I will be going into a canadian university this fall (either UBC or McGill) and i’m planning to major in CompSci.
After freshman year, i’m planning to transfer into US universities that are in the top tier for compsci, (stanford, berkeley, carnegie mellon, duke, etc).
How hard is it to transfer into those colleges, according to the admission stats this year?
Also, what does it take for an international student (canadian) to successfully transfer?
high school GPA: 4.0/4.0 for 5 years straight
Extracurriculars: -accepted into several coding programs (spent 8 weeks learning to code at Google)
-started a coding club for children from low-income family at a local university
-started the environment club at my school
-vice-president of the Model United Nations club (2 years)
-Currently accomplishing the Duke of Edinburgh Award (gold level)
-part-time Robotics Instructor
SAT: 2100 (will retake)
-i’ve also won some awards of distinctions at an international math competition.
-first generation immigrant, we immigrated to canada from a developing country
What are my chances? and for those who successfully transferred, how did you do it?
