College Admissions: Florida State University (FSU) Essay
I am a Senior at West Mecklenburg High School with the desire and the goal of attending your institution in the fall. I have applied, submitted my application fees and my test scores. My test scores were not the highest to meet the minimum requirements for your school but holistically, I am a good student. Hopefully, this letter will provide you with an account of the student that I am along with what was already provided through the application process.
Throughout my high school journey I have experienced highs and lows. Overall I am a good student, Currently, my GPA is a 3.2 and on average my grades are a B average. I complete all my assignments all the time & I show up to class every day prepared and ready to learn. With balancing school and also having a part-time job shows that I am able to balance and maintain focus.
Although I struggle with the standardized test (SAT and ACT), I believe that the anxiety testing brings causes me to not score according to my liking. My score does not provide an adequate testament and analysis of me as a student. My current predicament stands as me being unavailable to retest due to the dates of the test being so far away. The next available test would be in May after the decision day. My super score was an 820 which is not the minimum but it does not define me as a person or a student.
If given the opportunity I will excel in any capacity provided the correct aids are utilized to allow me the chance to prove me the chance to explore. Not only an I good academically I am involved in college prep programs such as TRIO & Communities In Schools, Prom Committee, Student Government & FCCLA.
I hope that this letter has painted a vivid picture of a leader and a worthy candidate for your institution. One who is responsible, committed and determined to succeed in education and in all aspects of my higher level of education and in general.
I look forward to hearing from you as a primary consideration for admission. Based on my research, FSU has an exquisite program in the Carolinas for Criminal Justice and I want to be apart of the best.
