<p>hi i have just graduated from highschool with a 3.9 GPA 1640 on my SAT and have a lot of extra curriculam activities. Im going to Stony Brook but dream school has always been NYU/ Cornell but my parents have always underestimated me. I saw how some friends of mine got in and now i want to transfer. IS it a good idea? If yes what are the requirements for a frshamn transfer?</p>

<p>A solid A- cumulative college GPA.</p>

<p>It really depends on your GPA for your first year in college and your high school record. </p>

<p>But, having already gone through transfers very recently, and talked with counselors. I have found that having a solid GPA at your current college will definitely show the admissions board that you have succeeded in a college atmosphere. Most colleges require a minimum of either 28 or 30 credit hours (not counting AP credits) so make sure you send your fall and spring transcripts to your desired college. Some require none; just like your freshman application. Another requirement most colleges follow is having a GPA of either 2.5, but for NYU/Cornell I would imagine you want your GPA to be around a 3.5 range (I had a 3.4 and got into Vanderbilt so who knows!). Make sure you get recommendation letters from high school college counselor/college academic counselor & a professor or two. </p>

<p>If NYU/Cornell is your "dream school" then why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose except an application fee right? I say go ahead, a great idea. Also try to give your current school a try, you never know what you will find at any university. You might just be surprised!</p>
