So I just wanted to see if anyone could chance me so I could have a better idea if I am wasting my time trying to get into UofM from community college. I plan on applying to the CoE if anything. Along with this any advice on improving the chances of community college transfers would be greatly appreciated!
-class of 2019 HS
-currently in my 3rd semester of college (Fall winter and summer, all full time so far)
-bad high school grades, probably around 2.7 GPA
- 1180 SAT
-practically no extracurriculars that are outstanding
-got a 5 on the IB chem HL test
- got 9th place in an american chemical society scholarship competition which was the highest score in my school
-member of Phi Theta Kappa honors society
-4.0 in community college, I took calculus 1 though 3, differential equations/linear algebra (mixed course), two semesters of organic chemistry, and by next year I will have completed two semesters of calculus based physics along with two semesters of C++ programming and two semesters of C# programming. I am going to try to study more math in my free time if possible this next year.
-I am confident that I could right really compelling statements for the admissions process
That is basically it. I really lack in terms of things outside of school, however I still have an entire year to do something if I can figure out something to do that would improve my chances.
Some days I think I have a shot whilst others it seems hopeless. Reading about some of the other people who are “stressed” about getting rejected is extremely concerning because they have 1540 SAT scores with perfect GPA’s along with tons of volunteering and stuff.
So, does it seem like I have a good shot? Or should I focus my efforts on a different university?
