Chance a transfer please

<p>Hi, I am currently attending Stonehill College in Easton MA and going to be applying for transfer admission to Vassar. My reason for transferring is that Stonehill is not challenging enough and it hurts my chances at being accepted in medical school.</p>

<p>College Record 1st semester:
Biology - A
Gen Chem - A
Calculus - A
Honors History - A-
Honors Literature - A-
Total GPA: 3.9
Next semester likely to have a 4.0</p>

<p>High School stats:
SAT 1300/1600 (650 in both)
uw GPA ~3.7, w GPA ~4.5
rank: 29/400+ students (top 8%)
All honors and AP courses
5 in AP bio and psych</p>

<p>Was asked to TA for both my biology and gen chem classes next year so my recommendations will likely be very good from those professors, had the highest grade in my chem class and 2nd highest in biology.</p>

<p>HS EC's:
various volunteer service / clubs.
member of Crohn's and Colitis Foundation fund raising committee
National Honor Society
Church Youth Group</p>

<p>College EC's
Premed society
Biology society</p>

<p>Also, throughout High School I dealt with severe Crohn's disease including becoming the 19th person to undergo a stem cell transplant for the disease and having surgery which caused me to miss a lot of school (60+ days junior and senior year each). Because of this I was at a disadvantage because I could not focus on my schoolwork as much as possible. I'm trying to convey this on my application as a reason for the lower than I would like HS stats. Now, after surgery I am healthy and able to focus myself fully on my studies.</p>

<p>Also, I am not applying for financial aid.</p>

<p>Anyways, do I have a chance?</p>

<p>If anyone could give me any opinion on this it would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>You definitley have a chance. I hope you get in. Good luck.</p>

<p>I am trying to transfer in as well.Good luck</p>
