Hi, I'm currently a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, but I'm thinking about transferring to a different school.
I know that transferring to Wharton is really competitive. I heard the acceptance statistics are around 25/300. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether I should just forget about even trying to apply.
College GPA: 4.0
3 of my 5 college courses aren't introductory 100 level courses. I'm in courses that sophomores or juniors usually take: Accounting 201, Economic Statistics 202, and French 208 (Critical Reading and Writing)
James Scholar Honor Student (Top 15% of UIUC's entering freshman class)
College EC's: Very active in a couple of Social/Cultural Clubs.
High School GPA: 3.93 Unweighted; 4.53 Weighted
SAT Composite: 1310
ACT Composite: 31
9 AP Tests; Five 5s and Four 4s; National AP Scholar
National Merit Commended
National Honor Society
French National Honor Society
Co-French Student of the Year (Senior yr.)
High School EC's:
50+ Service Hours at a hospital
JV Football (Junior yr.)
Debate Team (Senior yr.)
I think I have decent enough grades, but my lack of strong EC's and my test scores probably hurt me. I'd really appreciate any feedback and suggestions. Thanks.
