During my freshman year of high school I struggled in many areas of my life including personal, social, and academic. I was in an emotionally abusive relationship, struggling with my self-esteem, and fighting to keep my grades above c 's. Since then I have grown, learned from my experiences and it can all be seen through my transcripts and the friend group I now surround myself with.
I graduated from high school in 2013, and attended James Madison University from August 2013 to December 2014. I began having health problems during the 2014 fall semester and when the semester ended I withdrew from the classes I had taken and returned home on a medical leave of absence. When I returned home, I spent the spring semester focusing on my health so that I would be able to get better and return to JMU. After taking the spring semester off, I decided to work at a landscaping company to help give me something to focus on again. When that went smoothly, I signed up for one summer class at my local community college.
Since being enrolled in college I have been able to maintain a grade point average of a 3.4 or better for the two semesters that I have attended. Through the ups and downs that came with each semester, I have learned the value of putting in hard work and what it takes to achieve something one desires. Additionally, my academic performance has earned me spots in both the Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society and the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society. Furthermore, this summer I was able to intern with a pipeline design company, EN Engineering.
Although my grades were not always consistent, I never earned less than a B for a final grade in my English courses. Often my instructors privately told me that my papers were the best in the class and shared my work with others. My writing secured me a free trip to London and Paris with my business club as well as my acceptance into multiple colleges. I am certain my extracurricular activities, including cheerleading, volleyball, community service projects, fundraisers and employment also played a vital role in these accomplishments. Of all the schools to which I applied, only VSU waitlisted me probably because of my phobia about standardized examinations, which caused me not to perform as well as I should have on the SAT.
My high school is highly competitive and I’m grateful that I was surrounded by such wonderful peers and teachers. Completing high school, I received 12th place out of almost 450 students, with a weighted GPA of 4.244. Despite my hard course load,
My grades dropped drastically because I didn't attend school a lot, because I had no way of getting there or sometimes I didn't wanna go,so I just didn't go. Later CPS got involved when she went to jail for a few days . My dad ended up getting full custody of us and that's when I started my freshmen year at Gila Ridge. I now go to school everyday and I still struggle a little bit but my grades have improved a lot. From this setback i've learned not to just settle for
I am writing this statement to explain my undergrad GPA. While attending Norfolk State University my GPA dropped my sophomore year because of my involvement in our school band and dealing with stress from been away from home. My involvement in band took time away from my studies; once I realized this I stop participating in band and concentrated on my studies. As my transcript will show once I stopped band my GPA slowly raised to a 2.7. I reached this GPA by working hard in subjects that were difficult to me such as mathematics and working with my teachers pass the class.
I also lettered in academics last year. School has mattered more to me, as I get older. I am starting to care a lot more about my grades over the past 3 years of High School. I may not have the grades that everyone else has, but I always do my best. I’m never afraid to ask for help.
Additionally, having great attendance has been known to be linked to higher grades. Once you are in the class, you are able to engage and pay attention to the lesson which will help you out when it comes to
I finally received the support that I needed to do well in school. I attended class every day and consequently, my grades improved. In middle school, I was a student in the Pre-Medical Science Program. In high school, I in the Equine Pre-Veterinary Academy. I enrolled in AP, AICE, and dual-enrollment courses.
My time at Plainville High School has been the best four years of my life. I have always had a strong work ethic and I put 100% into everything I do; whether it be in the classroom or outside. My grades have been impeccable my past 4 years. I’ve maintained a 4.0 GPA while enrolling in AP and honors classes.
And must I still point out that I still have the ceiling to achieve a 3.0cumulative GPA when I graduate, with a average of 3.6 per semester. I will also like to get the chance to address what happen during the summer. It was a honest mistake, I had all my work turned in. Until the last ten days of the class. I was in a difficult time in my life, with a death of a longtime friend at the time.
Getting exceptional grades has been very important to me and the support of my family has made this goal attainable. My family made my dream of graduating first in my class achievable. While I participate in many hours of co-curricular activities throughout the school year, I have excelled in field hockey, basketball,
Threw out my high school career, I have been at Camelback High School within the Montessori program that is relatively new to the school. I wake up early (around 5am) and take the bus everyday to school because I choose not to drive. I have thought about quitting more than once, but decided to stay because I strive for completion. I also pride myself on my honesty. The truth is I always do the bare minimum but I also attempt the extra mile whenever
