CC-UTD-UT Path

<p>Hello all, I was wondering how my chances stand at transferring into UT with this route.
I will have my Calc courses out of the way, along with micro and macro economics.</p>

<p>4.0 in CC for the year, planning on transferring to UTD for 1 year before I attempt to transfer to UT Business School for junior and senior year and eventually MBA program. Obviously at UTD I would attempt a 3.9 or a 4.0 which should not be a problem.</p>

<p>Does anyone think this would be a good course of action? Or should I try to get on the CAP program before I head to UTD?</p>

<p>I have volunteer hours, 2 years working at a bank, boyscouts (rank under eagle), 11 years of Martial Arts with several years as an instructor, young republicans club and DECA. </p>

<p>Thank you for any advice.</p>

<p>CAP is only offered to incoming freshman, not transfer students. Personally, I would apply for transfer now along with your app to transfer to UTD - if you don't get in to UT, then go to UTD and try to transfer again later.</p>

<p>Can I ask what your reasoning behind transferring to UTD before UT is?</p>

<p>I feel like transferring from UTD would be more meaningful than a 2nd year at CC if it came down to that.</p>

<p>are you going to ACC?</p>

<p>Hes probably goin to a CC in Dallas.</p>

<p>@Ray, school doesn't matter unless its an ivy. Its really all up to your GPA, next is the essays, then the rest. I transferred from a CC after 2 years to McCombs.</p>

<p>Thank you, DenuMx. Would you be willing to let me know your GPA / Extracurriculars?</p>

<p>Quad C? Just wondering :)</p>

<p>(and why not go directly to UTD?)</p>

<p>Whether you attend a CC or a university is irrelevant as long as you have a high enough GPA for transfer. No need to transfer and spend a year plus extra money at UTD when you can just as easily (if not easier) transfer to UT from CC. Especially if you want to transfer into McComb's, you need to concerned with your GPA being a 3.9-4.0, and this can be more easily achieved at a CC.</p>

<p>Could someone confirm whether or not this is true because I was always the impression that the school you attended, whether it be an Ivy or a CC, didn't matter one bit.</p>

<p>school doesnt matter, have you ever met / do you know someone who has transferred from an ivy?(not kids that flunked out etc..)</p>

<p>Most schools will tell you that the school you came from doesn't matter. They want to see how you performed, not how your school performs. Now, I find it hard to believe that they are going to a hold a student with a 3.4 from a CC and a 3.4 from Harvard to the same esteem.</p>

<p>"have you ever met / do you know someone who has transferred from an ivy?"</p>

<p>Ivy League school? No. Notre Dame, Vandy and Rice? Yes.</p>

<p>From the general impressions I got from the kids that transferred, they did didn't do so hot (probably in the 3.0 - 3.3 range) and ended up transferring to decent schools, SMU, A&M and Trinity.</p>

<p>you may be right LonghornDan, but i doubt anyone would transfer from Harvard.(unless they had a family emergency/money issues) </p>

<p>true</p>

<p>I agree with you there. There might be the rare case (i.e. family/ monetary issue), but those are rare i'm sure.</p>

<p>I'm assuming nobody's heard of Luis Duarte? He's a wonderful person, extremely nice and hardworking (so I've heard) student that graduated from my school last year and had to decide between Harvard and UTD.</p>

<p>etceterae, please continue....</p>

<p>He's really inspiring, the people who are shouting "illegal immigrants get everything" in the comments are a-holes.</p>

<p>That's impressive and very noble. I just can't imagine making that kind of sacrifice.</p>
