Transferring between similar rank schools?
« on: January 23, 2010, 11:36:55 AM »
How hard is it to transfer to another school of a similar rank? Say Georgetown to Cornell or vice versa.

There isn't enough data on transfers to be able to give you any real answer.  People suspect that if you're attempting a "lateral" transfer you should be at least median at your current school AND have a compelling reason for the transfer.

You'd probably be safe if you're at around the top 25% mark with a decent reason.

But transfer applications are a toss up.  The only thing we can say is do your best and apply.
