Appealing Academic Disqualification...Feedback on my letter appreciated?

This is my situation : I plan on changing my major from EE to Computer Engineering. I'm 22 years old. I wasted an extra year at my CC because I did not know what I wanted to major in. Then I transfer to UCSD, and have two horrible quarters . I get academically disqualified . I don't have to worry about tuition at all, or taking out loans, but I'm frustrated that I have wasted 2 years of my youth. I'm undergoing the worst time of my life. And btw, I'm not rich at all, just lucky that I'm a part of a military family. Here's what I have. This is my attempt at a "clear and brief personal statement that demonstrates convincing evidence of specific extenuating circumstances." circumstances that no longer impact your future academic performance " My name is (). I'm an Electrical Engineering major I'm writing this letter to appeal my academic dismissal. In my first two quarters at UCSD as a transfer student, I failed to attain a GPA of 2.0 for two consecutive quarters, and regret it. I blame nobody but myself for my poor academic performance, which resulted in me earning a significantly low GPA. My mistakes are attributed to my reluctance to take advantage of the universitie's resources, which I rarely used. On the whole, I did not seek help when I needed it. I did not consult any of my professors or Teaching Assistants during their office hours, and I did not attend discussion sessions. I often studied for several hours every day and night, but felt frustrated when my effort did not generate for me a deeper understanding of the class material. Out of sheer frustration, I gave up when I did not understand key concepts in my programming class, for example. Ultimately, it was a fatal mistake for me to ignore my lack of understanding of key concepts, causing me to fall behind further in my classes. My academic failure has been a valuable learning experience for me. I will make sure to work more closely with my academic advisers and seek assistance when I need it. I realize now that there are instances where I will need to confront my TA's and professors immediately if I'm struggling to understand the material. I'm certain that if I'm granted a second chance ,I will be persistent and utilize all the available tutoring resources on campus to overcome future challenges. I have enjoyed limited success though, in passing my analog circuits and my vector classes, for example, and I know I'm capable of doing well in my future courses. I value the opportunity of getting a college education, and it means a lot to me in my life, because I do have dreams of graduating from UCSD. In conclusion, I thank you for your time and consideration in reading my personal statement. "

Your off to a good start. It does need some editing. I don't think you mentioned wanting to switch majors in your letter though... More
