Hi, hope your well and safe!
I am filling out my common apps form for colleges now as it is my senior year.
Through high school, I made so many mistakes:
I failed two classes in the spring semester of my sophomore year, and one of them was for an honor code violation in English class.
I retook those classes over the summer to get credit back, and I successfully passed them.
I failed 3 more classes in the fall semester of my junior year, and one of them was for a serious honor code violation in an art class. I did not retake those classes.
I wasn’t allowed to continue in art anymore.
However, these honor code violations weren’t mentioned on my transcript. And I owned up to my mistakes to my teachers and counselor.
But, I have also accomplished somethings in high school. I took many classes with dual enrollment and got A’s in all those classes. And I started a Club with friends, which is very successful now. I also got some A’s and B’s through high school. My high school GPA is pretty stable, and my test scores are great.
I want to apply for Architecture as my major, for which I am developing an art portfolio now.
My question is, what should I do? I made so many mistakes, but can colleges overlook those mistakes, and still accept me? And should I pursue my passion to major in architecture?
Please help me out here, I’m so confused and scared.
