NYU to Chicago: Realistic?

Postby a_really_nice_hug » Mon Mar 26, 2018 5:36 pm

Howdy folks,

NYU doesn't release their class rankings until 2nd semester grades are released, so I'm flying blind on my class rank. Lifelong dream of attending UChicago, and wondering what sort of GPA is necessary to make this switch. Obviously, coming from a T14 ought to help, but I have no idea how much my school's ranking can overcome only "above average" grades.

Any advice you can provide? I'd really appreciate it!

What's your current GPA? People will generally know based on GPA what your rank is.
