What's with the 2 A-'s? Don't blame that on us.



In all seriousness, congrats. Nail down a sweet summer job and do it again next semester!

Yeah...I had no clue I was going to do this well. I expected top half.

If the grade distribution remains the same, I'm looking at being #1-5 in the class.
Well you asked about transferring...If you're #1-5 in the class after second semester then you should definitely be in the T14. Depending on how good your T2 is and where it's located, you could be looking at CCN. GULC and Chicago have early transfer admissions where you can apply with only 1 semester of grades; Chicago's is binding, GULC's is not.

Yes. I'd gun for a lot more money if you wanna stay. You win.

no.. you get a transfer acceptance to a school they know is better than them.. then you ask them to give you money.. if they say yes you consider staying and consider transfer.. if they say no you consider transfer depending on school

Congrats!! Believe me, I was in your situation last year. Feels awesome doesn't it? (Though I'm jelly that you got your grades this early... I had to sweat it out until mid-January).

Anyway, feel free to check out the transfer forum if you're considering it at all just to learn more about the process :). Top 5% at a T2 (and especially #1-5) definitely has a chance at a T14.

Congrats! Like most posters, I'd definitely recommend transferring--hopefully there's a strong school somewhere near your S/O.
