transfer ..

<p>Hi.</p>

<p>Getting into MIT would be a dream coming true, however, to be realistic chances are very high that I will not get in. Most likely I will not. </p>

<p>But I don't give up. How it will be seen if I finish a year in some other college and then apply for transfer at MIT? I haven't seen much information about how transfer application works, and what are the criteria and how competitive it is. Anyways, I think I will try this year, and if I don't get in; I'll try next year again ...and again ...and again.</p>

<p>Transfer admissions are usually significantly more competitive than freshman admissions -- for the last year statistics are available, the admission rate was about 6%.</p>

<p>You can find information on transfers at the Common Data Set [url=<a href="http://web.mit.edu/ir/cds/2010/d.html%5Dhere%5B/url"&gt;http://web.mit.edu/ir/cds/2010/d.html]here[/url&lt;/a&gt;].&lt;/p>
