I am in the process of applying to Cornell as a transfer (psychology major) and not used to the extensive application process so just want to make sure I've got everything all squared away. If you've applied to Cornell this year or at some point and are actually familiar with their process, help me out here. Yes, I see all the requirements on their website, but it's great to have a real person confirm what I'm doing because the Common App confuses me.
The Common App itself:
Completed personal information
Completed everything that applied to me under academic history (just not the standardized tests because you don't need to submit those as a transfer)
Under supporting info: completed experiences and achievements, but did not add any documents as none of them seemed to apply to anything Cornell is asking for?
Under program Materials: I see things like resume, catalog course descriptions, college and high school transcripts, personal statement, and writing sample. Do I need to submit any of these? I am having my transcripts mailed directly to the school instead...and do I need to add a personal statement and writing sample and what not?
I am working on getting my academic recommendation, in the recommendation tab.
I have answered all the questions and am working on writing my essay for "Tell us what you'd like to major in at Cornell, and why or how your past academic or work experience influenced your decision, and how transferring to Cornell would further your academic interests." though, this is the ONLY writing prompt I see under the "questions" tab, should there be another? I am applying to the college of arts and sciences so maybe that is it.
I am working on getting:
I have had both high schools I've attended and my one and only college I'm attending mail transcripts already
I have completed the NACAC application fee waiver form
I have yet to complete the online College Scholarship Service on collegeboard
This is all I can think of that needs to be completed. I hope I'm right. Let me know if there are any gaps, sorry I know this is a lengthy post.
