First question-How is the Economics and Business schools at CMU for Undergrads?

Second question-How is the transfer acceptance rate?

    1. Uh.. amazing?
    2. Depends on space. Almost 100% for early transfers and harder as you go on due to space.

    I think Bieu203 is talking about transferring from another university, not from another school from within CMU.

    Getting into any top-tier school as a transfer applicant is hard. You need to have something that'll really make you stand out, even if you're transferring from another top-tier school.

    Tepper does not allow external transfer ( from other colleges) though HSS does and you can transfer to Econ and then either stay there or transfer to Tepper. However if you aren't transferring in your freshman year I would say forget it since if you are in your junior year the Tepper transfer will be almost impossible.

    Tepper is the school of Business I would assume

    Im transferring from UCONN because I didn't get into my first tier choices so UCONN was my best choice so now I'm trying to get into a better school although UCONN is not bad. (I won't use that as my reason for transferring when writting to these colleges lol)
