Transfer Advice

Postby nelaw2010 » Wed May 29, 2013 6:48 pm

Currently at T2 in SoCal (San Diego). Top 10%. I have a $100k scholly. Looking to transfer to either UCLA or USC.

First, do you think I'll get in to either school?

Second, do you think it's worth it?

I want to stay in SoCal, but ideally in Los Angeles.

give it a shot. think you are selling yourself short by staying in S. CA

Give berkley a shot - and Stanford. If you want CA long term - look into what T-14 schools have best OCI stats for CA

I don't think its necessary to transfer with your large scholarship - but wouldn't hurt exploring. UCLA you should be a lock - but then your paying shit ton more even with in state

Worth applying. Come back with acceptances and we can help you decide.
