Top 20% at T2 chances?

Postby ashawnt » Wed Jan 29, 2014 9:17 pm

Finished top 20% at T2 in the 60's. What are my chances for GULC? USC? UCLA? Ideally these are the only schools I see worth transferring too considering I only have ties to So. CAL and D.C. and don't have the grades to blanket T-10

Hoping to do better this semester to pull myself up to the top 10-15%. However, assuming I only maintain my current position what are my chances? I was thinking about doing EA binding to U.S.C or georgetown than applying to the other schools when spring grades come out . . . Any thoughts on this strategy? Paying almost full sticker currently!

Don't really have a great understanding of the entire transfer process, but it seems like that likely won't be high enough to get in and transfer. But I have to imagine that a good number of people between a rank 60 school and a top 20 school are applying to the same schools with better class rankings.

Likely should try and move up in class rank as much as possible, but you'll likely need a big jump to maybe top 10% to have a good chance.

It appears you have an outside shot at U(S)C(LA). If you haven't looked at the table posted in the first post of the Transfer Stats thread yet, you should.

Some approx parallels:
2013, 15% at 50-60 applied to GWU, GULC, UVA; accepted at GWU; rejected at UVA; WL/Rejected at GULC.

2013, 30% at 90-100 school applied to GULC, GWU, GMU/American; Rejected at GULC; Accepted at other 3.

2013, 25% at 30-40 school applied to GULC, Berkeley, UCLA, WUSTL; WL/withdrew GULC, Rejected Berkeley, accepted UCLA/WUSTL

2012, 25% at 40-50 applied GULC, USC, UCLA; Accepted at USC; withdrew UCLA app

2012, 30% at 50-60, applied and accepted Vanderbilt
