Transferring to Princeton from another university

Is this a real possibility?

I go to NYU and have a GPA of about 3.9, I could've gotten a 4.0 if I hadn't been lazy

I just finished my freshman year, I don't have as many extra-currics as I should have, but that will change next year. ( I was only involved with 1 club, and I had about 50 hours of volunteer service)

If I get a 4.0 next year after 1st semester and during mid terms of Spring 2012 and improve my extra-currics by volunteering substantially more and perhaps starting my own club, will transferring to Princeton, or any Ivy for that matter, be a real possibility?

BTW I would be transferring at the end of my Sophomore year.

Does anyone have any experience, stories about transferring to an ivy or friends who have done this?
