Chances of Getting in to JMU?

<p>I'm currently a freshman at Christopher Newport University. I want to transfer to James Madison. I was fairly confident about getting in to the fall semester, however, the more I read their admission requirements, the scarier it sounds. They stress the difficulty of entering as a sophomore, and I've heard JMU is very inconsistent with who they let in and who they dont.</p>

<p>In high school I was a varsity athlete and captain, in National Honor Society and Young Democrats, took International Bacculareate courses and graduated in the top 15% with a 4.0 GPA. My SAT score was 1260 (without Writing). I am likely getting a 3.75 this semester and after I complete this year I should have earned 31 credits from CNU. I am in the President's Leadership Program here, which is an "honor" but no other school offers anything like it, so I'm not sure if they'll be impressed. I never applied to JMU as a high school student.</p>

<p>Is it likely I will get in? What are some things I can do to ensure my admission. Thanks.</p>

<p>JMU is picky about freshman and sophomore transfers. I was just accepted for the Spring 2012 semester but I am transferring in with an AA. What is your overall GPA for college?</p>

<p>My semester is not complete, but as of right now it is a 3.75.</p>

<p>They may want more college credits from you before you transfer but you surely have a shot with that GPA. I have heard that it is difficult to transfer in as a sophomore but I was told its really difficult to transfer in the Spring and it worked out for me so its worth a shot for you to at least try. If not, maybe you can take some credits at CC if you don't want to stay where you are.</p>
