I am a prospective transfer student hoping to get admitted to UM - Ann Arbor's EECS program. Currently I am attending Lawrence Technological University for electrical engineering in Southfield, MI. www.ltu.edu Lawrence Tech is a great school, don't get me wrong. However, it's prestige doesn't go beyond Michigan, really. It is well respected in Michigan, but if you want to develop a career outside of Michigan or the Midwest dealing with something other than automotive (LTU has very close ties with the auto industry) then you're in trouble. I also want to get into the field of solid state electronics/physics, and LTU doesn't have much to offer in that respect. UM Ann Arbor is the number 5 EE program in the country and has plenty of prestige nationally, and seems like it would open more doors for me. Also, LTU is a very small university (~5000 students and 3000 being undergrads). I was hoping to get into a university that has more of a "university feel" just to experience it. However, UM's minimum transfer GPA is a 3.5, and I have a 3.31, which is a bit low. However, I am transferring from an engineering university as opposed to a CC, and I have been a michigan resident all my life, which might help a bit I suppose. I have all of the course requirements satisfied to transfer (all of the calc, physics, and humanities), and then some. I will also have Adv. eng math (complex analysis for engis), circuits 1 with lab, digital electronics with lab, econ, and probability and statistics, all of which will transfer in. I have also taken a decent amount of chemistry (uchem 1 and 2 both with labs, orgo 1 and 2 with orgo 2 lab) Do you think I have a chance at being admitted? I will call UM's admissions office on Monday, but I figured I'd get your opinion first, since I can't call them on Sunday.
