TTT--->T14 and other regional schools

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 07, 2013 5:57 pm

3.66 at a regional TTT. Not sure where that ranks me (school won't rank until the fall, based on conversations with past students somewhere in the 10-15% range).

Target: Michigan (from the state, attended for UG [played that up in essays, mentioned really wanting to come back]). Am I reaching way too high here? Anyone with any experience? Couldn't really find much in terms of stats to help gauge my chances. I checked the transfer stats stickied at the top but I couldn't find anything comparable to my situation.

Also, anywhere else I should consider that's more of a shoe-in? I'd like to be able have a little negotiating chip with the Dean of Students to get some scholarship money if Michigan doesn't work out. Mostly looking to stick to the mid-west but really at that point, I'm just looking for a bargaining chip (realistic enough that the threat to leave would be credible).

Mich is likely out, but an app could be worth it. WUSTL for bargaining, or UIUC if that's your scene.

OP here again. Would it make a difference that my school is in Mich and Umich has historically taken transfers from there? I did some more searching on the stickied thread by drmguy and found a couple applicants that were similarly situated GPA wise, different school rankings though. One only had a 3.39, only 2 years WE from a school ranked 30-40.

Also, thanks for the WUSTL tip. They slipped my mind and don't have an app fee apparently.
