    Actually, for transfer students... BC might be more difficult than Tufts for transfers... but I'm not positive.

    Brandeis let in over 50% of the transfers that applied last year according to US News.

    But honestly I don't know... if your ECs and essays are good, that could help make up for the GPA, not that a 3.3 is even bad. I'm not an adcom though, so I don't know the answer. I mean... if you are a politics major and have worked on campaigns, obviously that would probably help.

    On the bright side... you realized that you wanted to transfer already and if you work hard, should at the very least be able to get into a good school as a junior transfer.

    Hopefully you'll get into one of your schools now.

    Good luck.
