Prospective Junior Transfer
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)
As far as finances go I would be able to afford about 30,000 grand tops and if I do not receive enough aid I will remain at my current institution. From the list I have so far the majority of them meet full need although i am unaware if that remains true for transfers. But i did make sure to check that financial aid is still available and offered for transfers.
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 appreicate any input.
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.
