School Possibilities- Stanford/Berkeley???

Postby transferhopeful12 » Thu Jun 10, 2010 5:39 pm

Hi there,
Just received my grades and improved significantly from first semester, should be somewhere between top 5-10% at UCLA/Vandy (I know this is a big range but I'm just not sure). Stanford and Berk apps are due next week, are either of these a possibility? Along with those 2, Harvard and Columbia are my dream schools- I know chances aren't great but does anyone have any idea? Not a lot of info on transferapps and I'm already a bit discouraged-I was around 15-20% first semester and was deferred from Georgetown EA so really not sure what to expect. Also thinking about Penn, Michigan and Duke.

Any input would be great, thank you!

Not sure why you are itching to leave so bad. That being said, I think You have excelled chances at almost any school if you are in the top 10 percent at a T20 school. Harvard may be a reach, but not impossible. As for all the other schools, chances are pretty high you will get into your pick.

Check your pm. I think top 10%+ at a vandy/UCLA is bound to get at least one of ccn, at the very least.

Agree for the most part, but I'm not sure if HLS is harder than SLS...


Yea, I kinda forgot to say anything about Stanford, which I think is harder to get into than Harvard, simply because of the smaller class size (more than half it appears), I guess I jsut assume most people would take H over S.
