I am international student and I have been accepted at KU with a great scholarship :). If anything goes as planned I will be attending Ku School of Engineering this Fall.
I want to major in Computer Science and, while KU school engineering is very good, I think I may have another chance of going to a college with a better CS program if I transfer. Maybe I like KU, but keeping transfer as an option is what I have in mind, and it wouldn't hurt to try :).
So I was wondering when did you, people that have already applied for transfer or are in another college after transfering, started to think and prepare for your application process?
If I want to apply for Fall 2013 admission (so that I would only study one year at Ku) I have seen the deadlines for most universities are January or February. I think I would need to retake the SAT (originally 1870), SAT Physics (originally 740) if I want to apply for great schools (maybe one or two that offer need blind admission). I am afraid that would mean that I will have to prepare & take the SATs again, write the essasys (very good ones), have a great relationship with teachers to get good recommendations, and study hard for college courses too to get an outstanding GPA!
I think many of you have thought of the same situation so could anyone help me? I have a great will to commit to this process, so if doing all of the above is the only option I would do my best to achieve my goals :)
