I applied last year to be a freshman at Northeastern. After being deferred from Early Action, I got accepted into the NUin program. However, I had to decline the school because I wasn't able to pay the NUin bill (the rest of my FA was actually pretty good)
I wanted to apply to see if I could get in as a spring transfer this year. However, I'm kind of worried that I'm not gonna get accepted. I think a big factor in my getting accepted second time around was a letter that my counselor wrote saying how I was a good fit for the school, how my grades & community service hours changed, etc.
Should I apply again this year as a spring transfer? Or should I maybe wait 2 years at the school I'm going to now (it's literally right now the street from NU) and apply then? There's also the option of me applying at the end of this first year.
I'm pretty sure I could get my old guidance counselor to write a letter of recommendation again, but would that even make a difference? I don't think I would be able to make any real connections with anyone at my school for them to write a good letter. I just really want to go to NU, I was devastated when I had to decline admission
