Question about Transferring to Duke

<p>Ok, so my arse got rejected (from another school, weeeeee) and I'm considering of transferring from my state school (UGA) to Duke. How soon can I apply as a transfer and do they look at my high school stuff? If so, what do they look at (GPA, SAT/ACT, rank, everything) and how big of a part does it play?</p>

<p>Basically, what do I have to do to (hopefully) get accepted to Duke as a transfer and what are the chances of a transfer student getting accepted at Duke from a state school?</p>

<p>Oh, and is it easier or harder to get accepted as a freshmen straight from college or as a transfer student?</p>
