I realized i should probably be more wordy for those who are applying for next fall and are looking for some hope. I was accepted as a PoliSci International Relations major in Warren College.
IGETC: complete after this semester
EC: No but I work part time
Personal insight essay questions: Very good, in my opinion. I think this is what got me in despite my low gpa and lack of extracurricular activities. I only had my mom proofread and she really liked them!
I wrote about my depression, daydreaming affecting my life, creative stories i used to write to cope with being bullied in school, my sibling dynamic and how that helped me become a leader in life, and why I took multiple gaps in my education & why my gpa doesn’t define me and how I will improve myself going forward. I think if you have a lower gpa, being honest about why you have it, why it doesn’t define you, and what you can bring to the table will up your chances. I moved around a lot so i have 2 other (besides the one i attend now) CC’s I went to and i had 3 classes I had to retake because I got D’s in those classes, lots of C’s on my transcript but my grades started to raise once i moved back to California and I spoke about that.
I was also accepted to SDSU. I hope this helps anyone who is reading this thread in hopes of getting in! I didn’t have faith in myself in being accepted so i’m over the moon I was! Everyone who applied/plans to apply should feel proud of themselves regardless
