Help plz! Denied/Academic Expectations Transferring

edited February 2010 in Purdue University
My application for transferring is denied: Denied/Academic Expectations Does not meet the academic expectations for the requested program of study.
I am a international student in University of Arizona and I am a sophomore.
Here is my materials:
GPA 3.7 in UA
TOEFL 93
NO SAT because I have finished 24 credits in college
GPA 3.9 in High School
I didnt send the letters of recommandaton because they said letters are not required
The major I applied for is EE
Is the grade lower than their requirements of EE? and Should I apply for another major, not engineering?
I want to go to Purdue sooooooo badly
Please help me find the reasons
Thank you!!!!!!

    You need to talk to admissions directly. They're the only ones who can tell you whether or not you qualify for another program offered at the university.

    Sounds like you just didnt meet these requirements:
    http://admissions.purdue.edu/Admissions_Criteria/Expectations_for_Tra.html

    "Transfer students interested in entering first-year engineering must have completed and earned at least a 3.0 (4.0 scale) in the following coursework:

    1. Calculus I
    2. Chemistry I or a calculus-based physics course
    3. At least two of the following - Chemistry II, CS programming (C language), Biology I, English composition, a communications class or other humanities course.

    Transfer students interested in being admitted directly to a specific engineering discipline must have completed all of the following college-level coursework and have the necessary GPA.

    * Calculus: 2 semesters
    * Chemistry: 1 semester
    * Science Elective: 2nd semester of chemistry, OR
    1 semester computer science (programming content only)
    * Physics (calculus-based): 1 semester
    * English Composition: 1 semester
    * Speech or Humanities: 1 semester"


    If your close to completing this list I would do so then transfer.
