Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: i got nothing here
except that i graduated from a HBCU - historically black college/univ --- hopefully my tops schools will pity me and ACCEPT ME
even if its just to fill the diversity quota
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: i studied Comp Engr at Temple for 3 semesters prior going to study Math/Physics at Lincoln. While at Temple, I partied wayyyy too much, got bad grades....woke up one day and turned my life around, transferred to Lincoln to focus on my studies and actually managed to succeed so far
-- GPA at Temple: 2.26, lots of D's and a couple F's. I also bummed the GRE Math
