Default Help me out .

Hey guys, hope you all might be able to help me on something.

I graduated from the 09 batch and will probably be starting uni next year. The thing is my results are quite bad.

Maths: B
Chem: B
Econs: D
H1 Bio : C

Worst of all, my GP got me an E.
I'm scheduled to take the SATs in May..

So.. what are the chances of getting into a university in US/UK with BBD/C/E? :/

Was initially thinking of doing sports science, which seems impossible. So actually open to any decent (average) universities which accept these grades for business..?

your best bet is
- Indiana-kelly (transfer after 1st yr)

others
- Uni of Arizona - Eller
- Mich State
- Arizona State
- Purdue

wanted 2nd chance try community college
ie
- Santa Monica
- De Anza
- Columbia College (if U are looking at UBC-Sauder)

Hi Patryn33, thank you so much for these info! Looked up the abovementioned Universities. They look to be quite good! But still have some questions.. Do they accept these grades? :/ And, what do you mean transfer after first year for Indiana-Kelly? Which means I have to attend another Uni first or something? Please advice

Indiana look at Os more than As if you don't have good As.
U will start out in their general college, study a yr and apply for transfer to Kelly after 1st yr. I know 2-3 ppl that did that, their GPA is around ~3.8 and up.

The other Uni such as Arizona-Eller they used to take ppl with Os, they are changing. No harm trying. ASU-Carey also did that in the past.

Purdue - is like Indiana.

Mich State - Broad; possible. US admission depends on SAT, essay etc.

with your grades U should try a 3-5 Uni and see what U get.

Ditto Patryn

that route is possible , but as a indiana student i would tell you it is not as easy as it seems , i know a 3.8 pointer in poly come indiana trying to get into the B-school and fail

but seriously as a student there it is not impossible to get in, you just have to work hard or be smart

if your both then JC result wouldnt be so bad
