Best way to transfer in?
My son was accepted into Chapel Hill this coming fall. He is considering going to a local community college and reapplying next year. He is contemplating this to save money. He has looked at all the courses and can find enough to transfer. He would have 57 credits after 1 year of Community College including the courses he took in high school (all appear to transfer. His scores - ( 1450 SAT- near perfect Math) Drum Major, many extra-curricular activities, 4.0 unweighted. He is not first generation or a minority. What can he do during the next year to increase his chances when he reapplies? The transfer in rate looks like about 35% of applicants. Do acceptance chances increase as a Sophomore or a Junior?
