BU Transfer Students

<p>Does anyone know a more exact time around BU will be letting transfer students know their decision for the Fall 2010?</p>

<p>hahhaha good, I made a topic about this a few hours ago- an nobody replied (>_<), but now I feel better in knowing that another transfer did not get notified yet. </p>

<p>I always thought we would get notified April 1st because that's what Collegeboard says, but who knows. I have heard Monday from other people as well.</p>

<p>Haha sorry I completely missed it. I really hope it's either one of those. I feel like it's much later than that because the deadline is April first, and even though I applied a month ago, I feel like they wouldn't let us know so early. I can't take waiting anymore.</p>

<p>That would make sense, but when exactly do they have time to review the applications...? Don't we have to accept by May 1st or is that just for Freshman?</p>

<p>I sent my application on March 1st, so hopefully they actually look at our applications since we sent them early. I have a feeling all those people who sent then now, will be glanced over and tossed if they do not meet the smallest of detail.</p>

<p>I wonder if we are the only transfers in this forum. </p>

<p>I am applying to the School of Education, what about you?</p>

<p>It doesn't seem like there are any other transfers haha. I applied to CAS for French. I got into BU when I was applying as a freshmen last year, but I didn't end up going: long story. For some reason, I feel like the criteria for getting accepted to BU as a transfer is much harder. I hope that isn't true though. What are you majoring in?</p>

<p>Bilingual Education :)</p>

<p>Transfer Students admission decisions mailed and available online on students' BU Web Accounts MID-MAY to MID-JUNE. I applied as a transfer to SHA.</p>

<p>Mid-May to Mid-June?</p>

<p>That sucks, because most of my schools require a decision by May 1st. So, i guess this means i write off BU?</p>

<p>@erikmoonwalks</p>

<p>that's what I was thinking, that is a pretty long time. That would mean I would either have to accept another school and forget BU or take my chances with getting accepted and go with BU.</p>

<p>Do the schools you're applying to have the option of refunding your deposit if later accepted at BU? Just something to look into...</p>

<p>There's that, and also I have to put my deposit down if I'm still attending my current school by June I'm very sure. It would really be so much easier to just hear from them a little earlier.</p>

<p>When is the BU deposit due? It's so unreasonable to give a response mid-may to mid-june when most colleges require their deposits by May.</p>

<p>@scribistan: It depends on the school. Northeastern asks for their deposits by May 1st, I believe, and you can get a percentage of your refund depending on how long after you withdraw.</p>

<p>mgm91- Are you sure the same goes for for transfer students? I believe the application deadline for transfers at Northeastern isn't even until May 1st. Schools expecting deposits so early from transfers just seems a little off to me...</p>

<p>I was accepted to Northeastern as a transfer, the deadline is May 1st.</p>

<p>Yeah, I know. Trust me, I feel the same exact way. We transfer students get our decisions so late and do not get enough time to respond. I was accepted to Northeastern too, and they're asking for their deposit by May 1st. I spoke to someone at BU admissions and they suggested asking Northeastern for a extension, but its not like I can ask them for an extra month and a half. As for BU, their deposit is due 2 weeks after you get accepted, but you can ask for an extension (one week) if you need more time.</p>

<p>I called the officer earlier today, and they said that the decisions are going out on a rolling basis, but they tend to start doing them in mid-May.</p>

<p>Oh thats so great! I sent my app back in January. Thank you for the information!</p>

<p>I applied but they seem to send you the letter from may-the end of June</p>

<p>Eeks, I sent in my app the 29th of March, hope I won't be waiting until June for a decision! =/ </p>

<p>What majors are you guys applying for? Does anyone know how many transfer students BU generally accepts?</p>

<p>collegeboard says 753 out of 2,386. 247 out of 753 actually enrolled. not sure how recent those numbers are.</p>
