Transfer Chances.

<p>I'm looking at Colgate as a potential transfer option.</p>

<p>First semester GPA is 3.79 with one NC (huge blemish that I plan to make up for in the summer.)</p>

<p>Expecting a 4.0 this semester.</p>

<p>Prospective Philosophy or Government major, haven't made up my mind. </p>

Doing a volunteer internship with NYPIRG chapter at my school.
Volunteering a few hours a week at my state assemblyman's district office.
Planning on a legal internship.
Fiction/nonfiction editor on literary review.
Writing for student newspaper.
Member of Student Political Science Association.</p>

<p>SAT: 2100
Reading: 770
Math: 610
Writing: 720</p>

<p>Gonna re-take on the 13th to get that math up.</p>

<p>As far as rec's I know for now that I can get one from my American Government professor/chair of the political science department.</p>

<p>I'm a Hispanic male.</p>

<p>Odds... good, so-so, or pipe dream?</p>

<p>It's still quite selective but make sure you're clear on WHY Colgate is the place for you. How can Colgate help you achieve your goals? Be specific in your essay.</p>

<p>justinian: I think you have a really good chance for transferring. Just work on a great essay that really shows the admissions people about your personality and what specifically you like about Colgate. They are HUGE on the importance of community between our setting in a small town and the college campus. They also really value diversity so any experiences with that would be advantageous to share. Good luck!</p>
