So most state schools - bar some selective ones like UCLA Mich UTAustin - like Maryland usually just focus on GPA. The more selective schools want extracurriculars too. The very selective are very very difficult to get in as they have a lower than most ivy admit rates on transfer applicants. Your profile should essentially be an ivy-caliber application adjusted to community college.
