Hey,

I am a second year physicist at Imperial College London.

I've got an outstanding academic track (89% in my first year), but not much in terms of extra-curricular.

Thing is, I'm an international student, so money is an issue for me.

So, I am thinking of applying for transfer admissions to US.

I'm sure whether this is a good idea or not?
Also, given my track, which schools am i likely to get into?

Have you researched how much it will cost you to attend a US university for 3 years?

Transfer admission is really tough, especially in top schools. Even if you do get in chances are they won't accept many of your second year credits. A friend of mine had a very similar situation, just like you he was a second year student at Sussex and I think he got nearly 100 percent on all his courses, he transfered to UChicago, but they only accepted his freshman year courses. But he was in engineering though.

I would only enroll at a US institution if it offers me scholarships and if it is of a similar or higher
calibre as Imperial.
