Transfer to Ivy League

<p>I am an international student applying for spring semester 2011 of DVC in California.</p>

<p>I am planning to double major History and Economics</p>

<p>I know it is even HARDER to transfer than to apply as a freshmen for thee top schools. </p>

<p>Because there will be extremely small number of slots, and I need to compete with more </p>

<p>comptetitive candidates with various background such as 30-year-old single mom who just</p>

<p>found her passion in English literature. And I suck in English.</p>

<p>But people in my country say, if undoable make it doable.</p>

<p>It will take a month to explain why I am aiming these impossible schools.</p>

<p>But please remember this guy is serious.</p>

<p>Any kind of advice, personal ideas, and event insults are welcomed. </p>

At the moment, I don't know what to do for EC.</p>

<p>I have seen students applying for math or science majors trying to win some math/science </p>

<p>competitions, but I have not heared of history/ecnomics competitions.</p>

<p>What are the effective ECs related with history/economics??</p>


<p>ECs are of relatively little importance in transfer admissions. Don't bother trying to stack the deck now with ECs in which you haven't been participating consistently. Spend your time tailoring your application, keeping your grades up, and preparing your essays.</p>
