what schools should my brother be able to apply to, as a transfer? his college GPA is so far something like 3.95 or something. straight A's except for his intro-aerobics(PE) class(B+). he finished both semesters of his freshman year with the highest grade in his freshman chemistry class, they gave him some CRC freshman chemistry excellence award and a new CRC book for that. he will most likely have excellent recs. not very many ECs, just a couple clubs. his highest combined SAT score is 1330, his highest in one sitting is 1280. he hasnt taken any SAT2s, is that really bad? is JHU too much of a reach? his intended major is most likely either chemistry or pre-med. what schools should he be looking at? he goes to a small school in kansas, private, that no ones heard of. his highschool transcript, he had 4.0uw both junior and senior years, and took 1 AP junior year and 2 senior year, a so so course load. im afraid hes going to apply to schools that would most likely be only safeties or matches for him. if someone could help me build a list for him. thank you.

From what I've seen of transfer apps, SAT scores are for statistical purposes and have a small if any impact on admission. Same goes with AP's with HS transcript. It's all about GPA in college. 3.95 looks good IMO, but I'm sure he'll be up against 1534523 4.0's. GL
