    stats are excellent, but the 'Why BC?' essay will be key. In other words, what do you bring to the campus life?

    You are an excellent shape if you maintained a 4.0 all three semesters as a bio major at Tulane.
    The essay is very important to clarify what BC has to offer that Tulane does not. BC has been slightly over enrolling it’s freshman classes last couple of years. However students transfer for many reasons and you should have a very good shot.

    Look at the Boston College Fact Books from the past few years. Over the years you'll see transfer application numbers ranging from 1300 to over 2000, with acceptance rates ranging from 9% to 34%.

    It's impossible to predict what the transfer situation will be this year.

    Yes your stats are good. But you can believe you'll be in good company with other applicants having equally good stats.

    As bluebayou noted, make sure your application conveys to the adcoms "why BC" and the value you'll bring to the student body. Make them want you.

    Good stats are often viewed as a "check the box" item enabling the adcoms to turn to the more important parts of your application.
