Steps to a Higher Transfer Chance

so although I don't officially know that I have been rejected yet, I'm expecting it. My test scores do not reflect that of Georgetown's standards and therefore my rejection is coming in the mail soon.</p>

<p>Regardless, I still love Georgetown and believe that the environment is somewhere I would enjoy and fit in. So what should I be doing to stand a chance in the transfer games this upcoming year? Any feed back would be great.</p>

<p>Thank You!</p>

<p>I am wondering the same question. I read on the Georgetown Office of Admissions website that transfer applicants should retain a "B+" or better GPA in college to be seriously considered in the admissions process. That said, the average GPA for accepted transfer applicants is about 3.7; "most transfer students were in the top 15% of their graduating high school class."</p>

<p>I know they take SAT scores into consideration, as they do for first year applicants. I'm just not sure how much weight they place on those scores, compared to, say, the college GPA or professor recommendations. Any ideas?</p>

<p>How much they value undergraduate GPA, essays, and letters of recommendation more so than test scores and high school GPA seems to be the million dollar question everyone would like the answer to.</p>

<p>No one really knows for sure.</p>

<p>my best advice would be to visit campus if you haven't done so already, and to really express how much you love georgetown in your interview if you have one. other than that, i think all we can do is wait :( sucks</p>
