    Well this question is about CORNELL. I was wondering if anyone knows how difficult it is to get in to CORNELL if you are a transfer student? :scared: I am currently at a Community College and have looked at different universities online and i find that CORNELL is the type of school i would like to go to .. the location seems beautiful and i know that since it is private it also must mean that its very difficult to get into.. WELL my dreams are now set on attending that school and i need some advice or opinions on how to "look better" than the other Fabulous people applying... I most likely am not close to transfering since ive had school on and off while going through the whole working full time or going to starve thing.. ;) sometimes it just feels a little hopeless with those kind of universities especially since when i first started community college i didnt start off great.. although they were courses that probably are not transferable or even count.. it still shows.. Well Anyyyyy Advice would be Welcome.. thanks again for reading this longgg post.. :rolleyes:

    I think you are in trouble if you started off bad. But they do accept alot of transfer students by looking at their admission stats. They also have agreements with local community colleges, so you wouldn't be the only community college student to do this. I have heard it is less competive to get into the Agricularal program? I have noticed they have a Bio department under this section. Does anyone have any info about transfering into this department?

    If you are from New York and you want to be a bio major, I recommend applying to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) for the Biology major. This college is part of the State University of New York system and therefore not only offers a reduced tuition fee as compared to the endowed Cornell tuition, it also favors New York State residents. If you are from out of New York CALS may still be a wise school to apply to because they have a more flexible list of requirements as opposed to those enforced by Arts and Science.

    Lastly, there is a sizable group every year that comes from junior colleges and community colleges. However, I know that their stats are usually stellar with a solid committment to a desired major displayed by their GPA. Cornell is an extremely difficult school. Although it may be the easiest Ivy to gain admisison to, it is most likely the hardest to do well at.

    For Psych you have to be in Arts and Science. So good luck with that.

    You may want to look into either Human Biology and Health Science or Biology and Society which have psych components to them and is in both A&S and CALS.

    You may also want to look into Human Development and Family Studies which is in the college of Human Ecology and it too has a strong sociology/psychology component.

    Any questions PM me.

    Good luck!
