| Dec 01 2005 | I transferred in from out of state after my sophomore year at a lesser-known liberal arts college. I had about a B+ average, with my gpa in my major close to a 4.0. I was in a couple clubs, but had real non-academic factors to speak of, although my essay was probably good and unique.
Unfortunate but true: if you are an adequate out of state student, the school seems hard up enough for cash at this point to accept you. I was just a decent student looking for a good school with great skiing, and I found it.
I dropped out of high school, went to community college, and transferred in. My cumulative college GPA is 3.885
