<p>So I'm a sophomore at Portland State University and I'm trying to transfer to different schools. Ultimately, my goal is to put myself in a situation such that when I graduate, I can potentially go anywhere (including Harvard...). I know pretty much how hard it is (GPA, GMAT, LOR, Intership .....) but my question is not here.</p>
<p>My question is about the schools I could transfer to and whether or not graduating from those can make me a potential candidate for top schools. BTW, I'm an Econ/Math major and which to pursue a quantitative finance degree upon graduation. </p>
<p>So far my transfer list is: Wisconsin-Madison, Boston U, UNC-Chapel Hill, McGill, USC (in LA not South-Carolina) and the object of all my worries, University of Oregon. I'm pretty sure all those universities are well seen except for Oregon which I know is not as good as the others but could potentially help me more financial (I'm an international student).
Assuming great performances at Oregon + EC + LOR + Internship + awesome GMAT, would graduating from UO be a negative point in my app or is it seen as rigorous enough by top school?</p>
<p>I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks so much for reading this and have a good evening.</p>
