Univ of Illinois Transfer Question..HELP!?

<p>Univ of Illinois Transfer Question..HELP!?
I really, REALLY want to transfer to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the fall of 2011. </p>

<p>Right now, I'm going to attend to Univ of Illinois at Chicago for my freshman year in the fall of 2010. I'm majoring something specific in engineering...maybe aerospace/chemical. I read much of the U of I transfer information on their website...and I was just wondering if anyone has good tips or insight of what I should do my freshman year at UIC to like the best applicant on the board.</p>

<p>When I applied to U of I my senior year in high school, I got rejected, because of a sub-par ACT score. I just do not want to get rejected twice, because of U of I is my dream school.</p>

<p>Does any one know the percentage of students accepted through transfers to U of I (specifically engineering)? I'm already in the University of Illinois system since I am in Chicago...but what do I need to get besides getting top notch grades??? What do the admissions look at when they review the transfer apps?</p>

<p>Thanks so much!! I greatly appreciate anyone's knowledge on this subject!!</p>
