A little bio first. I love performing. I do it in band all the time and I’m almost always first to present my projects to the class. I had a student teacher in history who never put a max. time for presentations so I gave a 30 minute lecture on 1950s computers and the space race. Why chemistry? I almost got a low C/high D in Honors chem last year. I almost got all C’s last year because I was lazy. My chemistry teacher was probably the first teacher that really wanted me to succeed. She was also the first teacher that inspired me to actually study for class tests. I ended up with a B in the class and I aced the exam. I knew then I wanted to be a teacher.
Anyway I’ve narrowed down my list to 5 schools.
-West Virginia Uni.
I have several questions for for anyone who has been involved with any of these schools.
- Is the Chemistry program any good?
- Is the Education program any good?
- How LGBT friendly are these schools?
- Is campus life any good?
- Is financial aid for out of state students decent?
For question 5 it may help to know some of my stats.
W GPA: 4.13 (A in AP is 6/A in Honors is 5)
UW GPA: 3.38
ACT: Composite 24 (planning to bring to a 26 before applying)
EC’s: I’d say about average
