Hello, as you can see from the title, I am an international student from an underrepresented country who would like to transfer to St John’s for Fall 2019. I am a high school senior now and, although, I have applied to some colleges in US this year, I was only accepted at the one which I couldn’t afford so my only option is to study at my local university.
When I discovered St John’s, I knew it would be a perfect fit for me but it was already late to apply (pass the RD deadline). I know that they have Rolling Admissions but as an international who needs a lot of aid, I thought it would be better to try transferring.
So, I have a few questions:
- Do transfer students get the same treatment in the admissions process (since everyone starts as freshmen)?
- Is there any difference between Annapolis and Santa Fe campus regarding financial aid? Also, do they meet 100% demonstrated need if they accept you?
- Do I have a better chance of getting accepted if I apply EA?
- How much do they care about SAT/ACT? Would it be sufficient if I only send them TOEFL (my overall score is over 100)?
Thank you for reading this, I would appreciate anyone’s help.
P.S. If there are any internationals here who are currently studying at St John’s, I would like hear about your experience.
