im not sure if you have to go to DC since you only listed DC schools, but being in NYC, you might wanna try Fordham. Top 20% might be good enough for them. i think 38 people transfered there last year, dont know how many were accepted but it seems like a decent amount and you wouldnt really have to move

Anyone know how the grade curve works here?

i had asked kilroy that and he responded to me:

" I can't tell you the exact number because it changes each year, but the handbook states it is 2.9 - 3.1.  It breaks down like this:


Expect 15% A and A-.
Expect 15% C+ and below.
Expect 3-7% D and below.
Half are B+ to B-

Rougly 5 percent fail."

Seems like that is missing 8-12%?

Yep.  More than half have B- to B+, and roughly 5 to 7% will fail.  The thing about PSU-DSL is that the curve is "suggested grading norms."  They are by no means set in stone.  The missing 8 to 12% is wiggle room for faculty to hand out more Bs or more Cs.  They rarely ever go over the A mark, just so you know.  As a matter of fact, more will go under 15% As and give 5 to 10% As.  My crim pro class was a great example, I managed to pull off an A (I have no idea how).  My prof came to congratulate me when he got the grade report.  That was when he informed me only 2 people got As, out of 75 students.  Obviously, he felt overall the class didn't deserve lots of As, so he handed out more Bs. 


oof, 2/75. hope i dont get him, but nice work there kilroy
