What happens if you don't get accepted to business LEP?chance me !

hoopfanhoopfan Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
I have filled out the common app and checked off business LEP as my intended major. If they decide I am not qualified (chance me....3.6 GPA, 630 CR, 680 M, 670W lots of EC, work experience and an township award) for LEP for Business will they not accept me to UMd? The worst is I am not sure if I 100percent want Business. Maybe want Communcications...Did I just ruin my chances to get in? Thanks for your advise!

    I don't know much about your chances. But I do know that applying to limited enrollment programs do not affect admissions. If you do not get into your program you can still get into the university.

    You can get in the University (you will be placed in the "Letters and Sciences" major.) Your SAT is just right above the cutoff. Is that GPA weighted or unweighted? If it's unweighted, I would say you have at least a decent shot of getting into Smith anyway.

    If you don't get in you can reapply for admission as an internal transfer.

    Thanks DC Hurricaine. I heard transferring into Business is not always easy.

    It's not. I'm planning on doing it and met with the LEP admissions officer (or one of them at least) the other day. He said you've gotta have a good GPA (3.0 at least), a well-written resume, extracurricular activities (either a job or clubs or intramural sports), a good personal statement and it helps to have letters of recommendation (teachers, good friends, club leaders, bosses... pretty much anyone not related to you :P).

    It's basically like applying to university. But he made a good point... it's better to put your best foot forward and at least TRY to get in than to want to get in, never try, then look back at graduating wishing you'd at least tried. And that's what I plan on doing (the former, that is :P)
