Why Should i be Accept You
High school is a strange time. After three years of trying to develop identity and friends
in middle school, students are expected to mature immediately on the first day of ninth
grade, but I never did this. I never fully realized in the earlier grades how important
high school success, as measured by GPA, would be to my future life, and as a result I am
applying to college with seemingly contradictory measures of my ability to perform
college-level work. If I had worked and studied hard rather than hanging out with friends
and viewing high school as an opportunity to socialize, I would not have to apply to
school with a 1300 SAT and a 2.7 GPA. Had I taken my grades in my earlier years seriously,
I could have been a college's dream candidate.


This year I have made an earnest effort to improve my work ethic. My grade point average
is rising and my study habits are improving. However, after performing poorly for three
years, my GPA cannot reflect the transformation I underwent at the start of this year.
Dedicated to making something of myself, I finally matured and am now trying to lessen the
consequences of my past actions. Armed with my new attitude and my understanding of the
extreme importance of earning good grades to signal my capacity to work responsibly, I
assure you that I will never revert to the student I once was.
