I will have to keep this brief, I'm going to a portfolio workshop in a few.
Basically, I have GPA of 2.79 and a ton of Withdrawals from a Community College on my transcript due to stupidity. The last semester was because I was willfully withdrawing and dealing with a personal trauma (I had straight A's and B's the two semesters before) and now I've returned and am making straight A's again. However, before that there is a smattering of courses I withdrew from or stopped showing up to because I was an idiot.
My GPA should be 3.12 if I maintain the grades I have now by the end of the semester. I want to transfer to SVA. A representative of the department I want to enter told me to send a copy of my transcript to him via e-mail so he could see what other courses I need to take and I'm kind of scared he'll see all the old withdrawals and say "nope, don't bother"
Any steps I could take to help my entry? Letters of recommendation or a good statement of intent... a glowing portfolio? All of the above? lol
I'm scared! :> but excited. Entry to the program for spring is limited but I'm going to try anyway and if all else fails, next fall.
