Wharton Undergrad transfer to Harvard for Applied Math/Stats and Government

First year Wharton undergrad (Double major in Math) looking to transfer to Harvard for Applied Math/stats and gov.

Pros of Penn

  • Bestfriend goes to the school 

  • Best UG business school, so job offers won't be too hard 

  • Great living situation 

Cons of Penn

  • No true Applied math program 

  • No stats major (just concentration within Wharton)

  • Business requirements like marketing that take away from legal studies and math

  • No longer interested in traditional forms of finance and would rather go to law school (Harvard, Yale, Stanford)

  • Not a big fan of Philly area

Pros of Harvard

  • It is Harvard 

  • Better concentration options for all 3 areas of study (Stats, Math, & Gov/Legal) 

Cons of Harvard

  • Only ~12 people get in

  • Cambridge weather (not large problem)

  • Leaving friends 

I also have 2 national full-ride scholarships that are applicable to any university in the United States, meaning that both schools would end up paying me to attend, so finances is of no large value.
