Hey guys,
I am currently looking to transfer to Northeastern. I am creating a thread to find others wanting to transfer there as well for Fall 2018. Would appreciate knowing everyone's stats!

    I just submitted my application last night!
    College GPA: 3.68
    1st semester: 3.38
    2nd semester: 3.72
    3rd semester: 4.00

    Academic Honors: Chancellor's List (1x), Dean's List (2x)
    ECs: Volunteer work, Internship with SuperPAC and Senate Campaign, Founder and Chairman of On Campus Political Organization, Exec. Director of State Chapter Political Organization , 30 hour/week part time job.
    Applying with 42 credits, will be enrolled with 57 credits, so I am not sending in my SAT scores and my H.S. GPA shouldn't be a factor.

    Northeastern is my first choice so I am hoping I get in!

    Currently a freshman at Fordham. I don't have a lot of stuff because I've only been at college for a semester :/

    Current College GPA: 3.918
    Extracurricular Activities (honestly didn't join that many clubs):
    -Asian Pacific American Coalition: Member, Fall 2017
    -Flash Magazine: Member, Fall 2017

    I technically signed up for and showed up to a few other clubs, but I don't know if they're worth putting down since I wasn't that involved.

    High School GPA: 3.5 (unweighted), 3.8 (weighted)
    SAT: 2120 one score, 2170 superscored (I think)

    Extracurricular Activities:

    -Some outside art competition stuff (freshman)
    -Outside tennis and gymnastics during my freshman and sophomore years
    -I had a job senior year (if that counts)
    -Community service stuff

    I think there was some other stuff, but I honestly can't remember most of the stuff I did in high school.

    If you have completed fewer than 24 credits when you apply they will look at your high school GPA and test scores. You may want to wait a year to transfer. Then they will only look at your college stats.

    Hi! I'm currently a second-semester college freshman at CSU Sacramento and I'm applying as an incoming sophomore to the Northeastern University School of Criminology and Criminal Justice... I didn't get in my first try during my senior year of high school, but I took the opportunity to improve and try to become a better person and a better student, and hopefully, I can this time! All feedback and advice, no matter how positive or negative, is super appreciated!

    Current College: California State University, Sacramento
    College GPA: 4.0
    College Units Acculumated: 41 (half of those are from like AP. I'm expected to have 61 at the end of my second semester...)
    High School GPA: 3.61 (Weighted) / 3.1 (Unweighted) Weak spot...
    SAT: 1890 Weak spot... :(
    ACT: Did not take
    College Extracurriculars:
    - Member of Three Student Government Committees (Student Relations, Academic Affairs, Appellate Council)
    - Board member of Rotaract (Social Media Coordinator)
    - R.A. Hall Council
    - Student Researcher for institute associated with CSU, Sacramento

    High School Extracurriculars:
    A bunch of clubs, but I'm really going to mention Speech and Debate, where I won 6th in the State of California at Duo Interpretation. The state and national competition happened after I submitted my freshman application to Northeastern so I wouldn't have been able to report on it.

    Let me know what you think!

    Go Huskies!

    Hey Guys! I just turned in my fafsa, and my Estimated Expected Family Contribution is 000112. I was wondering if you guys had any idea/estimate on how much aid I'd get/how much I would be paying if you guys had any friends at NEU who got aid from fafsa. Let me know! Thanks :)
  • TomSrOfBostonTomSrOfBoston Registered User Posts: 14,283 Senior Member
    @koreanincali Did you submit the CSS Profile which is required of all first time applicants? What does the NPC indicate your expected contribution will be?
  • koreanincalikoreanincali Registered User Posts: 128 Junior Member
    @TomSrOfBoston no I haven't, I only did FAFSA. Is the CSS Profile also required of transfer students?
  • mag3646mag3646 Registered User Posts: 20 New Member
    I am looking to transfer in the fall. I've only just started looking though. When is the application deadline?
    Also, do I have a shot?
    Major: Computer Science
    College GPA: 3.3 (going to be higher at the end of this semester)
    Current school: well known and ranks higher than Northeastern for CS nationally
    Originally from New England, but moved pretty far to my current school
    Clubs: various CS related clubs, women in computing, game development, organized a hackathon, outside projects
    Don't remember my ACT or SAT scores, but I think they were a little above national average.

    Northeastern was my top choice when applying to colleges last year, but I was deferred then rejected :(
