    Hey cornellcouture, I am thinking of transferring to Cornell for Fall 2019 (if they let me in, LOL). It's nice to have somebody around to discuss about the transfer.

    I’m looking to transfer for the fall 2019 at as well from California. I’m not 100 percent sure though as to which of my ECs or other credentials I should put in the application. I have an old boss who is currently the ROTC commanding officer. Does that help? Thanks

    Prospect Fall 2019 transfer here.

    Applying to more than one college so really building an essay bank and going off that. Sort of a bad idea but will refine them to each one as time goes by.

    Which schools are you guys applying to? CALS here

    Still in early drafts part though. Wishing everyone good luck.

    I'm also applying to Cornell as a Fall 2019 transfer! I'm a biology major at a New Jersey community college right now. I don't know which Cornell college I should apply to. Most of the E-mails from Cornell that I received were from CALS so I'm leaning more towards that one.

    Does anyone know if we apply for Fall 2019 and are denied if we can apply for Spring 2020 as well?
  • SnekfestSnekfest Registered User Posts: 21 Junior Member
    SMDH, we already counting on getting rejected before the deadline even closes. C'mon guys we need optimism! Especially at Cornell LMAO
  • FaexpopuliFaexpopuli Registered User Posts: 23 Junior Member
    When should we begin writing? I'm planning to apply to about 10 schools. Would it be enough if I begin to write essays at Winter Break?
  • SnekfestSnekfest Registered User Posts: 21 Junior Member
    @Faexpopuli Depends on your current courseload I think and other factors like how many "Why us" essays you have. Personally, already wrote about 80% of the essays and still in draft mode.

    The one thing I would worry about doing ASAP is the financial aid/ CSS profiles to be honest if you will need assistance.

    Hey folks, I'm a freshman at Wabash College thinking of transferring to Cornell for Fall 2019. Mid term grades reflect a 4.0 gpa. Hope I can keep that up!
    ECAs include:
    Staff writer for The Bachelor
    Sales club
    Global Ambassador for College Admissions
    2 on-campus jobs
    International student's association
    Mentor for College Mentors for kids

    I'm gonna be applying to CALS, seeking for heavy financial aid ( I can only afford to pay $6-7k a year max). So yeah that's my background. Any of you wants to share yours maybe?
