I have applied to transfer to Harvard as an international candidate. What about you?

And I did create a thread already for transfer talks: Harvard Transfer 2025

Yeah see, thats a wrong way to label it as it simply does not make sense. We would not be class of 2025 and we would not be transferring to the class of 2025 as well.


True! My mistake


Also, have you also applied to Harvard for transfer admissions?

Yes I have

Cool stats! Since you are a freshman, they would look closely at your high/middle school record.


I have applied as a transfer as well, and I was wondering if anyone got an interview invitation yet?

Hey! Glad to hear that you have applied too… are you US or an international candidate?

No, I have not got interview yet.

US candidate.

I guess after April 6th, interview requests for transfers will start. What are your thoughts as to the process this year? Everything is so different this year.

The current process is long and delayed. They have many applicants and I fear it will pour over into the transfer application process, and they may delay their decisions. I’m just hoping for an interview haha.

It’s even harder for internationals. I had applied to Harvard REA for freshman admissions and was deferred. Does this also make an impact on decisions?

And it’s mentioned on-site that in most of the situations, there is no need for an interview! But I do believe, getting one shows on the bright side.

What other colleges have you applied to for transfers?

I agree, and I maybe cynical, but I find their words dont always match there actions / beliefs and I also feel like getting an interview request is a good omen.

I’ve applied to transfer to Stony Brook University (accepted; I dont want to go there) and Stanford.

True. And do you think applying freshman and getting deferred is also something that will make an impact?

But I am also scared that the overwhelming number of freshmen applications this year could make their mood only worse, if not bad. and we are at risk :crazy_face:

I dont understand your question just based on fundamentals. How can that impact transfers? We’re a different pool and aren’t considered for the freshman class.
