Okay, as I said before, if I decide to major in Engineering, I might transfer to WPI. I was just wondering how hard is it to transfer to WPI??
-How many transfer students they usually accept each year?
-Do transfer students receive as much Fin. Aid. as freshmen students?
-Will it be hard to adjust to WPI's curriculum if I transfer to WPI?
All the WPI students who are out there and the parents who have kids going to WPI, if you can PLEASE PLEASE could answer these questions, I would really appreciate it.
I wouldn't think about transferring now. Just be happy where you are, and if you find that you don't like BC, you can think about it then (you will have plenty of time). When I came to WPI, I was seriously thinking about transferring to Johns Hopkins because of their amazing neuroscience program. But then I realized that I really loved signal analysis, and that WPI has a great program in that area. So I decided to stay, and I am very happy here.
