does anyone know if these schools prefer sophomore transfers? i am a freshman in the honors program at clemson university looking to transfer as a mechanical engineering major.

4.0 gpa after taking 15 credits my first semester
honors college
720m/660v sat
visual art supplement
6/380 rank in high school class
AP score: bc calc 5, us hist 5, engl lit 4, drawing portfolio 4, gov 4, chem 4

Fall Courses:
Intro to Engineering (with lab) -- A
Multivariable Calculus (honors) -- A
Physics 1 -- A
Advanced Drawing -- A
Survey of Art and Architectural History (honors) -- A

Spring Courses:
Engineering Mechanics (with lab)
Physics 2
Differential Equations
Contemporary Literature
Intermediate Drawing

my courses may seem kind of random because at clemson i took credit for english 1 and 2, chem 1 and 2, calc 1 and 2, drawing 1, and a few social sciences. therefore i took some courses to fulfill general education requirement and took art for fun.

I was accepted to ga tech last year, can they re activate my application? i tried calling their office but i suppose it's closed for holidays. also, it seems kind of weird that georgia tech's transfer ap is 2 pages. am i missing something?

thanks in advance!
