<p>Hello, I am a current student at a community college. I began studying in college fresh out of high school in 2008 with the plan of transferring after the first 2 years and finish my bachelors at a University. This year was supposed to be my last year of study in college finishing with this spring semester; however, I missed some applications to my dream schools and decided to drop my spring term so that I could retake it next fall and apply on time. I already talked to my counselor and she agreed to drop my credits for this current spring semester and retake it next fall that way I will have a second chance to apply to my dream schools. By then, I will be a year older and there will be a gap between the dates I took classes in my transcript.</p>
<p>Will the spring semester that I dropped and me being a year older affect my college applications next fall?
Will the colleges find out that I dropped a semester?
Will I even be able to apply at all?</p>
<p>Also, I have already missed about 3 weeks of school and I think there is still some chance that get back on this spring semester so that I can apply for the schools whose deadlines are yet to pass.
Would this be my best option at this point?</p>
I have a 4.0 GPA
I am the president of the math club
I got a 740 in both SAT MATH lvl 2 and SAT physics</p>
