Georgetown, transfer?

<p>I am hoping to transfer into Georgetown, and study Business, from a California CC and would like to know what you guys think of my chances-- otherwise I will concentrate more on getting into a local UC (Berkeley).</p>

<p>Me:
-3.65 GPA, likely will be a 3.7 by the time of transfer.
-Immediate past VP of PR, and Current President of Toastmasters Club
-Organize and host a motivational study skills workshop
-Internship with a small marketing company
-Unique background for personnel statement ("unique" is being humble)</p>

<p>I would really appreciate a hand, as neither of my parents even graduated HS (or most of my family) so it is hard for me to find people to get advice on such things as University matters.</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>BTW If you chance me i will chance you back :) </p>

<p>Also, does anyone know why there is a star next to my forum post? I am new to CC.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>Focus on Berkeley. I know they take CC transfers. Your GPA is low for Georgetown, even if you were applying from a national university.
You certainly have a chance at UCB/UCLA.</p>

<p>ECs are great but it would have been better had you joined some sports. And I agree with the above poster that the GPA is a little low. Overall, I think you have a shot. Just make sure to write an excellent essay.</p>

<p>Thanks guys! I really appreciate the feedback.</p>

<p>After going through College Confidential I think I will focus on getting into Economics at Berkeley or Business Economics at UCLA. The latter would be my preference and the former would be the most likely.</p>

<p>Is there anything that you might recommend to improve my chances? I am likely going to expand my workshop to a local YMCA and focus it towards inner city/troubled youth.</p>

<p>I guess I still could and might be willing to pick up a sport (I have a year to go). But, would picking up a sport really improve my chances as a community college transfer?</p>
