Applying for a transfer to IVY(S)

Hello everyone !
I am new to College Confidential.
I have heard that this website is a brimming source of knowledge and that, the people here will assist any potential candidate to get the college of their choice.

I have been through some articles(mainly on the Home page of the website) although I have a lot to ask and discuss. :)

I am doing my undergraduation (B.Commerce-2nd year at present) from India and I am pursuing the professional degree for Chartered Accountants simultaneously.

I am aiming for an exciting course in Business Management and for the very same purpose I have decided to prepare myself for the premiere Ivy League.

I attended the best school in the country and intended to go on with my undergraduate learning experience abroad.But due to my own ignorance I didnt take any tests (at the right time) (SAT,ACT). I am aware that ignorance is no excuse, but I have managed to get brilliant scores in CBSE for both, 10th and 12th.
I still look upto getting admission as a transfer student and I am here to discuss any insights that might help me achieve it. I am a believer and I believe in infinite possibilities.

Thank you sooo much for your help(in advance). :)

    You'll need 2250+ SAT scores, letters of recommendation, extra-curriculars at the national/international level, well-written/interesting essays, and even if you have all of these, you have less than a 1% chance of making it. They might take, what? At the very most 10-20 transfers worldwide? You can't really "prepare" yourself for this either, you've either built up these things, or you haven't.

    Which college in India are you in, incidentally?
