    I’m a freshman from Miami, Florida looking to transfer as a Sophmore for Fall 2020. My major is Psych

    I am Hispanic and female

    If i finish off with the grades I am predicting I should have an overall gpa of 3.86 by the end of Fall

    By the end of the spring semester i should have about 31 credits and I am a member of multiple clubs at my university. I also work 4 days a week for two different mothers.

    In high school I was a member of multiple clubs, completed over 200 service hours, was a member of the National Art Honors Society, and had a cumulative gpa of 3.85

    I am hoping to raise my ACT test score by retaking it next week...

    fingers crossed i get in!!!

    Hello, reading all of your profiles have gotten me nervous... But it's showing me other people's dedication and the reality of the admission competition! I'm not experienced in the ways of this system but I think all of the profiles mentioned thus far have great if not awesome chances of entering NCSU.

    For further context, I have yet to fully submit my applications; I know I'm late. For anyone reading, the transfer application deadline for NCSU through the Common Application is the 15th of February 2020. It's the 26th of January 2020 as I write this.

    Also, as you may have inferred from earlier, I'm one of the hopefuls trying to transfer from a community college in NC! I'm posting this so that future fretful students scouring these forums can find someone they're similar to, and see how they did in the admissions process... Because that's what I'm doing right now!

    Intended Major: Political Science
    College GPA: 3.95
    Credits Earned: 62
    Current/Former College: Durham Technical Community College

    Completed an Associate's in Arts (for transfer); will not be submitting any high school transcripts or SAT scores or the like.

    Stats:
    Asian Female, Filipino.

    Applying to:
    UNC-Chapel Hill
    North Carolina State University
    North Carolina Central University

    I'm hoping I get into at least 1 of the 3.
    I also hope all of you will get the choices you want, too, because you all sound like great people.

    @seizethesilver your profile looks amazing. There’s no need to worry, it’s just your self-doubt or nervousness that’s blocking you from seeing that you have a lot of potential to get into NC State or the other universities. If you followed the pathway plan and transfer requirements you will be fine. No worries, just relax and know that the hardest part was you earning your degrees, while getting accepted into NCSU will be a breeze. Good luck and no worries! I hope this helps.

    @blackchampion your stats look amazing. They will on ask for your high school grades if you under the age of 21 or have less than 30 hours as an international student. Just focus on finishing this semester with A's and B's or preferably A's and you will have nothing to worry about as long as you are take classes that are coursework specific regarding you psych major. Good luck.

    If it makes anyone feel any better I heard through the grapevine that you are considered a competitive applicant when you have a GPA of 3.5 and higher. It just becomes about the fact that you followed the requirements to transfer in that major and other applicants applying for that major. Basically if you have a good GPA and took specific courses pertaining to the major, you should be fine. Good luck everyone.

    Honest Question from an Active Duty military member..

    I get out of the military soon. I only have about, 9-12 credits under my belt. I missed the deadline to apply as a Undergrad for NC State. (I know, I suck.) Anyways, I want to attend but I'm thinking Community College won't be a bad idea after all. They already said I wont get accepted into the C3 program (like that matters?..) But I was reading the website and it says that NC State favors Associates Degrees when transferring. However, the requirement is only 30 credit hours. I only have so much military benefits lol..... Anyways, why can't I just go in community college for 2 semesters and get my competative degree requirements then transfer straight to NC State? Is it due to the fact its just....preference? Competative? Like, why go to community college for FOUR years..... That just seems like a waste of time if I'm truly aiming to get my B.S. in 3 years. Right? Am I missing something or is it really this easy? And if its this easy then why are you guys getting Associate degrees to begin with?

    Calc 2 A
    Calc 3 still taking

    Chem 1 B

    Competitive as far as grades go, I believe. I hope you elaborated a bit about your lack of access to extracurricular activities in your application, but your application sounds relatively strong anyway.

    Hey guys, I posted my stats in here in hopes to transfer but I actually decided to attend UNCW instead of state. However I will post whether or not I get in so that it can benefit someone else. I honestly lost interest in state after having to wait so long for decisions (I knew when they were released but didn't truly process how late it was). Good luck to you all! :)
