Engineers are rarely ever accepted because of the specificity of the program, but either way its past the deadline (Oct 1). So...if you submitted your application, you probably know that they are accepted for spring. And if you didn't...then I'd wait until the Fall Transfer period because you missed the deadline =/
I was thinking of applying for next spring (2014)!
Any tips for actually getting in? I have 3.9 College GPA and a 4.1 High School GPA. SATs and ACTs not very impressive but it's been a while (4 years) so maybe I'll retake them.

I'm concerned about my SAT score.
What do you guys thinks?
@tungtied, i spoke to them on the phone and they said not to worry about sending the MT report in a bit late since they understand grades not being in. I'm sending mine hopefully by end of next week which is around my MT time so i'll have a grade for every class.
and i also called and asked about interviews, they said they'll call if they have a specific question about our application (not a positive or negative sign, just to make a better decision on the application)

What do you guys think? Also, does it matter if i only sent one instructor evaluation? Does it matter not sending SATs/ACTs?
Also, cornell emailed me today saying i'm missing some parts of my application (thanks to my advisor who can't seem to meet a deadline apparently lol). Do you think this will affect my application?
If I'm not mistaken, AEM is a CALS major, which has a transfer acceptance rate of ~ 50%. However, I've read around that the AEM program is fairly competitive and might be a little more difficult to get into than just CALS generally.
I've taken physics, but not orgo. I'm not sure when they say "One full academic year of Introductory Biology with labs or Chemistry I with lab and Organic Chemistry I" if they mean you should have staken at least two semesters of bio OR two semesters of chem (chem I and orgo I), or if they mean i need to have taken two semesters of bio AND at least orgo I.
@thefuture101 - i feel like they might be pretty strict about it. I remember reading somewhere in one of their brochures that one of the strongest attributes of a transfer application is that the student will be able to transfer seamlessly into one of their programs. However, if you are qualified everywhere else, i don't see why they might give you too much trouble over it.
