Thanks for responding
by the way here some more info of me: (if you want anymore, i like questions)
I am 17
and i live in Honolulu, Hawaii
my SAT is
570 for reading
580 for Math
470 for writing (i know-…that is horrible huh, heh!)
my ACT is
26 for composite (23 Eng/27 math/27 reading)
23 for writing
my grades have been a roller coaster- but this year so far I’ve been achieving 3.5s except idk about this quarter heh!
i have trouble with this one teacher, the teacher flunked me the first half of last year in AP chem its my fault I am sure. The rest of my grades last year were fine though. I have this teacher again, but for physics, i didn’t want to take it but my counselor urged me to take physics for ID in college, I’m doing fine, but I’m still struggling, the worst part about it is the fact that i can do physics equations fine, just when it comes down to the life lessons and student teacher making us to rubber band racers i fail! but outside of the class room were fine.
To the guest,
i talked to my art teacher allot, i know hes really helping me, but it seems everything i do “has been done before” he reminds me to keep reading more so that i know what has been done before.
i enter photography contests with him even though i know that has little to do with industrial design-- i just take allot of pictures for fun.
while working on my portfolio i do allot of concepts, things i see everyday and try to make my vision of it. i know my drawing skills are not great and i do sketches, more like concepts; stove tops/ kettles/ lamps/ and ps3 haha! when i fix them to a ‘pleasable’ ill post them up,( a bit later i have a school deadline comin up soon.
thanks again for your knowledge of UC, i am reluctant about my grades, but I’m glad i have another chance!
i will definitely take your advice about the community college over the summer. I am really sure I’ll like industrial design, more product design. I was unsure if i should jump into AoAU in SF and start working on my major immediately or if it is worth more to me in the long run to get into UC and hopefully transfer later to ID later. they set me up with acceptance under “exploration” what is that? haha!
I’m so glad you on this board, are you an ID? I’m glad for your daughter as well, is their any other paths, other good schools i should try for if its not to late, I’m feeling overwhelmed with anxiety… wooh.
thanks again for the help, ill keep ‘me’ posted.
