Thank you chet and odina for the information. As a result, to maximize my chances of transferring successfully, I wanted a good look into the city college system. My hands are forced at this moment. I will work hard to get a 4.0, but I fear that may not be enough if the community college is less than stellar. I am also searching for a volunteer opportunity in the city to help bolster my EC.
I went by Harold Washington again and spoke to the administration. I was simply given a list of Gen Eds to complete and told the requirements of enrolling in the college. I also asked about transfers but, again, the adviser spoke about DePaul, Loyola, UIUC, and UIC. I fear my chances of transferring into top tier universities may be bleak from this college.
Does anyone have a more information regarding transfers to Northwestern or other similar colleges from the community college around the city?
