Chances as a transfer?

<p>had a 3.3-3.4 gpa in a large public highschool in NY (So about a 88-89) and SAT of 1160/1600 1810/2400
-Top 25% of my graduating class (650+students)
-president of my class for three consecutive years
-National Honor Society Member as well as active in a few other clubs
-Great recomendations from faculty and local church organization
-Lots and lots of community service hours(Given an award by a local legislator senior year as a recognition for community service.)
-Worked part time during junior and senior year.</p>

<p>Side note: during high school I went through some significant personal problems which i strongly believe prevented me from living up to my potential academically...now that I have those behind me, I know that my college grades are much more accurate of my true potential. </p>

<p>Attend a Community College near home I have my gpa up to a 3.83
-Elected to serve as a Student Government officer for my second year at CC.
-Active member of the political science club (My intended major)
-Work 24-30hours a week part time and continue to volunteer</p>

<p>So first off, could i get into Bowdoin as a junior transfer student? Should I explain my high school situation with the admissions people (not as an excuse but more an explanation) and anyone with info about transfer students at Bowdoin that can share would be appreciated! Thanks</p>

<p>Without offering any comments on the particulars of your credentials, I should warn you that Bowdoin accepts very few transfers..</p>

<p>The most recent data for Bowdoin (students entering in the fall of 2009) shows 161 transfer applicants, 8 accepted, and 3 enrolled. Those are daunting odds . .</p>
