<p>Thank u guys</p>

<p>You look like you're in good shape, just write a convincing essay.</p>

<p>Even though you're a competitive candidate, with transfer rates below 10%, UChicago and C are impossible to predict, and Penn is only slightly higher at 15%. Whether you should apply to other schools depends on whether or not you're ok with staying at Cornell if you don't get into one of these three and if there are any other schools with higher transfer rates that interest you.</p>

<p>@entomom Thank you very much! For those schools, UC is my dream. Is it so hard to get into UC these years? as I heard they kinda accept a good number of transfers each year?</p>

<p>About 5% transfer rate, compared to 16% for fr:</p>

<p>College</a> Search - University of Chicago - Chicago - Admission</p>

<p>p.s. I don't believe in dream schools. I'm a firm believer that a robust, adaptive person can make many colleges work for them.</p>

<p>@entomom Thanks for your info! that is the reason I'm applying for other schools too</p>

<p>anybody else give me some suggestions about adding some other schools? and my chance for these schools?</p>

<p>freaking out...</p>
