    I’m a student at a large state flagship who’s interested in transferring to Cornell/Brown/Michigan/Columbia/Georgetown as a Math/Econ major. Is 3.9+ (around a 3.92) considered competitive? I understand the higher the better- most of my grades are As, but I have two A-s, and B+ from an upper level math course (500 level) I took as a freshman (learned my lesson). Since then, my grades have improved. I’m assuming that with a 3.9+ GPA, other factors such as Essays/ECs have a greater impact.

    You’re exactly right. 3.9+ is as solid as you need, GPA-wise. At the most selective schools, the rest comes down to how your ECs, letters of rec, and essays compare with those of the other applicants.
