Third times the charm?
Hello, I am currently a rising sophomore at Palm Beach Atlantic University with 69 credits and a 3.8 G.P.A. My major is History and I minor in English (I’m interested in pursuing a career as a History Museum Curator). Last year I applied to Georgetown University with a 28 ACT, 3.4 G.P.A, and a full IB schedule. I was just informed that my transfer application to Georgetown was denied for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. I only ended up at PBA because my sister goes there but I hate the school and was really hoping that I’d be able to transfer. Could I please have some help on applying a third time? Is it worth it? How should I develop my application? What do I do to increase my chances (retake ACT, form relationship with GU transfer office, get better recommendation letter, do something extraordinary, etc.) I know I sound desperate, but I have kinda reached the point. Georgetown is the only school I’ve ever wanted to go to and the thought of graduating from PBA makes me crazy. I am somewhat grateful that I won’t have to be on campus due to the pandemic (which is nothing to be thankful for, me not being in Florida is really just a silver lining). I’ll take all the assistance I can get.6 replies
