Can I transfer to Cornell after 3 years cc

<p>I'm approaching my second year of cc and I've changed my major from a social science to Math. The prereqs for transfers that I don't have done yet are 1) multivariable calc and 2) linear algebra. </p>

<p>This Fall I am taking Calc I so in Spring I'll take Calc II and I could take Multivariable in the summer if it's available. In sum I need 4 more math classes with 2 normal semester and 1 summer semester remaining. </p>

<p>I've aced all my math classes (algebra, trig, statistics, calc I for business majors) but I just feel behind on this major. </p>

<p>I'll still apply to Cornell and several other schools for math majors, but if I'm not accepted, can I wait another year to apply again? Some colleges dislike "non-traditional" students.</p>

<p>A concern is I'm not sure what I would really do during the one year gap. I could take the time off to work and just take a few extra classes that personally interest me. This would definitely make me a non-traditional student.</p>

<p>In order to get a Cornell degree, even as a transfer student you need to study at Cornell for at least 2 years; so even with your 3 years of CC college credit, if you transferred to Cornell you would need to study at Cornell for 2 years minimum.</p>

<p>^ That would be fine :)</p>

<p>An extra year would give me more time to complete the calculus series, linear algebra, and differential equations. I just want to know, they don't look disfavorably upon applicants who take 3 years to get to junior status, do they?</p>

<p>As long as your academic record is strong, I doubt it.</p>

<p>In your application though, include an explanation (detailing why it took you three years).</p>

<p>Great, that's good to consider. Thanks I V. </p>

<p>If anyone begs to differ please let us know.</p>
