Strong common app essay about how as a neglected child I lost a lot of time trying to meet my basic needs. As an adult, with less time spent meeting basic needs, I feel like I have been gifted “extra hours”. I uniquely appreciate time and demonstrate this in my essay, concluding that I have gained an understanding that hardships will always arise, but I have the ability to persist and emerge a stronger more resilient person.

I just submitted my transfer application to UNC-Chapel Hill as a biology major. What do you think my chances of acceptance are?

Congratulations for all the success you’ve had so far! I’m not very good at transfers, but if UNC has space in its bio program, I think you would stand a good chance. Do you know if biology is an impacted major at Chapel Hill?

I would think your chances are very high. Good luck!
