How hard to direct transfer into Mechanical Engineering at UW?
Hi all, I am currently a student at Purdue University but I want to transfer to UW. A little bit about me, I went to a community college in Washington state, was not decisive about my major, so I just decided to pursue an AA degree. I got general admission to Purdue and am now doing first-year engineering courses (physics, basic engineering sciences, etc.). However, I do not like it in the Midwest and would like to transfer to UW, but I don't know how realistic it would be. I also have way too many credits (more than 90 quarter credits although most won't apply to an engineering degree since I pursued an AA degree not AS).
-3.1 GPA over my college career (very low I know)
-lots of volunteering/involvement ECs but none are engineering or science related (mostly community service)
-worked an on-campus job at CC
-played sports in HS (outside the US tho)
-Washington state AA degree
Is it even possible at this point to transfer to UW mechanical engineering for fall 2018? The average GPA of admitted transfer students for ME is 3.6. What can I do to increase my chances?
