No useful stats/worth it?

Postby djn123 » Wed Jan 18, 2012 11:09 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm at a mid-TT in the northeast in the top 10%. This is the first year my school is doing a mandated curve and grade distributions, so there are no useful stats from previous years. Based on the totally vague info above, would I have a shot at a school like GULC? How much would my chances increase if I broke into the top 5% after this semester?

Also, for anyone who has transferred to a significantly more expensive school, is it worth it?

Thanks a lot!!

It's tough to say with just that info. Top 10% is worth the app IMO and top 5% gives you a good shot.

Depends.
