I got denied from UW for this fall as an undergrad, and I didn't have any safeties in-state I applied to (not appealing or didnt have areas of study I want).
I currently go to Bellevue College, and should get my AA at the end of this Winter (probs Spring if I take a travel break).
That does mean I will finish a Two-year degree in 3 quarters of actual college time, thanks to APs, Running Start, and College in the High School.
I really wanted to go to UW badly, and still do. So much, that I would rather exchange my AA from BC and apply it to a BA from UW.
So my question is, what are my chances if.. (or suggestions)
- I reapply to UW as an undergrad with my HS stuff for Winter Quarter (3.3 GPA, 1780 SAT, and one F grade. 4 APs, lots of club positions and volunteering. About 65% chance of success based on stats.)
- I apply as a partial transfer (moving my BC, AP, Running Start, etc credits to UW. I have one Withdrawal, but thats cause it was my eighth class during HS)
- I apply after earning my AA in Spring. My first eligible quarter would be summer 2013.
- I transfer to another school in WA that may not have my intended programs of study, but finish GE reqs. (e.g. WWU), before or after obtaining an AA.
I am a Asian (American born/citizen), second generation immigrant, who went to HS in King County. Highest education of my parents is Associates, dad was temp alumni of UW. We are middle income (100k/4 people).
I intend to transfer to a UC for my Masters, or if possible, my BA even. But being a comm coll student, do I carry a stigma of being lower ranked?
I would love to get into UW as soon as possible. I've sat in for courses, have a few credits already from there via College in HS, and most of my friends are there.
Thanks for your consideration!
