hey guys. Im applied to transfer to U Pitt but i am freaking nervous right now!!!! was attending drexel for a while, but the school just didnt do it for me. U Pitt i like a lot better, plus i know a few kids there that i have been very close to in the past.
so how hard is it to get in as a transfer? i swere to god im losing sleep over this. here is some background info.
-No Class Rank Given
-GPA was around an 82%, we didnt do it on a 4.0 Scale
-SAT was slightly over 1100 (Old Format)
-Over 60 Credits (mainly due to trimester), equivilant of 1.5 years
-GPA for 3 semesters was 3.41, 3.00, 2.12.
-Reason for the drop was my father became VERY ill and it turned out to be a full time drop. I had to commute to hopsital, commute home to take care of little brother, and to assist my mom when push came to shove. He passed away that semester as well.
-Good grades, above a 3.0
-Attended community college while attending drexel 1 semester, and still pulled off a 3.41 GPA
-Submittied 2 esssays. One dealt with life change and how my views, goals / personality changed, second one described why my grades dipped.
so what do you think here?
i wonder if i should retake the SAT test to up it a little bit? its actually kind of low looking at it, but how do you think they will look at that in relation to my other semesters of college?
also, housing might be hard to get, so i dont know.
