I know and knew before posting that AU was probably my best shot. What I didn't know was how few transfers GMU takes. I also applied to Maryland shortly after op, though like GMU they take very few transfers (16 last year).
As for why post this kind of question, it's simply a matter of nerves. The uncertainty of not knowing where I will be going to school six weeks from now caused me to seek the best guesses of a mostly astute and educated group. Honestly, even if GW or GULC are extreme long shots, its well worth $150 to me--for peace of mind, at the minimum.
Thanks very much to all who posted without unecessary nastiness.
