am feeling a bit anxious about my appplication to uc berk (i find out april 26)and i am wondering if you all can give me your honest opinion on my chances of getting into uc berk
I'm a transfer student from a california community college. this school has a high transfer rate to UC berk.
I'm african american and male.
I'm also considered a re entry student (i'm 30).
I am also a apart of my schools DSS (disabled student services) i have a learnign disability
I work three jobs and go to school.
in spite of what some would deem setbacks I have a 3.3 GPA after several years of study (10 years litterally at the community college level) I am finally ready to transfer---
I have worked extensively in theater and music-- during this time--- working professionally as an actor, singer and dancer. here is a bit of the resume that i posted along with my application.
I have worked as a supernumerary actor for sf opera
I have several principal roles under my belt in college productions and in community theatre productions. I have sang in numerous school groups including several solos with orchestra, and have participated in every vocal performance group at my school (all 5 for at least 2 years one for 5 years) worked as a professional soloist for several churches
I am apart of Uc Berkeley's TAP, Stiles HAll, and Berkeley Experience programs
--so got lots of help on both my transfer essays and they are both quite strong!!! :-)
what do you think are my chances for getting into UC berkeleys Theatre and performance studies degree program?
