Hi there! So I know that this is a huge long shot but I'm a communications major at the University of denver looking to transfer. I am mainly looking for more diversity (moving from LA to Denver has been rough)

I know that these schools are insane reaches but I am a strong writer and just thought I would throw it out there, If not Denver is a great place to be .

I am looking at NYU (mcc program), Northwestern, Boston University, Cornell, and UPenn.

my stats are: 3.8 gpa, (dont have to submit my sat scores since I'm transferring as a Junior, and a 3.7 unweighted gpa in highschool.

EC's I am currently an officer in my sorority, I volunteer 8 hours a week in a 3rd grade classroom, I volunteered with the obama campaign as well as the first debate (which was held at DU), I am in the kayaking club, I had a summer internship doing costuming for movies with Universal Pictures in Los Angeles, and I had a summer job at the Hollywood Bowl. In Highschool I was vice president of 2 clubs, I won the highest community service award at my school, and I was president of my chapter of National Charity League. I was in showchoir in High School and performed on Dancing with the Stars and performed in the 2011 Chinese New year parade in Hong Kong.

I know that the whole thing is a long shot, but I thought I'd give it a try
