Transferring as a Freshman, question and chances? please

hi,

I'm currently a freshman at Colgate with a 3.75 (could be higher I know).
HS GPA: 94
SAT: 2200

What does it take (in terms of grades/ECs/ et cetera) to transfer to a better school, like Vandy, Penn, NYU, USC (CA), Columbia?

Would it help if I had a very compelling reason outside of academics to be at a certain school?
