Chances for Spelman Posted on 07-07-2008
ashgilly
Gallatin, TN
ACT- 26 (taking it again in hopes of raising it to a 28-30) SAT- Haven't take it yet. GPA- LOW (3.0) Classes- Eight Adavanced Placement classes under my belt, by the end of my senior year. Passed all with no less than a C. 3 Dual Enrollment classes Extracurricular Activity- Mock **** for two year, Model United Nations, Youth Leg., Volunteer work at the local hospital, Not to mention all of the extra work I do to help my community (cleaning parks, volunteering at a summer camp for the youth) A plethora things I do at my church with the YPD (Young People Department). . . Essay writing skills are through the roof according to every english and history teacher I have ever had, and it improves more and more and the years roll by. -sighhhhhhhhh- I'm so nervous, because Spelman is my DREAM COLLEGE. It would absolutely crush me if I weren't accepted. I really need some input on things Spelman looks for in a young black woman. I know it is highly competitive to get into Spelman. I can't wait til see what the future holds for me.

So this thread is so awesome so far. But my application process for Spelman has been not so awesome so far. Okay so about me. - I basically didnt take HS seriously even though I'm pretty genius lol for like my past 3 years -I got a 26 on my ACT the first time -- i want a 29 ( i can get it) - I have over 300 hours of community service -I'm the President of my chapter of Top Teens of America - I am SUPER active in school church & my community Since I've been applying to schools I basically put together a resume of all of my activities honors scores and grades.... Spelman is my dream school & last week i went to a college fair where i knew they would be. I explained how my GPA wasnt as high as it should be but how many qualities I have that make up for it ... the admissions rep asked to see my resume flipped through it and went directly to my transcript. THEN She giggled under her breath.... OMG it was SO embarrasing & it making me question my decision to apply ..
she giggled? wowwwwww and what did she say to you after that? my gpa isn't all that gravy either, but there is only a handful (maybe 3 or 4) who can honestly say they took more challenging classes than me. . . at one point my schedule looked like this: 7:00 a.m.- AP Biology, 1st block-Anatomy and Physiology Honors, 2nd block AP English Lit, 3rd block European History AP, 4th- office worker. . . I mean, my gpa will probably only be a 3.0, but the classes I took, my community service, extracurricular activity, and drive and determination, must be taken into serious consideration. . . giggle at me all she wants, lol... plus, I think I'm setting up an interview with them, so they can know why I did so poorly my freshman year (two very close deaths, one being sibling). . . laugh all they want, but Ima make them not want to deny me. . .

haha you too, girl i have an outstanding resume i was in so much school functions, community church you name i was there but then my mom got cancer and i was forced to take care of her i don't have any F's, but see if you can retake most of those classes like i did and it brought my GPA to a 2.7 still working on it but if you believe and strive you can get accepted p.s. don't stress yourself out it'll make things worst believe me i've been there done that
