My S is very interested in Colorado College. He is seriously interested in the block schedule. Does anyone have any transfer experiences to share? S will be looking to transfer fall 2010.

    i was just accepted as a transfer for fall09. i would say that i would have been borderline as a freshman applicant (780-math; 730-verbal; 4.5W/3.5UW; 20-25% in graduating class; took 10 APs; 3.31 College GPA; dean's list my 1 semester at UNC-Chapel Hill) so it seems to have been comparably competitive. i would definately reccomend an interview as well, they are encouraged by admissions, and i was able to set one up near my home in NC: it was very relaxed, w/a CC grad who obviously loved the school, and only wanted to help others go there.

    Thanks for the info, my son is sooo excited at the prospect of transferring. We are planning a visit in the fall. Any financial aid offered? Just curious if transfers are offered any decent financial aid.
