I'm a Minnesota resident and currently a rising sophomore at Indiana University. UW-Madison was my first choice as I was applying to colleges as a high school senior, however I was rejected and ended up at IU which I honestly don't like that much. I was going to stick it out at IU and just hope things get better, but honestly, I want to go to Madison and I suppose there's no point in giving up. If important, my high school stats were 3.0 GPA/ 27 ACT / lots of AP's and EC's.
First semester college: (Was working 30 hrs/wk)
Intro to Microeconomics: D+
Telecommunications Production: B
Intro to Media: C
Second Semester College: (was not working)
Pass/Fail Remedial Math: Pass
Intro to Criminal Justice: B
3rd Semester Spanish: B
Intro. Chem Lecture: C
Intro Chem Lab: B+
Telecommunications Management: C
Overall GPA: 2.6
Next Semester Classes: 4th Semester Spanish, Finite Mathematics, Telecom Lab, Media Life, and Media in Society. I might replace one of these with a core class.
- I'm a Welcome Week coordinator for the dorm I lived in Freshman year, this fall.
- Member of CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ)
- On the IU sailing team, on the recreationalsailing commitee board
.. and that's about it for freshman year. I want to get into Wisco someday, and I suppose I just need to know what term to apply for and what I have to do between now and then.
