Elite School Transfers

<p>I just wanted to say hello to anyone applying to transfer to Yale, Brown, Harvard, Pomona, Vassar, Columbia, Cornell, Amherst, Rice, Berkeley and maybe Stanford. I'm sure we'll have a lot to toss back and forth. </p>

<p>I probably won't apply to Pomona. Out of 231 applicants they accepted 3 last year! YIKES!</p>

<p>yah....i'm applying to Cornell 2</p>

<p>Are there any top 25ish schools that let you transfer midyear (that is you must apply within the next month or so)?</p>

<p>Evil Robot, you're not thinking of transferring already are you???</p>

<p>Evil Robot,</p>

<p>If there are any schools that you're interested in, why don't you check their websites? Most of them have a specific section for transfer students that will state when they accept transfers (and the application deadlines).</p>

<p>I think that UM allows midyear transfer.</p>

<p>I'm fairly certain that Cornell allows mid-year transfer, as does Northwestern, WashU, Emory, Vanderbilt, Rice (whose deadline is Friday), Carnegie Mellon, Michigan and Virginia with deadlines hovering between 01 November and 15 November.</p>

<p>certain schools in cornell does allow mid-year transfer, while others don't</p>

<p>I am also interested in transfering to cornell after my sophomore yr. How generous is cornell in supporting financial aid to international students? Roughly, what is their max. (in dollars)amount they can support?</p>

<p>I do not want to dicourage you from applying but this year's College Confidential international transfer pool [including myself] received ZERO financial aid from Cornell. I was accepted to Arts and Sciences, Economics major with 4.0 GPA [along with other 40 international students]. Apparently they gave out 4 finaid packages...we have not seen them! Good luck!</p>

<p>The michigan deadline for the winter 2005 term was oct 1st.</p>

<p>Hi everyone. I am thinking about applying to Harvard, MIT and Yale for fall 2005 transfer and would like to have your opinion on my chances. I am a sophmore at Georgia Tech majoring in chemical engineering. My stats are as follows:</p>

<p>GPA: 4.00
SAT 1:1390 (740M,650V)
SAT II: Math IIC:790, Math IC:760, Chem:760</p>

<p>I am an international student and went to University of georgia (UGA) for my freshman year. I tranferred to Georgia Tech in Fall 04( I had also applied to MIT, Harvard, Yale and cornell but was rejected everywhere). so what dou you guys think. do I have a chance at these universities especially considering that I will be needing financial aid?
My EC's are really not much to talk about except that I was a peer tutor at UGA, some campus orgs, and community service .
and do you guys think visiting these colleges will help in anyway?</p>

<p>I scarcely believe I'm the only applying to these schools on this board.</p>

<p>Some schools need--not want--you to have some compelling reason for transferring. I can see why you might want to transfer to MIT from Georgia Tech, but I don't quite see a relationship between going from GT to Yale or Harvard, whose engineering programs aren't notably stronger than GT. </p>

<p>That's what you have to determine. Not prestige. How do you fit in? When you figure that out, write a compelling essay that illustrates your desire to move on. If you don't, you're screwed.</p>

<p>And if they've rejected you before, you'd better come up with a stellar application; otherwise, you're wasting $75. </p>

<p>FYI: Out of 319 applicants to MIT last year, they accepted 5. 2%.</p>

<p>Thanks for replying, up40love.
Do you think I should take my SAT 1 again?
and would it be helpful if I visit these universities and show that I am really interested?</p>


<p>I'm a freshman at William and Mary, and I'm applying to Penn, Yale, Brown, Cornell, and Georgetown. We'll probably have a lot of bantering to do once most of the apps come out.</p>

<p>up40love, just to let you know, they accepted a lot more transfers this fall (there are 11 who came, and they actually wanted 15 to come, but I don't know what exactly happened).</p>

are you referring to Pomona? If that's the case, I may have to rethink my decision not to apply there.</p>

<p>whoops, I forgot to mention which school I was talking about - but yeah, I'm talking about Pomona.</p>

<p>I'm also applying, to: Brown, CAl, UCLA, UCSD, UCD, Stanford, Harvard, Cornell, and Yale. But at this point, as a CA resident, I think I'd choose CAL over every one of those schools, except stanford, harvard, and yale. But I'm not sure. Good luck everyone!</p>
