LOTS OF EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES THAT ARE USELESS WHEN APPLYING FOR UNIVERSITIES IN AUSTRALIA. (Except applying for dorm lol)


----------------INCLUDED EVERYTHING-----------------------------------------------


Reason for worrying - I've got 3.3/4.0 at Stanford which is quite shocking to me.........................

hmm....... the reason for going to ANU is because I want to start my career early and after taking several lecture at first year I have decided to study law so I do not have to wait till JD........................!

Also, studying (Software / Computer MAJOR both physical and computational things) THUS studying in Australia is the best choice 4 me

Many people said that I am a dumb shit since I gave up Stanford.............

but I don't care it is my life but I WOULD BE ASHAMED if I get deferred..............

hmmm

STILL HAVEN'T RECEIVED AN OFFER..........................................................
DEFER??????????????????????????????

Original degree: Mechanical Engineering @ UWS (1 year full time)
Transfer degree: Mechanical Engineering @ UNSW

ATAR: 62.75
GPA: 5.2
Course Cut off - 91.00

Extra - Applying for SCATS Application (SPECIAL CONSIDERATION FOR APPLICANTS
WITH TERTIARY STUDIES).

So, what are my chances?

EDIT: UNSW will take ATAR and GPA both into account - Ratio - 25:75. So, they will take 75% uni marks.

Original degree: Computer Science @ CSU (1 year full time)
Transfer degree: Advanced Computing @ ANU

ATAR: Low 60's (can't remember)
GPA: 5.75
Course Cut off - 90.00

extra: Applied for special consideration for only my GPA to be taken into account

anyone know what are my chances, from everything I've looked at it should be okayish all the tables I've found on the internet suggest that a 5.75 GPA even from a class 2 institution seems to still be atleast >90 some even saying thats its in the high 90's (97, etc). But it seems nigh on impossible to discern what ANU are using for it, I rang the admissions office and they said to speak to the specific college that I was applying to. then when I spoke to the college they said to speak to the admissions office -_-.

If I'm planning to do business/law @ UTS can I transfer to comm/law @ UNSW after 1 year (assuming I get distinction average) or do I need to initially study Comm/law at Macquarie or UWS?

Hi Rono. Just an insight regarding transfers to UNSW. It's widely said that external transfer (i.e. through UAC from a different uni) is comparably harder than an internal transfer (within the same uni), which is available at UNSW.
If you're wanting to study Comm/law at UNSW and have been offered Bus/law (congrats to you!). I'd probably suggest you apply for UNSW Commerce, if that is possible.
UNSW internal transfer is rather a less complicated process than any application through UAC (and saves you the application fee!).
UNSW comm/law requires an ATAR of 95+ (if you've been offered bus/law at uts, you should tick the box for that) and a Distinction average in your tertiary study.
But just a little warning, if you don't achieve a D avg in Uni in the first year, your chances of studying law as undergrad is gone as internal transfers are only available for 1st years.
But then again, you can study postgrad law. Just an advice!

On a completely different note! Anyone successful with their transfers??
