Chances at UCs as an Out of State Transfer?

<p>Im currently at Lafayette College in PA. and i hate it. with a passion actually. Anyway, Im applying to transfer next fall semester (Fall 07) to somewhere witha beach.</p>

<p>My Top Choices are:
UCSB**, UCB, Whittier, UNC Wilmington.</p>

<p>The Colleges i was accepted into last year were:
Middlebury (couldnt afford it)
Mary Washington
Lehigh (Waitlisted)</p>

<p>Maybe that gives you some idea as to what my grades were like in HS.
I Live in NY... so i know a lot of the UC schools will be against me in that.</p>

<p>HS grades:
Rank: 33/255
Average (we didn thave GPA): 96.5</p>

Junior Yr: Latin, Physics, Pre Calc, AP English Literature, AP US History... i forget the rest lol.
Senior Yr: Latin II, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus, AP Economics, AP English Language, AP Studio Art</p>

<p>I had approx 200 hours of community service and im still doing community service at an animal shelter in college.</p>

<p>Extracurriculars: Varsity Field Hockey 2 years, Varsity Track 3 years, Varsity Lacrosse 3 years.
Academic Team
Fed. Challenge
Key Club
Century Club (for community service)
National Honor Society
Harvard Model Congress
W.I.S.E. at a local college (women in science and engineering) this program where we do research in various engineering fields.</p>

<p>there must be more, but im on a new laptop so i dont have all of my resume with me.</p>

<p>Any advice as to where else i should apply as a transfer or mainly what do you think my chances are of getting into the schools i listed above are.</p>

<p>Thanks so much!</p>

<p>Transferring to a UC as an OOS student will be more difficult. You will also pay increased tuition as a result. Your HS record is not a consideration. The main issues are your year of transfer (transferring as a junior is easiest), your area of interest (engineering would be difficult to get into), and the quality of work at your current school. You would need probably a minimum of a 3.5 to get a transfer admission to a UC.</p>

<p>thanks so much for you help! Im only a freshman but i cant stand it here. i need to leaver at all costs lol. As to my area of interest, i think i would either be majoring in math or biology, certainly not engineering.<br>
Do you think that i should or is it even possible to retake my SATs?</p>

<p>you chose Lafayette College over Middlebury? I hope at least Lafayette gave you a full ride. How much aid did Middlebury offer you (compared to the others)?</p>

<p>none. lol actualy Middlebury only about 10,000
Lafayette gave me 30,000
beleive me it tore me appart to go to Laf instead of Middlebury. I just dont have that kind of money.</p>
