my chances at a berkeley transfer

Postby shmoo597 » Wed Jun 16, 2010 4:56 pm

So...

I go to a top 20 school. I did great my first semester - a 3.81 GPA (median is 3.3, top 10% is 3.66). Second semester, not so much. Still waiting for my final grades, but I am guessing a 3.4-3.5. Total GPA will probabaly be 3.6 - so prob top 10-15%.

I have good letters (including one from the dean, who is very well known throughout CA, and whose class I got the highest grade in), a decent/strong resume, and a solid PS. I went to berkeley as an undergrad, and love the place. I have some compelling personal reasons for wanting to transfer as well.

I'm thinking that I probabaly won't get in, espicially with the second semester drop off (I got a 2.9 in one class:( ), but I am really hoping I do. What are my chances?

i think you're right, stinger. how were your grades in undergrad, shmoo? regardless, i think you're in very good shape w/ your school/rank combo and compelling reasons to transfer (please excuse my sarcastic pp)
