George Mason Transfer Help!!


Hi. I want to know the chances of me getting into George Mason as a Spring 2016 transfer BS in Community Health major. I am currently an undergraduate student at another accredited public college, and after my first semester I will have 19 college credits (I took an english college credit at community college [received an A] that is transferable to both Mason and the school I currently attend----and I am taking 16 credits at the college I am currently at). Mason requests that transfer students have at least 30 college credits, but states that students that with less than 30 college credits can still apply to transfer but must meet GMU Freshman requirements (send high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores). My record is as follows:

None of us know enough about GMU admissions to tell you that you will get in, but there isn’t any reason for you not to apply. If you truly believe you will be happier there, send the application.

I don’t know much about Mason transfer procedures, but as a straight freshman app, Mason would have probably been a safety for you, especially if you are instate. I’d say you have a fairly good shot at admissions.
