I am brand new to this forum and hope to seek some advice from the helpful community on here. I am currently a freshman student attending community college in the US doing Math & Economics. I had attended the first 3 years of my high school in Dubai and my senior year in the California. My original plan for education was to go from a community college to UCLA. However, I have decided on attempting to transfer to a top school in the U.K. (preferably London). I have only completed the AP during high school being Calculus BC and scored a 5 on the exam. I was only able to take one AP during that year due to having to take about 6 mandatory classes to graduate at a US high school. My high school grades the first 3 years ranged from 3.7-3.9 GPA and I got a couple of D's during senior year because I had gotten rejected from UCLA and saw myself heading straight to community college. I am now trying to figure out whether it is possible for me to transfer into a first year program at UCL - Imperial - LSE - Warwick - Durham. I have missed the UCAS deadline of January 15, so must I wait till next year to apply? If I must wait so long, I can find an internship at a financial institution and add that to my resume. What do you guys think is my best course of action to transfer to the UK?
