Peabody (special education)

<p>Jewish/Hispanic male Sophomore, first generation college student with 33 credits and a 3.56 gpa (rising trend). I am taking 15 credits in the fall and another 15 in the spring. I am going to be applying to Peabody wanting to go into special education. The reason for the Law classes is due to me wanting to be a legal advocate with special education. My high school statistics weren't great I started my Junior year with a 2.76 and graduated with a 3.4, shows my ability to bounce back from adversity, but by the end of my spring semester I will of completed 66 credits, which I would imagine would make my high school record irrelevant. </p>

<p>Great Recommendation letters and essays (probably the strongest part of my application besides my ecs)</p>

Composition 2
Criminal Law
Criminal Procedure
American History 2
Anthropology </p>

<p>Extracurriculars (high school):</p>

<p>I know a lot of people hate seeing this "chance me" or "can i get in" posts, but I am someone who really wants to go to vanderbilt and be apart of the special education program. Please give me feedback regarding my chances or anything I can do to enhance my chances for admission.</p>
