Fall 2013 Transfer Chance at GW, American, Richmond?
Hello College Confidential, I am a rising Sophomore at the University of Connecticut looking to transfer out. Feel free to pm me if interested in the specific reasons. As of the end of my Freshman year I received a 3.75 with 30 credits as a political science major. I plan to transfer at the end of my sophomore year which would allow me to enter the new university my Junior Year. From reading about the transfer requirements for incoming juniors(60 units) most of the colleges do not require your SAT anymore and high school grades are not highly important. Either way here are my stats:
High school Gpa: 3.5uw, 3.7w with 3 APs and plenty of honors
Top 10 ranked NJ public school
SAT:1200/1600, 620cr, 580 math, 600 writing
URM African American Male (If that matters)
Schools on my list so far:
George Washington University
University of Richmond
William and Mary
None of the schools above require SAT or ACT for students applying as incoming juniors.
I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions( I would prefer a smallish school and on the east coast). I plan to finish my sophomore year with at least 60 credits and with the potential to raise my gpa up to a 3.88 which i will try my hardest to do. Thank you so much to everyone taking the time to read this I really appreciate any input.
WOULD ALSO LOVE IF THE SCHOOL WASNT IN THE MIDDLE OF NO WHERE!
If it helps these are the schools I was accepted into as a Freshman applicant: University of Maryland CP, Drexel, Temple, UConn Storrs, Penn State UP, Hofstra, Pitt, Syracuse, James Madison, and Rutgers New Brunswick.(Thought I wanted a big name state school when applying boy I was wrong)
THANK YOU !!!! Super open to suggestions(only planning to add one more school to this list ideally).
