nope^ . for transfers: upenn - 9% yale - 2% columbia - 5%
Mar 30, 2012 @ 21:39
oh and sat's still matter even for jr transfers at all those schools. so even if you manage to pull off a 4.0, you still won't get in if you have a bad sat score. i.e. less than 2000.

dope. i love pullman. considering transferring to u of idaho next year.

If either of you want to transfer later on just keep your GPA above a 3.8 (something you should strive for anyways) then come up with some bullshit excuse to get them to accept you. Say you wanna team up with Bill Clinton, Bill Gates and Bono to cure AIDS in Africa. Once you get into the school of your choosing, feel free to ignore your so-called "calling" then proceed to major in Econ so you can get that upper 5-figures spot at Goldman Sachs.

As for me, the reason I'm trying to transfer to Yale/UPenn/Columbia is legitimate, but that shouldn't matter: what does matter in life is that the ends justify the means.


Lol I just found out I got accepted to USC today. I'll probably end up taking the full-ride to Howard because of financial issues though.

thanks bapa

fuck waitlisted to ucla =(


This.
Not mad doe, got into UCSB, UCI, UCSC, Boston U, USF
How did all you guys hear back from NYU already? Still patiently waiting on NYU and Berkeley

where do you plan on going?


Got in to Berkley for the Spring semester so probably gonna do that. UCSB and BU would be next choices though
Mar 31, 2012 @ 08:14
alright sorry for jumping to conclusions it's just your original post struck me as douchey. once i saw you went to uchic i realized you weren't just some average hb kid talking noise about how he was gonna get into an ivy league.

anyways, good luck with transferring to where you wanna go. don't put too much hope into yale. transferring there is like the lottery. you probably will have a decent chance at columbia with urm status and a 4.0. oh and don't discredit brown just yet. its s/nc system is dope and would give you a lot of free time which would be good socially. i understand as a black guy it might be a bit weird to go to a granola school like brown but i feel like you would find your niche pretty easily.

just in case you're wondering i'm in a very similar situation as yours. applied as a transfer just recently to a lot of the schools you're planning on applying to. my sat's are higher but gpa is lower. applied to 12 schools so we'll see what happens. i'll post when i hear from them in mid-april to mid-may.

question for ya - why didn't you like uchicago? i applied but it's fairly low on my list. honestly i've only heard bad things about it other than its academics.

yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Mar 31, 2012 @ 16:51
so how many of you niggas am i gonna see at NYU this fall?
Mar 31, 2012 @ 18:49
by average hb kid i meant 3.0 gpa 1550 sat or somewhere around there. clearly that isn't you lol. if you go through this thread you'll see what i mean.

everybody has their own thoughts about affirmative action. i believe it's a broken system right now and needs to be fixed. all the carltons from bel-air who are rich as hell and go to private school have a much higher chance of getting into an elite school than all the white kids from compton who go to try-not-to-get-shot high school and are dirt poor. that's messed up. it should work both ways regardless of the racial implications. idk i just feel like it should be based on family income and where one went to school rather than the color of one's skin.

don't apply to brown if you need fa. they are very need-aware. you're competing with everyone who checks the fa box for a very limited amount of money. basically your chances drastically drop if you check the box.

i applied to uchic about a month ago. good to hear some positive feedback about the university.

few questions for ya - what did you think about the party/frat scene? what about the girls? heard theyre atrocious...hopefully not true. also if you had known what you wanted to study and fully applied yourself, do you think you could have pulled off all A's or close to it?

thanks bro

nah it isnt that big of deal buddy. thanks though. im sure someone else will have some things to say.
Apr 01, 2012 @ 06:56
couple guys on hb go to ucr on here. dan loves it cuz hes a fratboy but ele says its whatever. its not that great academically and the area around it is pretty shitty but if you're trying to have a good time its what you make of it. some people hate it there some people love it there.

ha yeah i know the area pretty well. im originally from there. idk though. i go to a CC now so i am also considering just going to riverside city first and eventually transfering to a university, that way i could maybe work hard and be able to get into a better school in so cal. benefits of RCC also would obviously be the price and i could live with my brother (hes almost 30 but taking classes at RCC trying to earn his degree) and try and get on my feet down there rather than just jumping into a university. any advice guys?
Apr 01, 2012 @ 07:01
SFSU!

Nice! How is it there, bro? I'm thinking about going there.
Apr 01, 2012 @ 18:59
