i just graduated this year 2003. i never took the sat's and i had a 2.9 gpa. i didn't apply to any colleges because i just moved to this country 3 years ago and i didn't have any info of how to do that, my counselors never talked to me.
Now, im gonna start in a community college (NOVA) which is one of the best community colleges of this country located in the state of virginia VA. Someone told me that if i take classes there for two years, and i keep getting good grades, i can get the chance to go to a good college such as UVA, ODU, etc.
i'd like to know if that is really truth, and what are my chances to get accepted in a good college.
thank you

Generally if you have a good academic record and GPA (grade point average), you can transfer to an excellent college. Talk to your academic advisor or visit your college transfer center for information. Many community colleges have articulation agreements with four year colleges to make the transfer process easier for students.

Good luck! :)
