Hey guys,
I am currently a senior in high school and is getting ready to commit to Brooklyn College. Even though I wasn't accepted into NYU, it is still my dream school and I am planning to transfer there for my 2nd year. Are there any tips anyone can give me to better ensure the chances of my transfer? I am aiming to apply to NYU CAS as a psychology major.

    Hi, Are you transferring into NYU for your 2nd year or Junior year? If you want to transfer after your first year, NYU will only have one semester's worth of grades from Brooklyn College to evaluate you, so you may want to take one or two summer courses as well to give NYU more to base their decision on. I would also try the ACT test over the SAT and get above a 30. Take a practice test online to see if ACT is better than the SAT for your skill set. Take one or two SAT subject tests in your strongest academic skill sets. Finally, work on improving your essay(s) for the transfer application.

    Currently transferring out of NYU. I'd recommend keeping your grades up and building close relationships with a couple of your professors so that you can have good rec letters. Also working and building up your ECs is essential

    Know that as a transfer you won't qualify for scholarships that will dent the cost. Maybe talk to NYU to see where you need to strengthen your application and take a gap year to work on it!

    I think NYU does not offer gap year for transfer student.

    Does anyone know if you can spring transfer to NYU CAS as a second-semester freshman? I will be attending a 4-year university in the fall, but I would prefer to go to NYU (I was rejected as a senior in hs), so would I be able to apply by November 1st, 2020 to get in for the January 2021 semester?

    It is definitely possible. Though it does say on the NYU website that transfer admissions is extremely competitive and that the most competitive transfer applicants have at least 32 transfer credits. But I applied this year with a lot less than 32 credits and recently got accepted, so it definitely can happen!
