***Official Cornell Class of 2016 Spring Transfer Thread

Hello everyone, I know it may be a bit early to start a thread for spring transfer, but it is always good to start early isnt it :) Okay I will share my stats later when more people are here. But I already got a question: is ILR a *Other* academic interest option if using the Cornell apply system? Got any ILR transfer here?

    I am currently a sophomore at the University of Oregon looking to transfer to Cornell's ILR school this coming spring. I Let me know if you think I have a decent shot.

    Cumulative GPA: 3.80

    Major: Business Administration-Finance
    Minors: Economics, Mathematics

    *Accepted into the 2-year Honors Business program at the University of Oregon (highly selective and only the top 35 business students each year are accepted)


    *UO College Republicans (going on 3 years of membership, and served as treasurer for 1 year)

    *Volunteer in grass roots efforts for local political candidates (summer 2014-Roughly 120 hrs total)

    *Finance Intern-Dennis Richardson for Governor Campaign (July-Nov. 2014) (40 hrs/wk)

    *Finance Intern-Dr. Monica Wehby for US Senate Campaign (August-Nov. 2014) (15 hrs/wk)

    *Victory Office Intern-Republican National Committee (August-Nov. 2014) (15 hrs/wk)

    *Café Worker-University of Oregon Fresh Market Café (April 2014-October 2014) (15 hrs/wk---but not in the summer)

    *Promote Oregon Leadership PAC-Door-to-door director (September-Nov. 2014) (30 hrs/wk)

    *Wells Fargo Job Shadow Program through the UO Business School (Oct-Dec 2014) (1hr/wk)

    *Admin Assistant for the ASUO Finance Committee (Dec. 2014-March 2015) (2hrs/wk)

    *Merrill Lynch-Administrative Assistant (Feb. 2015-Present) (20 hrs/wk)

    *TNT's Hit series "The Librarians"-Recurring Extra (May 2014-Present) (15 hrs/day when booked-about 10 jobs so far)

    *Member of the U of O Financial Management Association (going on 2nd year)

    I have a lot of extra curricular activities, mostly centered around government/politics and also finance/economics, which is why I think that the ILR school would be a good fit for me, because it encompasses all of those things. I am paying my own way through college with no help, and have worked/interned anywhere from 20-120 hrs/wk for the last two years.

    I have taken Micro and macro econ, psychology, foreign languages, business & accounting classes, I am finishing up my writing, and I have a class that should fill the Western Intelligence requirement, so I think I have covered all of the bases on pre-rec classes for applying to this major.

    (Also, the ILR school does not require SAT/ACT, so I did not include my score).

    @RedBear2016 I think you have a great shot, you definitively have the grades and EC's, just make sure your essays properly outline your story and is quality material :).

    Personally, I'm looking into SHA and I'm a bit undecided if I want to transfer during Spring or Fall. Does anyone know if you can apply to Fall after applying to Spring without repercussions? And if it's possible to defer a possible admission during Spring to apply during the Fall again?

    (If you would like to chance me, you can check out my stats here: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/cornell-university/1801464-do-i-have-a-fair-chance-sha-spring-transfer.html#latest).
