Hey, i've posted on this board before n i had some questions on transferring. im starting my first year of college at UoP for pharmacy and i was wondering when was the earliest i could possibly transfer to cornell? im taking 18 units my first semester so does spring 2004 seem reasonable? also, any tips from successful transfer students (noodleman? you seem like the popular on this board, any suggestions for a hopeful cornellian?)

I'm guessing that UoP is Penn right? I do believe that you must have spend at least 1 year in college before matriculating, so you can apply for fall sophomore transfer.

sadly, no it is not UPenn. its actually University of the Pacific (a pretty cruddy place cept for thier 5-pharm program, which is what im doin). i heard that you only need 12 units to transfer so im not sure?

ohhh, sorry. I'm not sure. From what I know, you must've spent at least 1 academic year in college before applying to transfer. At least, that's what I've read. Probably should check the site or call the office.

My sister transfered to Cornell after 1 year at another school. They were rough on taking transfer credits though. They counted a lot of her former credits as elective credits, and didnt take a bunch of her AP credits although they were 4's and 5's.

Gosh. I'm flattered, as always. Tips? Oh dear.
Could you post your high school stats and any other salient information, please? I might be more useful with a frame of reference. I'll be happy to let you know my thoughts.

my high school records are poor-mediocre compared to others on this board.
SAT: 750 M/620 V
SAT 2: 720/700/700 (math, writing, chem)
HS GPA: 3.67 (major bummer!), 110 service hours and the usual activities, i had applied ED before and was deferred, then rejected. i talked to the guy who looked over me application and he didnt say exactly why i didnt get in, but "i would be a great transfer candidate", which is remotely uplifting. im doing a 5-year pharmacy program here in California which would give me 34-36 units at the end of one year. I'd be applying under chemistry at CAS.
