Transferring to NYU - someone answer please.

<p>I was wondering if the choice of classes mattered? I am undecided and a freshman and so I am taking many different classes to see what it is I gravitate towards so that I can choose a major for sophomore year because I know NYU requires that. I am taking Math, Art History, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. Next semester, I am taking an English class (I placed out of the English class for first semester because of my ACT score) and probably a science class 2nd semester as well, because pre-med could be an option for me.</p>

<p>If I get straight A's, do the classes I take matter? I know online it says that most transferees are in liberal arts courses but that's all it pretty much says.</p>


<p>Yes, class choice does matter. You can't just take easy courses and expect to be considered for transfer (not insinuating you did). NYU has a pretty standard curriculum, so really what you want to major in kind of determines what classes you want to take. A prestigious school like NYU is one that you go to specifically major in an area, or at least have an idea. I'd suggest looking into a possible major (probably one that interests you and that you've taken close to the curriculum of required courses from transfer students) and go from there.</p>

<p>How does NYU know if my classes are easy or not? By the end of this year, I would have taken: English, Math, Art History, Psychology, Sociology, International Relations, Religion, Economics and Theater.</p>

<p>The easiest class is obviously theater...but college is a chance to explore what you like so I thought I'd take it because I've always thought about acting. The other classes are all classes that fulfill general requirements here at UM.</p>
