Community College and Grad School

<p>Hi there everyone, I love this site haha.</p>

<p>I am currently a 4th year at UC Berkeley, and I transfered last year.
I had a 3.88 gpa at my Comm College, and now at Berkeley I have a 3.0.</p>

<p>I am currently thinking about going to grad school.
For Comm with focus on advertizing or strategic public relations.</p>

<p>I am looking at schools like USC, CSUF, LSU, UT, SDSU, and GWU.</p>

<p>My question is,
I know most of the schools like USC and GWU have average gpas of 3.4 acceptance for these graduate schools.
The two questions are:
1: I am almost positive but make clear to me that USC will look at my Comm College gpa and take it into consideration (also the weight that a 3.0 at Berkeley must look some what more substantial). (If you average my Berk and Comm College it would be a 3.4)
2: I am the editor of a magazine on Berkeley's campus, also the Officer Historian for a club, and have an internship with a congressman (that I am doing right now) Do any of these affect my chances of grad school acceptences?</p>

<p>this has nothing to do with your post, but I'm curious when we switched over from advertising to advertizing.. this must have been within my lifetime, as I thought the word was one of the few precious holdovers from British English that we've retained in the United States.</p>

<p>upon further research, it appears that the -ize spelling is actually the "Oxford system of spelling" and not an Americanisation. </p>

<p>It turns out that advertise is one of the few words which does not take this form within the Oxford system and should be spelled with the -ise suffix, accordingly.</p>
