Also, will the schools consider you before you get in your second semester grades or only once it is totally complete?

I am a bit suprised since my school only goes to an A(4.0) but I have to ask, what school are you at now, and if you have that GPA why waste it by transfering? You do know that GPA dies in a transfer right, only credits move and the GPA starts over again. In theory your above A grades wouldnt mean jack if you transfer and then bomb a class, you'd still end up on academic probation. Why risk it?

If you do equally as well this semester, you'd have a shot at YHS.  I think Georgetown accepts applications prior to second semester grades, but not sure about other top schools.  You should focus on killing this semester like last semesters and have fun at Yale next year.
