Hi guys
Im thinking whether I should apply this year. Im an architecture major and sp2021 would be my third semester so I’m a sophomore transfer. Please gimme some advice!!

gpa (cc in CA): 3.5 (v low I know) (first semester:3.25, second semester:3.82, hope I can get a 4.0 in the coming semester)
hs gpa: I’m an international applicant and my school don’t use gpa (but my scores are awful)
SAT: 1500
extra curricular(cc): 1 part time job, two club committee, academic honor
extra curricular(hs): 2 part time job, VP of 3 clubs, co founder of a team, volunteer in political activities (not sure whether I should put this bc it might be sensitive)

courses I took in cc:
[sp2020]
intro to archi - A
Archi Graphics I - B
Hist of Wrld Arch/Erly Civ/MA - A
College Comp & Reading - C
World Hist to 1500 - EW

[fall 2020]
Archi Design I - B
Archi Graphics II - A
Digital tools for Design - A
Hist of Wrld Arch: 18th C/Pres - A
English: Critical thinking - A
History of the US before 1865 - A
Introduction to sociology - A

hook: FGLI
unhook: need financial aid (which means my admission would become need-aware), got two b in major courses and a C in an eng course, no internship

I am actually a long term green card applicant. My application was accepted earlier but because of covid, there are still some process to go thru so I am not a citizen yet. Since I am not residing in the US, I guess Im not eligible for need-blind admission. If I apply next year, I am confident that I can push my gpa to 3.7. And If I can get my green card before the application, my admission would become need-blind. But I think applying in spring have some kind of disadvantages especially for architecture… Do you guys think I should wait for 2021sp? Or should I try first? Will applying twice harm my chance of getting in? Thank you very much.

I think there are much much much fewer transfer applicants for almost every university this year? Do you guys feel so ?

Why do u think that? Or r u just empirically thinking that based on other CC threads?

Is Cornell really that easy to transfer too? I am thinking about sending a transfer app last minute after seeing you only need a personal statement to apply.

NYU GPA: 3.75
SAT: 1500
HS GPA: 3.69 W

weakness: My letters of rec are not as strong because I have not really connected with any of my professors

No Ivy transfer is easy. Cornell has the sophomore guaranteed transfer which may inflate the acceptance rate into the double digits. My adage is nothing ventured nothing gained. But I wouldn’t apply only to Cornell if you’re really intent on transferring.

Here is some additional info on transfers. Also be aware that some schools within the university have additional requirements such as SHA which asks for a resume.

Where do transfer students come from? Review the data below and learn more about Transfers at Cornell.

  • New York State transfer students: 187
  • Transfer students from the Northeast*: 148
  • Transfer students from outside of the Northeast*: 186 (214 if including international)

I am! I’m applying ILR

Does anyone know when decisions are likely to come out?

Hey @lalaliya I am no admissions officer but I do not think applying twice hurts your chances. You should apply for the sake of it just to see how far you get in admissions and next semester you can reapply. I know that colleges will have your previous grades and gpa but I do not think you should be nervous about it because if they see improvement the will definitely appreciate. Once again disclaimer I am NOT an admissions officer this is simply my point of view. Hope this helps!

I am also going to be adding my stats to set the picture

Anyone know how to delete your standardized scores from CommonApp? I have submitted to one college but I dont want to submit to other schools but its not letting me delete it.

You can’t edit the transfer app at all after you submit it to even 1 school. the only thing you can do is add more activities/accomplishments
