Transfer to UIUC??!

Hey guys, I am currently a freshman at UIC trying to transfer for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) for fall of 2011 as a Sophomore into LAS. By the end of freshman year I will have about 30 credits completed. My major is Mathematics with a minor in physics.

My stats for the end of freshman year at UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago):

GPA 4.0 / 4.0

AP Credit for AP Calculus AB (Calculus I)
Calculus II
Calculus III
Composition I and II
General Chemistry I
Sociology 100
Calculus Based Physics
Completed Language requirement for LAS at U of I and UIC because of 4 years of Spanish in high school.

My high school record is average:

GPA 3.35/4.83
ACT: 22
I was part of several sports teams and clubs.

(Some information would be helpful that I was rejected from U of I because I applied in their ENGINEERING program freshman year. I knew I was going to get rejected, but tried anyway. I switch my major to Mathematics.)

So apparently all of these credits transfer to U of I. So do I have a chance of getting into U of I in the fall of 2011 as an incoming Sophomore?

    You need to have 30 hours to be considered a sophomore. If you don't have 30, you are still a freshman. Some schools won't let you apply as a transfer student until you reach sophomore standing. If UIUC is like UIC, you can't apply as a transfer student until you have 26 hours at time of application. If you don't have those hours, you apply like a freshman applicant.
    UIUC does give second priority to UIC students.
    The credits will transfer. The issue is the number of hours. The credit hours might vary between the campuses.
    If you have completed UIC's LAS foreign language requirement, you should not worry about UIUC. UIC's LAS requirement is actually one of the strictest in the entire University of Illinois system because you still have to take the placement exam even if you took 4 years of high school language.
