Hello! Transferring to University of Wisconsin-Madison can be competitive, but it's not impossible by any means. In general, transfer acceptance rates are a little over 50%, which is comparable to the rate for first-year applicants.

Keep in mind that UW-Madison has specific credit and course requirements for transfer students, so it's important to do your research on these requirements and ensure that you meet them before applying. It's also worth noting that some programs and majors have more competitive admission rates than others.

Additionally, it's essential to maintain good academic standing at your current institution. A strong GPA and a demonstrated track record of success in your courses will play a significant role in UW Madison's admissions decision. Additionally, showcasing involvement in extracurricular activities and expressing a clear reason for wanting to transfer to UW-Madison can strengthen your application - you don't want to speak down on your current institution, but rather explain why UW Madison can offer you something that nowhere else can.

Good luck with your transfer application!
