Realized it’s a bit early but I’ve been working really hard at my school to be able to transfer for fall of 2020. Hey guys. Was hoping to get chanced (by %) of the odds of my acceptance to UVA. I plan to major in Aerospace Engineering
Here are my stats:
College: the University of South Carolina (Out of State)
College GPA: 4.0 (Currently and hoping to maintain but this is using UoSC’s system where anything above a 90 is an A but Im still trying to get all A’s or higher.)
Total Credit Hours: 35
*All class credits should transfer and I’m on track to meet all requirements
High School GPA: 3.1 unweighted (Did take AP’s but my school didn’t offer many)
High School Class Rank: Didn’t Rank
SAT score: 1290
My EC’s in College:
Ultimate Frisbee Club Team
Unsure where to put this if I do mention it but I’m also a twitch streamer with relatively minor success(65 followers and 600 views) so I am a twitch affiliate but I feel this may be too minor to include.
EC’s in high school:
Tennis team outside of school
Worked a job over the summer
Ran a club focusing on discussions about Current events namely politics.
Part of a Dungeons and Dragon Club
Went on a few service trips to a Native American Reservation and West Virginia
I canvassed for a presidential candidate during the Democratic Primaries
I plan on getting a second recommendation letter from my former employer who knows me very well both professionally and cordially, so I believe it will be a strong essay.
If I can get a 4.0 I will be part of the president’s list at UofSC (14% of Campus) or if I get between 3.5 and 3.99 I will make deans list.
Haven’t written my essay but I would like to write about how I previously stunted myself academically by underperforming but after realizing that fact I’ve started owning up to that fact, addressing it, and now transferring to a school like UVA would be the fruit of my labors, and the reason I chose UVA is because it’s been my dream school because my cousins who are akin to my older brothers went there and I fell in love with it, going to many sports games there.
My top school right now is UVA, but I’m also considering applying to Vanderbilt, UPenn, Princeton(I won’t get in but my cousin goes there for grad school and I love it there.), Carnegie Mellon, and Duke. Unsure if there are any others I want to consider or remove. UVA is my top pick but if I got into any of these schools and UVA I would have to visit them to make sure.
