My Stats + Where I Applied to College | Application trips!
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So just a little bit of background, I guess I applied to five schools of who I have notes on a cold because I am Alzheimer's. Um what, like my checklist? Kind of look like what? I was really, really wanted. I'm so for my stats on the took the s a t. I did not take the a c t because I really does it. I was really proud of the mass because I'm like a math lesson that kind of struggled with more than English. Just how it worked out, I guess, But like, I don't really care too much about me. You see to you score because, um, I'm not a good test taker, first of all, Like, tests were never really my thing. Let your intelligence be in the work that you produced throughout your whole high school career, Derek, that you do outside of school, that shows a lot more about who you are. So that was the only way to G p A. Which is really good. I love my GP. I really worked hard, so it was like I was proud to put that gpm like all of my application, Um, I took six AP classes throughout my entire high school career. I took ap u S history AP Global History um, ap, um, English language AP English Literature AP Psychology and a peacock A bee Just a lot of AP classes, Um, but I really wanted my transcript and my resume to have, like, a really rigorous course load so that colleges could see that I am really trying to apply myself as much as possible. If you're worried about like your s a t being a little bit like lower than what you wanted or, like, lower than what? Um, like your top school or whatever is asking for then taking those rigorous courses throughout your whole high school career and doing well in those courses like that speaks to them a lot more than just your essay to score. So that could really help set you apart even if your s a t score a c t score, we're locking a little bit. So if you can take more rigorous courses throughout your high school career, definitely do. So I really wanted that ratio to be like 25 to 1, like 20 to 1. What methods you use, and that would really, really help you when. Think about going to school New York in New York City. To be specific is that there really is no big campuses. You know, you can't really have a huge campus in the middle of Manhattan. So I really wanted to go to school in Manhattan, and I knew, and I needed that school have really good sense of community. I think it's an amazing school, but I just didn't really get that feeling of community there, which I could be totally wrong. It was just one tour that I kind of judged it off, but I kind of felt like everyone was just like walking like they were on their own and, like, not really like, doesn't talk to other people. So I applied to the New York City campus, and I'm proud to say that I got it, sold them just really, really raising it cool. I I wasn't expecting it at all, so I was really happy about it. I was also pie for five year programs, which means you get a bachelor's degree out of master's degree at the end of the five year, which is really good, because you I'll go into the work field in schools with already a master's degree, and I have to go back to school. It's like when I applied for and I got into their five year program, which is really cool, And I also got into their 11 more honors college, which is really, really cool, like separate honors institution in the Delphi. That honors college is like, really focused around global work and, like they study abroad and they engaged in global projects like the world, I think is amazing and so cool. Um, I got it the lobster and the guys to their honors college, too, and also apply for childhood education, which was really cool and fun and fresh. Oh, my God, I got in to her childhood education, which is really cool. Yeah, I got out of college as well, which is really exciting. I know some people really rely on with their first term grades for senior year. I really love like what PE stands for and how the hell should emphasis on, like career building like, um, obviously that you go to college to start your career. There's like such an emphasis on, like getting that real world experience that I loved, and I felt like that's really what I wanted to do. I just want to jump right in, and that's kind of like everyone's mind setting pace, which was really cool. Um I briefly touched upon in the beginning of the video how I really wanted that sense of community, and that's literally all I felt when I was a pays. Everyone's like, so friendly to each other and like you kind of knew everybody, and it was just really, really nice to see that. Since I'm doing childhood education like that's not really a popular major for the campus. So I know my classes are gonna be small like, especially in like my junior year is when we really start getting into like the meat, I guess of home mind agreeing curriculum. It's a move in earlier, like there's so many little things like that which were, um, which are offered to me through the honors college that I really couldn't pass up. She's the sweetest or whatever and was already explaining to me like how they're gonna break down my five years of Payson like, um, having to go in that pace path, which is another thing that really drove me in a pace was that pace path that's like individualizing cater to you, and I will be forming on the campus. I'm really gonna try to stick to a dedicated schedule of posting.
