Hi there,
A friend of mine is going to SUNY Binghamton next year (transfer after freshman). I guess his GPA will be around 3.6 and he doesn't have a lot except community service and christian assoc. I am not arrogant or proud of myself, but I am sure I am doing way better than he does. The sad thing is that I didn't think of transferring after one year, and SUNY binghamton is pretty good.

Am I being stupid ? I am frustrated about transferring ...

I am an international student interested in majoring in Business Marketing, but i am not sure about my chances to transferring into these schools:

UMichigan (a reach definitely)
NYU (my first choice, but very competitive and selective)
UWashington (I am in a CC at Washington State)
Indiana U (a match?)

My stats:
-GPA = 4.0
-TOEFL = probably more than 250 (600)
-did not take SAT, not going to
-student ambassador since I came here
-international students org social activities coordinator, will be VP next year
-will get involved in community service club (only a member right now, try to be an officer)
-student senator of student government
-will try to work/volunteer at tutoring center
-PTK member
-help in international students orientation

Please evaluate my chances Thanks a lot!
If any of you transferred/is transferring to any of the above colleges' business schools, could you tell me what liberal arts class you take?

Thanks again!
