Can I tranfer into Northeastern University?

hijasonherehijasonhere Registered User Posts: 3 New Member

I am Jason, an freshman international student in college (college ranked around 70th in the US).
What chance do I have to get into Northeastern University (business major) with the following grade? Do I have any chance over 50%?

Current GPA: 3.38 (Only first semester)
Business Stat: A
Macro-Econ: B+
Psychology: A-
Writing 100: B+
World Politics: C+

I will at least get around 3.8 GPA during second semester because I have 4.0 currently.

High school GPA: 3.34
9th: 2.97 10th: 3.29 11th: 2.82 12th: 3.92

New SAT score: 1280

I am trying to transfer for the sophomore year in Northeastern University. I will not be sending my second semester grade because I am not done. Do I have any chance of getting in?

    They will look at your high school GPA and test scores since you are a freshman. Northeastern would be a reach.

    You would be better off waiting a year.

    Do you think I have a chance for Spring 2019? If I have a 3.8 - 4.0 GPA for second semester and get similar grade during first semester of Sophomore year.

    Why do you want to transfer to Northeastern?

    Where are you now?

    Why have you asked the same exact question in three separate posts, and why is one of these posts under "Nepal"? Are you from Nepal or was that a mistake? Why was your high school GPA going up and down so much?

    I am using this website first time. So, I have no idea how to use it.

    I want to transfer to Northeastern because I like to major in business management and finance, and its business major is better than our school's. Also, I have many friend in Northeastern University.

    I am studying international relations in American University. I think AU has great reputation for the international relations major, but I just hate learning international relations.

    My GPA was changing because I thought 3.34 and 3.3 is pretty much the same :D

    @Eric738377 How did you get into a college without a GED? In your posting history you state that you were "kicked out" of high school. Depending on the reason for that you may be denied. If a criminal offense that may exclude you from consideration.
