<p>Question: Do I have a chance of getting in? Should I retake the SATs/ACT?</p>

<p>Shannonwj16 - I'd say we're similar in stats. I wouldn't retake the SAT/ACT b/c they do fall into the lower level of Tufts admissions. Plus, you've done ECs that show commitment to your intended field of study. Chance me please :)</p>

<p>Question for you guys, if you don't mind: why are you transferring? How have you liked BU and Drexel? Both are or have been on our lists! Thanks.</p>

<p>@Whackadoodle: Drexel is very career focused, everything is about preparing for the workplace. I want a school that entertains "learning for learning's sake". So for me, my main reason for wanting to transfer would be academic focus.</p>

<p>I am also applying to transfer to Tufts as a Sophomore in the Fall</p>

<p>I am also applying to vanderbilt as a sophomore transfer in the fall</p>

<p>Hi, I'm applying for junior standing this fall.</p>

<p>HS: 3.4, 7 AP's</p>

<p>College (large state): 3.95, 76 Credits</p>

<p>I am applying as a sophomore transfer.</p>

<p>HS GPA: 4.25 weighted, don't remember what unweighted was but I do have an F on my transcript :/
SAT: 2050</p>

<p>College: large state university
Major: Biology
GPA: 3.97</p>

<p>pretty lackluster extracurriculars</p>

<p>I know my chances are looking pretty dismal but even if I do get rejected, at least I won't be asking myself "What if?"
Good luck to all of you guys!</p>

<p>Just out of curiosity, does anyone have an idea of when we will receive notification? I read somewhere that it could be as late as sometime in June...I really hope that's not the case.</p>

<p>Does anyone know the average GPA for a non-engineering transfer admit?</p>

<p>transferring from BU!</p>

<p>I have applied as a transfer into the International Affairs program with a spanish minor. I am from Western mass and have been at a community college for two years transfering in (maybe) with 60ish credits and a 3.5 gpa. I have been out of hugh school for a few years so no SATs, 25 years old. Wrote an essay about backpacking around the world for a few years afer high school and meeting a Vietnamese ex amry officer and how his life had been influenced and changed by others and how his life contrasted my old high school teacher who had been shot in Vietnam. </p>

<p>I have strong community work like teaching English/skiing in Argentina, working in an orphanage in Cambodia, teaching skiing to underprivlidged kids on Vermont and working with red cross ect.</p>

<p>Anyone hear anything. Last year's thread said letters started to go out yesterday</p>

<p>Just went on the TAMS website and it said my decision was available....I got rejected. However, my friend who also applied doesn't have a decision up yet. This could be just for the engineering applicants</p>

<p>That sucks, sorry to hear that. </p>

<p>Im a poly sci transfer, nothing yet for me.</p>

<p>Just looked at my TAMS account I was rejected. =/ I was afraid this was going to happen...The transfer acceptance rate is much lower than the freshmen accceptance rate.</p>

<p>guys - did your rejection letters say anything about the rate or the applicants / if you could copy and paste it I'd super appreciate it.</p>

<p>I'm so sorry guys :( I know you'll get in somewhere great and end up somewhere you love. Best</p>
