Re-apply CAS for Transfer Spring 2020?

MagicKingGuardMagicKingGuard Registered User Posts: 7 New Member
Hi everyone. I have just been rejected for CAS Transfer Fall 2019. I am not sure why I am rejected in the first round, but still I am planning for reapply for Spring 2020. I am just curious whether it is possible.
(BTW does intended major matters? Will indicating CS as intended major ruin my chances?)

    Here is some Cornell Transfer data from 2015

    Transfers by the NumbersFall 2015
    New Transfer Students
    Number of enrolling transfer students 523
    Women 271 Men 252
    From two-year institutions 106
    African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American transfer students 162
    International transfer students 62
    New York State transfer students 188

    *2014 New Transfer Students by College
    Agriculture and Life Sciences 262
    Architecture, Art, and Planning 10
    Arts and Sciences 68
    Engineering 36
    Hotel Administration 61
    Human Ecology 46
    Industrial and Labor Relations 108

    * includes spring semester transfers. Cornell typically enrolls 80–120 new transfer students each spring semester. Not all Cornell colleges/schools enroll transfer students for the spring semester.

    Students at Cornell can major in CS either in Engineering, or in Arts and Sciences.
    While Cornell enrolls 500-600 transfer students a year, only about 100 are accepted to Arts and Sciences or Engineering.

    So, with only about 100 spots, applying to transfer into CS or, for that matter any engineering or Arts and Sciences major, at Cornell is much more difficult than Cornell's overall transfer acceptance rate makes it appear.
