Transferring to Wharton, should i retake SAT?

<p>Sorry if this is a repeated post, i tried searching to see if the answer was already posted somewhere on the forum but I couldn't find it.</p>

<p>I will be a freshman the University of Connecticut this year as a finance major, minoring in statistics and economics. I landed a job at the tech department, and will be running for student government and joining a lot of business organizations to try and set myself apart from the rest.</p>

<p>However, Uconn is a state school, and my high school grades and SAT scores were average (top 20% in class, 1930 SATs). I would like to transfer for Wharton after my freshman year, and I had a few questions.</p>

<p>1) Should I retake the SAT? or would that look bad? Is it even possible to take it after graduating high school?</p>

<p>2) What are some other things I can do that would really improve my chances at being accepted?</p>

<p>3) I've read that it is very important to write a very good essay with a good REASON for wanting to transfer. What is meant by this? My main reason is that I think I can land a better job with a finance degree from Wharton than Uconn. Do they want to hear something else though?</p>

<p>4) It says on the requirements for transfer that one should:</p>

<p>"gain proficiency in a foreign language by the time they enroll at Penn. Proficiency is usually equal to four semesters of college-level language courses and must be demonstrated by passing a proficiency exam at Penn before graduation."</p>

<p>How am I supposed to become proficient and take four semesters in just one year? I took Spanish in high school but I was not very good at it. I am fluent in Russian though, but Uconn doesn't offer russian. Would I be able to take the proficiency exam as a substitute for the courses?</p>

<p>5) How possible would it be for me to be accepted?</p>

<p>Thank you very much for any feedback. I greatly appreciate it.</p>
