South Carolina is not in the same league as any of the other schools you listed. However if its cheap and in state then go for it. What's you're current GPA?

Since you're applying to big name schools, I'd add UC Berkeley and maybe the other USC down in California. Also check out UMich, UIUC and U or Indiana.

I have said this before on this forum, but why would you recommend UIUC? It is virtually impossible to transfer into, and to even be seriously considered you would need a 3.8-3.9 at their school. Big risk and very hard to accomplish.

4.0 i live in charlottesville,VA and UVA has a preference with students that attend cc in va and takes more that half of the people admitted so my chances of getting into UVA is the highest. but i heaved lived here my whole life so i want something different and would choose any school over it other than cornell and perhaps UNC

I think you have a good chance at all the schools with a 4.0 and already wanting to get into banking.

You need a 3.8-3.9 AT UIUC. You cannot directly transfer into their B school

I was thinking about it but the weather is a concern and the school really does not interest me. But i am going to look into it perhaps i change my mind i know it is top notch though.

Student at South Carolina
I would not suggest going to USC unless you have to, BUT our IB presence is growing and alumni are happy to help. Our students in the year above me placed at GS, MS, Jefferies, Wells, Barclays, and DB. I think there may have been SunTrust as well.

That being said, it's a very select few who make it from Carolina - so don't come here if you don't have to. Our students work really hard to get half the opportunities of a target school

USC was on my list solely because my boy's go there and it has a beautiful campus, and it is a fun school to attend. So it was my safety school.

What did you pick these schools based on? The list seems pretty scattered from U SC to Princeton. Unless you have some remarkable story to really tell and literally perfect in every academic sense, schools like Princeton and Wharton are out of the race. Not because you're not a good candidate but because they don't accept many transfers.

U SC was just random i added it just because my boy's go there and its a fun school with nice weather. And if i did not get into any of the schools i listed U SC was my best shot, so basically safety (65% transfer rate). Also i have a pretty goo chance to get into UVA so Princeton and Wharton are my dream schools so i rather apply than not take that slight chance. My list is based on prestige/rank, placement, and how i feel i would enjoy the school based on a plethora of personal factors, but the list is not in order my top 3 are UVA, Texas, UNC

I would also add Berkeley, UCLA and University of Southern California. These schools are pretty good at taking CC transfers and you would get access to recruiting at all the west coast firms.

Nope I am in college right now and I am serious about this. Plus I only plan on working on wall street for like 5 years to learn the game and save money then I am off to start my own business ventures.

Forget South Carolina and don't apply to Illinois like somebody else mentioned.
