<p>As an international transfer student, you won't be eligible to receive financial aid. You should check with each individual college to see if int'l students are eligible for aid, but I don't those schools on your list give any aid. While I admire your EC's (I am Pakistan-American myself, my mom is from Islamabad and my father is from Karachi) your GPA is just way too low. Your ACT score is also low, and if you plan on transferring, you should retake your ACT and shoot for a 32+. </p>

<p>I can't really see any of the schools on your list taking you as a junior transfer. I think your best shot is Drexel. Sorry to be blunt, but you need to hear it. In the whole sea of 3.8+ transfers, a 3.51 is really on the low end unless you're a recruited athlete. If you're trying to get out of your school, I think you need to make a realistic list. I would try NYU, BC, Fordham, and maybe other top 50 schools who are transfer friendly. Also for transfers, I think domestic applicants are more favorable. I am not 100% sure on this, but I have been perusing this site (wanting to transfer out of NYU) and this is my personal opinion. Good luck! </p>

<p>PS I hope I didn't sound too harsh, I'm just trying to give you honest feedback.</p>

<p>Hey thanks that actually helps....i have been reconsidering this list actually but u didnt think about NYU because I thought that wouldn't even consider me...and yeah a lot of the top 50 schools give internationals financial coz some of my high school friends are in those schools on substantial financial aid.....</p>
