I recently read that Harvard accepted around 20 transfer applicants this year after putting the kibosh on the transfer program due to space constraints. I want to apply next year for admission for the fall, 2011 semester as a juniorr. Please help me figure out what I need to do to in order to be accepted.

Reasons for transfer: been in the city my whole life, change of scenery would be nice,
more traditional college feel (residential college system), I want a larger selection of majors that arent all necessarily engineering, hopefully, better financial aid...
No hooks ...
Do I stand a chance? If not, how could I better my chances?
Also, any aspiring transfers, what are your rationalizations for wanting to transfer?
