Transfer - advice and chance?

<p>I'm a current sophomore applying to transfer from a public state university. My high school GPA was far too abysmal to speak of (below 2.0) and I graduated a few months late. I had focusing and motivation issues, to be short. </p>

<p>College GPA: 3.34 (weighed down by two Fs in community college courses I did not drop on time while concurrently in high school, but straight-A streak since Fall 2010)</p>

<p>SAT Superscore: 2190 -- 800 WR/740 R/650 M (let me know if they don't superscore)</p>

<p>ECS: None, other than an internship with a major local broadcasting company. </p>

<p>Major: English or Anthropology or Political Science. </p>

<p>Essay: I realize the paramount role of the essay in Reed admission decisions. But I'm trying to figure out what to focus on in the essay. Right now, my "why Reed" essay focuses on my personal sense of awe towards the world of learning. What am I missing?</p>

<p>Thanks for your help! Any advice would be most appreciated.</p>

<p>Without the super-scoring, I received 2080 on the SAT each time.</p>

<p>It sounds like your essay has a great premise off of which to work. I recommend next connecting that love of learning straight to Reed: what about Reed will work well with your awe towards the world of learning? This should be fairly concrete, as abstractions tend to apply to more schools than just Reed ^^</p>
