Which ivy league school is most accepting of high achieving transfers?
Ending my second year with very competitive near perfect college GPA, looking to transfer to more academically focus school. Either a small liberal arts college or ivy.

Congratulations on your hard work and your success! Do you have an idea of your field of study? If so, I would suggest that you explore those colleges which have a great reputation in your area of interest. Once you have narrowed down your list, I would suggest that you visit those schools, if possible. You will want to take a tour of the campus, speak with students and professors in your areas of interest. You want to focus more on which schools feel like a good fit for you. If the school has an open house event, this would be a good time to visit as you will have the opportunity to speak with students, faculty and advisors. You will be able to gather information which will help you in making an informed decision. Focus more on the schools that feel like a good fit. With such a high GPA, most schools should welcome you.
Best of luck.

The University of Pennsylvania and Brown University also accept a certain number of transfers each year.
Competition is rigorous for admission, as it is for all Ivy League institutions, so definitely review their transfer requirements.

Hi, Bridget: It's great to hear that you have done well so far in college. Transferring to another college as a junior is a challenge to be sure, but one that is possible. As you already know the admissions season for next fall has come and gone, so it may be particularly difficult to find a place in a top ranked school at this point. My recommendation,however, is that you contact your target schools' admissions offices and ask about the transfer process and then make a decision about how/when and, of course, where you want to apply. Schools are always looking for top talent and your profile may very well appeal. I think you will find that admissions offices will be responsive to your inquiries. Best of luck and please follow up with more questions.
