<p>I sort of screwed up the whole applying to college "process", meaning I didn't even attempt to gain admission into a handful of schools I would have loved to attend. I’m heading to Upenn Wharton in a few days (I know it's a good school, but just too vocational for my taste) and I would like to know a few things about my position as a transfer applicant. Let's say I get a 3.7-3.9 GPA at Wharton, and participate in a few bs programs/activities on campus. Will I have a shot at transferring into schools like Yale, Stanford, etc?</p>

<p>Any thoughts/ideas?</p>

<p>I'd like to know too - i screwed up my stanford admission, but it everywhere else. I'm at northwestern university right now, and would like to transfer in 1 or 2 years.</p>

<p>somebody must know something</p>

<p>No one who is sane would say anyone has a likely chance at transferring into Yale or Stanford. If words like "Crapshoot" are often bandied about when referring to highly qualified candidates chances when applying there normally, then "infinitesimal chanced crapshoot" would be used for the 4-5% of acceptances. Really, both Wharton and NWU are absolutely excellent schools and on the eve of your matriculation, you should both sit back and enjoy them. What you perceive that Yale or Stanford has above UPenn and NWU is minute, I'm sure. I attended one of these and loved it but I would have been honored to be at either Wharton or NWU.</p>
