    @CornellAEMplease So show me the stats "out there". I have yet to see anything with those numbers for Dyson, and in fact I actually called admissions and they said that the business program is their most competitive application pool. And your username gives you no authority or any more knowledge on the matter lmao

    Good point. I didn't realize your name had AEM in it. My apologies. Please notify Dyson that they are misleading prospective applicants with the following data. We owe you a debt of gratitude for your incredible insight, Mr. AEM.

    One last point, if you are stating the transfer acceptance rate into AEM is 25% (which is grossly high) you must also eliminate transfer option students from that mix.

    Yeah 15-25% for AEM doesn't sound right. If I had to guess I would say anywhere between 5-8% but hopefully someone can pull up some verified stats of AEM transfer rates

    @jpug13 I think you have a great chance to get in!! Just dont forget to state the detailed reasons why you transfer/what do you want exactly in cornell. Cuz I feel like risd is such a top school that no one would question your artsy side but rather the motivation to transfer.

    Hello there everyone! I transferred into the College of Arts and Sciences as a sophomore last fall. As I find myself awake at this late hour at the behest of the tea I foolishly drank a few hours ago, I will endeavor to provide some assistance.

    First, for those of you who received a Transfer Option as I did: The best (i.e. least anxiety-inducing) way to think of the Transfer Option is as a conditional offer of admission. As long as you are able to produce a record of achievement in college consistent with that of your high school career, you can take the place Cornell already has marked for you. The admissions committee would not have granted you a Transfer Option if they did not believe you capable of succeeding at Cornell, so please try not to worry - and enjoy your freshman year at whatever institution you attend!

    Second, more generally: From my own experience and firsthand accounts from friends across the colleges, I feel that I can safely define Cornell's academics overall as intellectually challenging, yet far from impossible. Some courses will be more difficult than others, certainly, but there is little need to fret that you will be lag behind your peers after a year or two spent elsewhere. Yes, professors do award As and yes, you will be the recipient of some of them. If you enroll in one of the larger colleges, it is unlikely that the other students in your classes will know that you are a transfer student unless you tell them.

    And lastly, for the moment: I would urge you not to stress over the particulars of your GPA or your achievements. To search for logic in the admissions process is to search for photons in a black hole - if you tweak the math, it may be possible, but you will most likely end up with nothing but a headache and a sense of inadequacy. It is fine and good to pay some attention to the statistics, but please remember that you are far more than a few numbers and a couple of paragraphs on a page. Save yourself the deep anxiety I had when I stood in your place last year. I love Cornell - the diversity of its students and faculty, the resources available, the absolutely fascinating classes, and yes, I even have a soft spot for the snow - but I cannot tell you why I was accepted. I do not mean to imply that I am inherently unworthy of my place (though I sometimes feel that way) but rather that I do not understand what it was about my application that drove the admissions committee to give me a Transfer Option while gracing a dear friend of mine (with nearly identical grades and significant accolades for her extracurricular science work) with a rejection letter. By the same token, I cannot readily explain why Johns Hopkins accepted this same friend's application and rejected mine, or why Yale declined to admit either of us in favor of a peer with comparable achievements. Journalists, students, and conspiracy theorists alike have their ideas about what happens behind closed doors, but it is a largely futile exercise to wonder. If Cornell's admissions committee does not recognize your talent and potential, prove them wrong by working to your fullest ability at another institution.

    I know that all this may sound ungenuine - why did this person, you may be thinking, choose to look at college confidential from the comfort of their Cornell dorm room? To be honest, I promised myself for Lent (yep, I'm one of them Catholics) that I would try harder to think beyond myself, and today I remembered this website. There are enough stressful things going on at this moment in time, from the global level right down to each of our personal lives, to wonder if we measure up to this nebulous standard of collegiate worthiness.

    I will check this thread tomorrow morning (or really later this morning) in case I can answer any questions.

    Fare you well.

    Please note that currently the biomedical engineering major will not entertain transfer applications from students enrolled at other colleges and universities.
