Question by Katy Martens: College Transfer chances?
Hey guys! I’m entering UT Austin as a freshman but I’m wanting to transfer to NYU, Barnard, Eugene Lang or Fordham for second semester freshman year. I got into Fordham previously but chose not to go (foolishly). Anywho, my high school stats were okay, I did IB diploma and I had a 3.45 gpa. I also got a 31 on the ACT. I had awesome extra curriculars and community service stuff too. (I’m starting UT with 18 hours credit, so I’ll have enough credit by december to transfer).
This semester I’m enrolled in 17 hours currently (French I, France in Popular American Culture, Fundamentals of Public Relations, Art History and Conceptual Physics). I am going to get straight A’s if it kills me. Also, I’m doing a video editing class, a photography/photoshop class and an art class outside of school. I’m going to work at my mom’s restaurant and my dad’s lawfirm and I’m also going to join a club at UT.
What are my chances of getting into the above schools? I’m applying for a public relations major at Fordham and Eugene Lang, Film Studies at Barnard, and Media, Culture, Communications at NYU. I’m also planning to minor or double major in French.
I’ve heard that Eugene Lang accepts people with gpa’s of like 2.5 and ACT scores of 27 so I have a pretty good feeling about that school, but still. Thoughts?
so yeah-what are my chances?

There are a lot of variables in transfers – how many slots are available, and the competitiveness of the other applicants. All you can do is apply and see what happens.
You are going to one of the finest universities in the world right now. Why don’t you save the northeastern schools for your graduate or professional training?
