> I read on the site that you need a foreign language. I was going to do sign language; does that count as the foreign language? </li>
<p>Im a vegan and really want to stay in Hayden or Weinstein since theyre suppose to be the top vegan dorms. I heard that Weinstein is kind of a suck-ish dorm but havent heard anything about Hayden except the food is kind of crap..?
4. Does anyone know anything about those two? And do any of the upperclassman dorms have vegan options? </p>
<li><p>Should I transfer next fall or 2013 Spring? If I transfer in the fall, should I wait till after early decision to get my gpa up or will the early decision give me some lee-way? Is it less competitive in the Spring and would I get a crappy dorm if I wait until then? </p></li>
<li><p>I want to submit pictures as my portfolio, does anyone have experience with this? (sample portfolios are welcomed!)</p></li>
<li><p>Does anyone longboard around campus? I know some my professors get upset when I bring my board into class, any comments on this? </p></li>
<p>I know this is a lot of questions but Im kinda freaking out because I feel like I cant really find anything helpful on their site and the most valuable information I find is up here. Thanks to anyone who helps me out! Any input is greatly appreciated.</p>
