Sophomore Transfer to Cornell for better recruiting opportunities?
So, I'm currently at a semi-target school trying to transfer to a target school with better OCR for IB. I will be transferring on my sophomore year, meaning I will be a junior if I am admitted.
I really want to transfer to Cornell -- it is like like my dream school. I am also wondering whether Dyson or AEM will be more realistic to apply for(I do fill their prerequisite in terms of courses)?
My major concern is whether I should abandon the connections I make at the school I am currently, and whether I will really find my own place/make good connections after I transfer (since it would be junior fall already, it might be harder to land offer in new place)
My stats are okay-ish (HS GPA of 3.6, college freshman GPA of 3.8). Any Cornell ppl or just suggestion in general for whether I should transfer or not?
