Hoping to Transfer

<p>So I currently go to Ithaca College right next door to Cornell. It has been my dream for awhile to go. My grand dad was a professor at Cornell and died when I was 4. I never really got a chance to know him and I have very few memories. I would love to make him proud to go follow in his foot steps. It would mean a lot to me. I wanted to go right out of HS but my HS never sent my transcript so I was never considered an applicant. </p>

<p>Okay, off my soapbox.</p>

<p>In high school I was a 3.8 student with AP and Honors classes.
In college I have had a 3.4 this pretty difficult classes but probably not near Cornell level. </p>

<p>I played Golf and Lacrosse in HS at the Varsity level going to the state championship in Lacrosse. </p>

<p>I am a Private Pilot, SCUBA diver, boating license and recreational motorcycle racer (on tracks). I am a member of Habitat for Humanity and the Ithaca Trading Club up at school. During the summer I have worked 40 hours a week since I was a junior in HS. </p>

<p>I have legacy going for me with my grand dad being a professor before his death, have some professors as family friends as well, good family friends with the ex President of Finance at Cornell who now works for Princeton. </p>

<p>I know my grades aren't exactly what you would call up to "par" and you would just laugh at my SAT scores compared to most Ivy Leaguers but with the rest of my resume I think I have a shot. I was hoping you guys could throw your input out there and just me some suggestions to better my chances. </p>

<p>No hard feelings : )</p>

<p>whats your prospective major?</p>

<p>ILR school but I'd go CALS if I had a better shot of getting in</p>

<p>^ ack, exactly what NOT to say. pick the one you like best and then focus on that</p>
