What schools can I get into with these grades?

<p>Distance from my home address is not a consideration, location doesn't matter.</p>

<p>My high school grades were like a 3.0 with 1480 SAT score (the 3 section, thats 1480/2400). My GPA for my 1st two semester at college came to a 3.6 taking mostly general ed requirements.</p>

<p>I'm looking for a college that would place more emphasis on college grades then high school grades when admitting transfer students.</p>

<p>I am interested in a english degree with a concentration in creative writting, or english literature. I want to be a fiction writer, but will probably end up being a editor. </p>

<p>===== So I'm looking for a best english program I can get admitted into ======</p>

<p>What are the best (in terms of best english programs) schools I'm capable at getting into? Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Look up Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts.</p>

<p>U Montana has a very solid English program, including an excellent creative writing program.</p>

<p>Do you need financial aid or can you pay full freight (with minimal loans) at a private school?</p>

<p>University of st. Thomas in St. Paul is a solid Catholic university that you could probably get into.</p>

<p>U Montana?</p>

<p>THanks for the suggestions. I think I'll apply to university of Montana. My dad just died a few months ago and my mom makes like $20,000 just enough to survive, however she has a large life insurance check that she will use to pay my college. </p>

<p>I am interested in a suburban college with a good creative writing program.</p>

<p>Try West Chester U of PA, Indiana U of PA, Kent State (OH), Evergreen State in Washington (actually, this is probably your best fit), Northland College in Wisconsin, St. Paul's college in NY, and Lake Erie College in Ohio (great id you LOVE horses). Many lower-tier LAC's and some state schools would be a perfect match, so don't worry about yourSAT and GPA, worry about who you are and what name you want to put behind yourself for the rest of your life. Good Luck!!!</p>

<p>How are the programs at these two schools ; Purdue university


<p>^ Purdue has epic engineering programs but weak humanities.</p>

<p>I would NOT recommend your mother use a significant portion of the life insurance money for your education. I would assume that money would be for living expenses. She should talk to a financial planner who is well versed in college funding requirements on how to invest and allocate the funds. </p>

<p>I think there is a transfer student forum somewhere. Look around and try there.</p>

<p>The insurance check cannot be used for month-to-month living expenses. Eventually it will deplete, she needs to be able to live on her own salary. I cannot suggest anything with her money, she won't listen to me and gets mad and yells at me.</p>
