This is my first time on here so forgive me. I’m sure you get this all of the time but with a 3.2W gpa (horrible, I know) should I even consider applying to Virginia Tech as a CS student? I’d rather not waste anyone else’s time nor my own. I’m an instate HS senior and have had somewhat of an upward trend in GPA. My first two years consisted of a 2.9, I had a 3.8 last year, and I’m now on track for a 3.8 once more this senior year. I should mention (if this works in my favor) that my course load this year consists of mostly DE classes like Government, English, Comp sci, Bio, and Anatomy/physiology. As of now I’m easily holding on to two B’s and 5 A’s.
Some of my Achievements/activities are as follows:
I was the unit commander of my JROTC unit.
Sergeant of my Civil Air Patrol unit
Team captain of an academic competition team
Made it to nationals on another academic team
National and state medals (Earned through JROTC)
Few hundred hours of community service
I speech fluent English and intermediate Arabic, French, Amharic, and Tigrinya
Demographic: half African half Canadian
And while there are some other cool things about me they’re probably not important to the admissions staff. I don’t mean to come off rude and I apologize if I have, but VT has for as long as I can remember been has been my top pick. By the end of the semester I should be at a 3.4/5w GPA (total of all years)
(also, my school only calculates weighted grades)
