  • Application cycles: 05/31/2014
  • Demographics: Male, 30, Caucasian
  • Home state: Texas
  • Last Active: 05/30/2015
  • Brief Profile: All the stats posted are accurate. I had a few red flags on my application, such as receiving a few W's along the way, and having low grades during my freshman and sophomore year overall (<3.3).

    I also had a dramatic upward trend in my last two years of school. During my junior year and senior year, I received a straight 4.0 every semester.

    My main point is, don't get discouraged if you don't succeed in school at first. For some people, it takes time and maturity before they can actually fulfill their potential. Despite my limitations, I would say that overall I had a very successful application cycle, including acceptance to 2 of my dream schools.
