I have heard that GULC is huge and kind of impersonal, plus hugely competitive to be with such a large class.
I'd like to be back on east coast. What about Penn? How is Michigan for transfers/getting back to NYC? And finally, any other schools I should be looking at? Thanks.
Too low for Columbia/NYU/Penn. I mean, you can throw applications, but I'd say 25% shot at each. Michigan is fine for getting back to NYC, but like I said, you're borderline there too. You can give Northwestern a try, but you're probably not going to be able to crack the east coast schools.
For reference: most people who got CLS/Penn/NYU last year from T2 schools either had GPA's in the 3.9 range, were in the top 1-3% of the class, or both. People in the top 3-5% got Michigan/Northwestern/GULC. People in the top 10% got GULC. There are a few outliers here and there, but that's how it mostly went. Check out the transfer thread last year and look at the stats of people that got into CLS/NYU/Penn.
