Well I've been set on applying and I want to know how good of a shot I have :/ Maybe I can get a little insight here
I'm a junior at Pomona College (not Cal Poly Pomona, the actual Pomona College) majoring in Astrophysics. I've wanted to go into game design/game balance basically my entire life (even though I never really realized I could until about 6 months ago), and I feel like League would be an amazing place to get an internship- I'm currently Div 3 Platinum, played over 4000 games (around 2k hours or so I think), along with plenty of other gaming experience. I run the team coordination for my college team (not match set up, but actual in game strategies and stuff). I've spend plenty of time analyzing and thinking through stuff, while discussing game balance with my friends constantly. I've also created a pretty sweet code that (not including abilities) pretty accurately models damage output of all AD Carries (python code, I really want to release it to the general public but I'm not sure how to go about doing it and I want some people to edit it for me =P). I don't think my grades are exceptional (around a B average) but I think I'm incredibly passionate about the game and I put so much effort into the things I love to do (like League). I also live about an hour away from Santa Monica, so I'm pretty close right now.
I guess I just want to know if I have a shot. Would someone with my qualifications at least get an interview?
