I am a high school senior with a 2.87 GPA for a-g and like 3.0 for all classes. I am in Pre-Calc and AP environmental science. Ive taken a sem of AP US History and a year of adv. bio. Other than that ive been in main steam classes. I haven’t received my ACT Scores yet but I’m pretty confident in how I did. Im working 20 hours a week at an animal hospital and have been involved in Sea Scouts with a rank of Able ( which means if i join the CG or Navy I’m automatically bumped up a rank). Ive been a youth leader in Scouts for the past year and have sailed at an international regatta that happened to be at CMA. Im a CA resident too. CMA is my #1 choice.
Anyone know what my chances are?
Chances seem pretty good to get in. Its good to get the Pre calc now as you will have a couple calculus class as well as some calculus based classes at CMA. Actually Calc is one of the easier classes. The other ones you took may get credit for regular university classes. Working 20 hours a week will be tough. I used to tend bar on the weekends when attending CMA and it really took a toll. However I had a lot of fun though!
Actually Ive toured the whole campus and TS Golden Bear while i stayed there for a 8 days in McAllister Hall. I believe i don’t have to write an essay for any Major at CSUM due to it being a CSU. However, for MT you may submit a resume of leadership and maritime accomplishments.
Also, i saw two 1953 army T-boats while i was there. My program has the exact same ship( although we maintain it better). Are they used by MT students? Because that would be cool since I’m already familiar with the handling.
If you don’t get in as MT but you do as MET, take as many freshman MT classes as you can, with the intention of transferring to MT ASAP your first semester. Let me know if you get accepted as MET, I’ll clue you in on what to do. Too much to list here…
Eh… You submitted a résumé. Probably the first ever at cma to do that. I am sure you impressed them to be honest. Your grades aren’t the worst I’ve seen on a transfer. I came in with a 3.1. You should be fine…
I got my start in sea scouts as well, compass rose ship 1. I have had a great paying and rewarding career as a tug captian all thanx th the scouts. When I went to school for my lic I was so far ahead of my class already I spent most of my time there helping the other students through all the bs. Don’t waste ur tallents navy ,uscg, merchant marine, anyway u go ya got the golden ticket already. Good luck.
