Do you know the transfer rate for Carnegie Mellon (Mellon College of Sciences)? I'm a math major.
I asked my professor for a rec., and he said that he has said no to students before but he won't say no to me. He said that he would give me a really glowing recommendations to three colleges of my choice. I'm confident that he will because we talked for like an hour.
Am I aiming too high again? On their web site, they said that they care more about college transcripts than HS transcripts. I have a 4.0 GPA at a 2-year college (2.9 GPA in HS), and I will have my associates by the end of this school year. I'm planning on staying another year to take physics, biology, and some lit. classes because some colleges aren't open in the spring to transfer. Plus, I want to rigor up my transcript.
Oh, and I understand that grad school is more important regarding getting my Ph. D, but I just want to try this out. I'm going to be happy at any of the colleges I end up at, but I just want to know my chances at this school.
