I am also apply to Brown as a transfer for Fall 2012 admission. I really don't know what to expect, probably because I was rejected by Ivy's as freshman, I find it hard to conquer the fear of reapplying. I actually got the Brown portal status thing set up in early February, and all the materials required are received by Brown. They even have the Decision tab on the status website, even though it says admission is currently not available.
This is my first time using college confidential, and I would like to see if you guys think I have a chance of getting admitted. I also applied to Boston college and Cornell University.
Currently a second year in one of the UC's;
College GPA: 3.756 (senior status)
Business Economics major
Midterm report: all A's
EC: Internship at Merrill lynch(under Vice President of Financial Adviser), Dean of Students Administrative Internship, Academic Internship (teaching at a high school), Student Government (Legislative Rep. & Executive Commission), PKP Ambassador (University of Cambridge, U.K. International Program), Study abroad fair coordinator, used to work at State Farm Insurance as marketing assistant, Zipcar Brand Ambassador, Student Council Representative (housing), work at housing community, Sacramento Internship, involved in two clubs, Golden Key International Honor Society. (I think that's about it.. I'll update if I have more)
Dean's Honors List (all quarters)
Recommendations: 3 total: 2 from my college professors, I think they all like me very much, and another one from a professor at University of Cambridge, U.K. (Judge School of Business), I took his class when I was studying abroad in Cambridge last summer, and he told me that he had a really good impression and wrote positive comments.
I don't think I had an impressive high school record though;
High School GPA: 3.725 unweighted
SAT: 2040 (I did pretty bad on critical reading because I came to the U.S. when I was a freshman in high school, I barely spoke any English, given myself only been learning for English for almost 3 years at the time, I kinda accepted my performance)
EC: President of French Club; Board member for 2 other clubs; ASB student forum; community service; and one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life: volunteered abroad in Kenya, Africa during the summer of my junior year :]
Please feel free to comment, and I would love to keep in touch with you guys
Best of Luck, everyone!
