    Do you think that Cornell would say, "Hey, your final high school grades were crap so we're rescinding our offer," at any time before the submission of our gt applications?

    @quitenervous They might rescind the offer or tell you it's no longer a GT and then put you in the regular pool??

    Has anyone already fulfilled their transfer requirements for Fall semester? If so, for Spring semester are you going to register for classes that interest you or are you going to take classes that might get you ahead for Sophomore year-depending upon if you are in CALS, SHA or ILR, etc.?

    @Pugslife wow you're so lucky haha. My current school makes it hard for me to choose the classes that I want. That is why I have to take one summer course over the summer to complete my requirements. And if were you, I would probably take classes that will keep you on track for the completion of your major.

    @cheto212 if you are applying as a guaranteed transfer, you do not have an essay to complete; however, if you're applying as a non-guarantee then I think the word limit is 650. See below. Good luck!

    Please address the topics below in an essay of approximately 650 words total.

    For human ecology applicants, what classes did you take for the labs requirements?

    Does anyone happen to know which schools offer the guaranteed transfer offer? Specifically, does engineering offer it?
  • PugslifePugslife Registered User Posts: 90 Junior Member
    @3musketeers, unfortunately, I have not seen any engineers with a "GT."

  • cheto212cheto212 Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
    @Pugslife I think Im the "Guaranteed" TO application, since I have a shortened application process. However, human ecology applicants need to respond to this:

    Please use the file upload below to attach a letter/essay to this application that (a) explains your current academic goals, relating them specifically to your intended major; (b) describes how you spend your nonacademic time.


    But no word requirement so not sure how to go about this lol. Any help would be appreciated

    Also does your midsemester grade have to be above the requirements? Or just the final semester grades? Idt it would be fair to judge mid-semester lol
