I just finished my first semester at Temple University, and Rochester is looking like my top school to transfer to. Here are some of my stats, let me know what you think:
SAT: 1870 (CR 610, M 630, W 630)
GPA after first semester: 4.0
HS GPA: 3.9
Community service (80+ hours over past four years)
I play bass guitar in the church choir every Sunday
Held a job at the college in my hometown for the past five years
Own my own record label
Been playing piano for 14 years, violin for 11, guitar for 8
Member of the running club at my school
Four years of track in HS
I'm applying for audio engineering (I'm currently an EE major), so my essays are focusing on how I can add to the university and community through my music.
Solid rec's from two professors
I did an interview with a rep at the university and it seemed to go really well. She said I was the first person she had interviewed that had the interest in music that I did, so I suppose that is a good thing.
