    UC Berkeley. I've always wanted to go to Columbia but I didn't apply for it in high school because I see little chance of getting in. But I will try this time:)

    Hey everyone,
    I am a first year California community college student. I'm applying as a rising sophomore. Does anyone know if I have a better chance applying as rising sophomore or rising junior?

    Is their application live on the Common App yet? I cannot seem to find it. The only Columbia College is the one in Missouri.

    @jazziscool I think that there are mixed opinions on when to transfer. Since their core is super hard, some people think that applying as a sophomore may be an advantage. Whereas some believe it shows less growth from HS, therefore applying a jr is better. This is just a summarization of what I've seen lurking around the internet and asking around. Overall, I think just making sure all parts of your application are good to go is the best you can do! Also, has anyone started their app, I cannot find it on the commonapp?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently a junior at Cornell who is looking to transfer to Columbia. I'm looking to transfer because I want to switch majors (to do that at Cornell requires internally transferring and for the college that I'm interested in here I'm not even allowed to internal transfer as a junior) and also because I seek a change in atmosphere (I have SAD which means that my mood and ability to concentrate is heavily influenced by the weather/climate and obviously Ithaca is an incredibly AWFUL place to go to school).

    Although I feel that transferring is an appropriate action for me to take at this point, I have 2 concerning issues that will probs negatively affect my transfer chances and I'm not sure if it's still worth pursuing it. First of all, I transferred once to Cornell already so I'm pretty sure that transferring again will be a negative for me in the admissions process. Secondly, my GPA isn't that good (approx. 3.6 currently). I had a 4.0 in my previous college. The discrepancy in the GPAs is mainly due to the difference in location/climate and how it impacts my SAD (the previous college was in the city/good weather, etc).


    Given everything that I said above, do you guys think it is even worth applying to transfer to Columbia?

    Thanks in advance! Good luck to everyone!!

    @QueerandHere That is awesome congrats! Is it okay if I PM you? I'm really interested because you transferred as a rising sophomore and I don't know if I have a better chance applying as Junior or sophomore.

    @QueerandHere Hi. I'm currently a college junior at Cornell who wants to transfer. Based on your experience, do you think it is worth it to apply given that I'm already a junior. I would be willing to delay my undegrad education if needed.

    Thanks!!
