<p>Hello all, I am a sophomore, out-of-state student thinking of transferring to a college in my home state of Massachusetts. However, I am very unfamiliar with the Transfer process. Do transfer students apply to universities at the same time as high school students normally would? </p>
<p>Major: Biology (pre-med/pre-dent)
Schools interested in: Northeastern University, Tufts University, Boston University, UMASS </p>
<p>1) is it advisable for me to transfer schools as a pre-med student? I heard that your GPA resets once switching to a new school
2) is it possible for transfer students to receive financial aid/earn scholarships?
3) are transfer applications binding? (do i have to go to the college if i am accepted?)
thanks for the help</p>
