Thinking of transferring: Chances.

<p>I'll be transferring out of the College at Georgetown University. I'm currently a freshman (Class of 2012). I will be applying for Fall 2009.</p>

<p>By the time I apply:
GPA: 3.87 or 3.93
Credits: 15.00
AP Credits: 17.00 (5s on Calculus AB, BC, US History, US Government, English Language and Composition)</p>

<p>College GPA depends on how I do on my international relations final this semester.</p>

<p>High School record:
GPA: 3.75 UW
SAT I: 2300 (700 CR, 800M, 800W)
Subject Tests: 740 (US History), 760 (Molecular Biology), 790 (Math IIC)</p>

<p>Transferring to (possibly):
Cornell CAS
Northwestern WCAS
Duke Trinity
Yale College (Meh, it's worth a shot.)</p>

<p>I was previously accepted to Northwestern and the University of Chicago for freshman admission. I should have packed my bags for Illinois from the start. I visited both this past March.</p>

<p>I think I will have an easier time transferring to those schools than the other ones. I was rejected from Cornell CAS the first time around. Didn't apply to Duke or Yale during high school.</p>

<p>Thanks for your help. Any advice, suggestions, or pointers will be much appreciated. Good luck to all other transfers as well.</p>

<p>your stats are very solid...the only thing to be concerned about are your ec's and your prof. recs which are always hard to get this early on in your college career</p>

<p>yale is next to impossible to get into, but whatever. all the other schools, if your ec's and recs. are as impressive as your other stats, you should have a very solid chance at getting into</p>

<p>Thanks for the input. I originally thought I was majoring or doing something along the lines of Government or Foreign Service at Georgetown.</p>

<p>I'll be doing Economics and Mathematics or just Economics (depending on the school) as a transfer student.</p>

<p>Or I'll just stay at Georgetown at do Econ. Something like that.</p>

<p>I don't expect to get into Yale (few people do), but it won't hurt trying.</p>

<p>There must have been a reason you chose Georgetown over Northwestern and Chicago in your senior year of high school. Why do you want to transfer out?</p>

<p>I originally chose Georgetown over those two because I was turned off by the trimester system...that was my biggest trouble. I was thinking of doing Government or foreign service, and obviously Georgetown is the place to be for those. I also got slightly more financial aid from Georgetown. Washington's closer to home. Parents don't like planes. Meh.</p>

<p>Honestly...trimester system isn't that bad. I kind of wish I had the opportunity to take more classes right now. I'd definitely have gone to Northwestern if I had realized that eight months ago. Or U of Chicago. Toss-up. I'm not doing government or foreign service, and I'd like to go to a school that has a strong Economics program with some math involved. Possibly MMSS at Northwestern or the Economics and Mathematics major at Yale College (again, not banking on getting in so, yeah).</p>

<p>I was also looking at Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell. Anyone know the specifics for Human Ecology at Cornell?</p>

<p>Your chances at those schools depend on ecs, recs, and so on. You need high stats, but other than getting you past the first cut they mean largely nothing. So far you've given us little to chance you with.</p>

<p>And unless you have amazing ECs, amazing recs and amazing reasons for transfer to start with... I'm sure Yale will be more than happy to take your money.</p>

<p>How hard is it to transfer into Georgetown? I'm a college freshman with a 3.9 GPA. I got rejected the first time around. My sister is now a junior there. What are my chances?</p>

<p>you have to give us more info than that garoto</p>

<p>FixYou - I'm debating between applying to HumEc PAM or CAS-Econ at Cornell. With Econ, you're gonna get a broader liberal arts education, PAM is more pre-professional and while there's lots of Econ involved, it's more policy-focused than theory. However, PAM is a flexible major because there aren't too many requirements for the major, which will give you an opportunity to take tons of other courses, like you can take Econ and Math courses in Cornell CAS or CALS as well. Also, if you're a New Yorker, HumEc is reduced tuition ($20K/yr instead of $36K/yr) so that's a plus. HumEc is also more fit-based, as in they really want to see EC's that relate to your major, whereas CAS is more of a numbers game. Btw, have you looked into Cornell AEM (in CALS)? Cornell ILR might interest you as well if you're into Econ/Govt.</p>
