Hey guys! (Sorry its a lot)
I’m hoping to transfer to Towson University for Fall 2017. But I am currently at a MD community college, this is my first year so I am a Freshman. My first semester I did very well, although I should’ve taken up another class or two. I ended with 9 transferrable credits and a 3.0 GPA even. Im in my second semester Im doing very well and it should be ending in May, and I’ll have 17 transferrable credits and probably with a 3.0 or higher GPA for this semester as well. So all together I will end with 26 credits but Im taking a summer course to get at least 29 credits before entering all together.
I know they encourage you to have 30 credits, but will having 26 credits, do you think that would effect my chances of getting admitted?
About my HS stuff:
HS GPA: 3.48
SAT (which sucked): 1330
Was pretty active: play vball, joined clubs, helped out clubs, & decorated for homecomings. And Im currently working and a full time student at the same time.
When I applied at the time, they saw my old GPA which was a 2.98 so I dont think that was very helpful. But I ended with a 3.48 senior year. And a weighted of 4.1 something.
PS: When I applied here my senior year, I got admitted through the FTP program if tou guys know that is. Basically it is a program where you are taking CCBC classes for a semester or two while on the Towson campus and then you become a full Towson student taking classes through them. Its kind of a way to give a student a second chance, if you didn’t meet they’re full requirements. ( I decided in late August not to go due to getting personal things in my life together. I was going through some things as my senior year ended in shambles and I needed a year to get some stuff right).
But overall, what do you think my chances are as a transfer after one year of CC of being admitted, considering my high school stuff and what I have going on with community college?
And Im not taking any remedial or developement classes. I have passed my English 101 & English 102 is in progress but Im pretty sure Im going to pass, i have an A right now. And Im taking Statistics right now and I have a C in that and I actually take that class with a Towson U professor.
