ddavis05 Posted May 3, 2013 Share Posted May 3, 2013 Hey there folks. I'm applying to the LEAP program for either the summer or fall of 2014. I wanted to know how likely is it for me to get into this program with my background. I have some good attributes and some not so good ones as well when it comes down to my academic record. I graduated from a small, private, liberal arts school in 2005 with a bachelors of science degree in Applied Mathematics and a gpa of 2.78. The good: A average for Calculus, A- for Calculus II and Digital Electronics, B Average for Applied Math/Modeling and Sim. The so-so: B- Averages for: Calculus III, Differential Equations, Optimization, Prob & Stats II. The not so good: C+ for Prob & Stats I, C for Linear Algebra, and C- Computer Science I(Java programming). The ugly: D averages for Physics and Numerical Analysis. Furthermore, I attempted to get a Master's in Statistics after I completed my Bachelors, but couldn't stay in because my gpa was below 3.0. (I made B's and C's for both semesters.) Four years later, I took a graduate level Euclidean Geometry class and earned a B in it. My past occupations includes three years as an analyst for a consultant firm and four years in education as either a math teacher or math tutor. I'm currently on a short term assignment that ends in May. For the last few years since the recession started, I've been struggling financially. I see this as an opportunity to change careers and do something for a living that sparks my interests and put me on the path to the middle-class lifestyle. I have various interests. Part of me wants to get involved in the green energy industry and join the fight for sustainable energy. Another part of me wants to get involved with hardware design and revolutionizing computer hardware and software. Excuse the length of my post. I'm curious to know how early should I apply and what are my odds of getting in? I also want to know more about the financial aid and Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
