I am interested in applying as a Sophomore transfer student to various schools for the upcoming Fall 2011 year. How important are high school statistics when applying in such a situation?
There are some schools I am applying to in which I would have had a target/match/safety chance had I applied as a HS senior. However, my college GPA may be lower, because let's face it - college is hard and it doesn't help that the institution I currently attend enforces a grade deflation policy. \: I currently attend a Top 5 LAC; will this help in anyway if I am applying to a school of lower rank? Will this give me any leniency (can't think of a better word) when admissions observe my college GPA?
I don't really know how to sum up my question... how do transfer chances look for me if I have a strong HS record and an average college GPA (3.33 area is the average GPA at my school)?
