How high up did they transfer?


Some very high. Others, not that big a leap. Not to the T6 or anything though.

All said it sucks at OCI, though. They said they may have stellar grades from their old school, but that employers still had to compare them to the new school and it's a hard sell.

I've read elsewhere here that transfers generally do alright at OCI because they are coming in with pretty good grades.

Could you expand? [edit: nm]

Transferring up is something that's been on my mind since grades came back. Seriously considering the EA option at Chicago. Barring that, Berkeley and UCLA seem like good options. My preference is to find a job in California, so staying where I'm at might be a good option. I need to find out how OCI went at my school this year.

What's "very high" if not the T6?

Like I said -- biggest fear (especially with the debt). On the plus side, it's pretty cool to even be entertaining this idea. Motivation to keep it up.

I'm assuming this is LRW or contracts, right? Sorry to hear that you still have nothing -- 3A at least has Ks results.


Yeah our Ks class. 3Bers will be finally be joining me and compulsively checking grades all day tomorrow.

i hate how tight the curve is (at least compared to what he said in class)

I got 1/2 of my grades in the space of one whirlwind hour yesterday; all I want to talk about is grades. I like to think I'm not a douche; the only thing I cannot talk about is grades.

Don't F5. Just wait for someone to tell you. It will make you much more sane.

I swing back and forth between wanting and not wanting. The longer we wait, the more it grows in importance to me.

I was really anxious about individual grades during break. Now I just want to know what my GPA is.
