Transfer to Yale after Straight A’s Elsewhere?
Question: I am a high school senior, and Yale has always been my dream school. I have a high B average which I know isn’t going to get me in, and my extracurricular activities are good but not amazing. I do attend a really prestigious prep school and could probably have a 4.0 if I’d gone to my local public high school, but I also know there are people in my class who have higher grades than I do who will be applying to Yale, so I’m not optimistic about my chances. So here’s my question: If I attend another college and can get straight A’s there, do I have a decent chance of being accepted to Yale as a transfer after my freshman year or is it better to try to get straight A’s for two years and then apply to transfer?
