haha ok. However, NYU tuition is same no matter what (in/out of state), and they do not look at residency for admissions since they are private.
Following my previous reasoning, that is why I did not apply to University of Michigan Ross or University of Virginia McIntire for transfer.
I don't see why UC Davis of all the schools (with out of state tuition factored in) would be that attractive, unless she REALLY wanted to do viticulture/enology or become a vet -of which there are many schools with similar programs that she could probably get into a lot easier, and potentially cheaper.
I am just going there to transfer into an ivy league.
I think this would look better, then going into Rutgers or UConn?
If it isn't which one would you suggest.
It is a good school, I am going to try to get an A in economics for two years,
if I don’t get into an Ivy League then I will go to Berkeley or NYU
I actually know students from both Rutgers as well as UConn attending NYU Stern where I transferred to. Both Rutgers and UConn will give you the same opportunities for transfer as UC Davis. If you want to go to Berkeley, then it'd probably be a better idea to go to another UC first. Which Ivy leagues are you planning to apply to? Princeton doesn't accept transfers, and Harvard is not accepting transfers for a few years to come, just a heads up.
My Grandfather went to Columbia it is way better than NYU. I think if you work hard enough you could get into Columbia and it would open up way more doors for you. My son's good friend is at NYU and he wants to transfer to an Ivy because he says NYU isn't prestigious enough.
I copied this from a facebook answer I just finished but, I think it will answer your questions as well:
Since UC Davis is a selective campus there are few additional difficulties for out of state applicants. Although the out of state minimum GPA is a 3.4 versus a 3.0 (Calculated only from "a-g" courses completed in the 10-11 grades) UC Davis students typically have much stronger GPAs than a 3.4. Be sure to prepare properly by having a strong GPA, lots of "A-G" courses, high scores in the proper exams and strong extracurricular activities. By preparing properly you could be very competitive in our applicant pool; even as an out of state student. It might seem like we are notorious for accepting few out of state applicants; in reality, we receive very few out of state applications compared to in state applications giving the false impression that we don't admit out of state applicants. Be sure to message me with any other questions you might have.
lol collegemom16, a little hostility eh? Of course Columbia is more prestigious than NYU! I would, however, not put much weight on your grandpa's experience from decades ago, but if your son's friend want to transfer I see no problem with that, it opens space for people like me (if he happens to be in Stern.)
Keep in mind that NYU Stern had a transfer acceptance rate of a little over 10% (~115accepted/1100 applicants) total for both Soph/Junior transfers combined.
If you would like to engage in a discussion about this with actual facts rather than hearsay, I would love to speak about it further.
