Where to transfer? Rate my stats please!
Hey guys, this is my first post here since the end of the freshman admissions process back in March....wow it feels weird to be back here haha.
Anyways, I'm a Freshman Finance major at UIUC looking to go to a school in a more urban environment (preferable east coast/west coast). I thought I could manage myself in the Midwest for a little longer (lived in the Chicago suburbs for about 8 years) but I just can't. The weather and environment seriously kill my morale (don't worry that's not the only reason guys).
Stats from HS:
3.7/4.0 UW, 4.2/4.0 W
5 AP classes
Tons of leadership + volunteer experience (varsity sports + congressional volunteer)
College (so far):
(Pledge) Committee man at my fraternity (yes I know it would suck to join a fraternity and then transfer, but who knows if I'll even get accepted anywhere/actually decide to leave)
Applicant for IBC (Illinois Business Consulting)
Persian Cultural Assoc. Executive
Don't know what else would be useful info.
I'm a fantastic essay writer and an even better interviewee.
Applied to 9 schools for Freshman year and got accepted to 7 (only didn't get into UCLA or Berkeley).
Chose UIUC mostly for in-state tuition.
Thinking about transferring to NYU, UPenn, USC, or Georgetown (with Georgetown being #1 on my list).
Anyone have good recommendations for what I should do if I want to transfer/where to transfer?
Like I said I really want to be in an urban environment and still receive a great education.
