Cornell Spring Transfer

<p>Is there a greater or smaller chance to be admitted to the spring transfer at Cornell vs. the regular fall one? Some of my stats are:</p>

<p>HS GPA: 3.5
SAT: 730,720,700 (CR, M, W)
SATII: Math 1-700; Math II-750; U.S. History-700</p>

<p>My college GPA for my freshman year is 3.83 from UMich. Lets assume (I will do my best ) to have all As for the mid term report. Do I stand a chance?</p>

<p>it's a much smaller chance because they take such a small number of transfers, and only a handful of external transfers across all of Cornell. </p>

<p>it's hard to evaluate your chances based on what you listed. it really depends on the school you are applying to and what major. based on your numbers, your gpa is a little low, but great essays and great ECs, can make up for that. if you're going for a math or science major though (like engineering or physics) i'd think your gpa may not be good enough since those majors are super, super competitive.</p>

<p>^ agree that it's harder, but i disagree that their gpa is low. a 3.8+ makes them competitive. you need to just knock your essays out of the park and you'll have a shot. worst case scenario, you apply for fall. what's your prospective major?</p>

<p>I will apply to CAS and major in econ if that changes anything</p>

<p>Oh oops, I messed up my college GPA. Its actually 3.883.</p>

<p>Collegefreak, I'm planning on applying to Cornell for spring as well. Is it true that if you're rejected for spring that you can reapply for the fall?</p>

<p>I know some colleges only allow you to apply once per year...</p>

<p>ack, CAS is hard to get into as is. last spring they only took 1 person if i'm not mistaken, but fall is also difficult. </p>

<p>swagger - yes, you can reapply for fall if you don't get in for spring</p>

<p>FWIW, CAS admitted about 15% of transfer applicants Spring 2008, and a little over 9% of transfer applicants Fall 2009.</p>
