Transfer from VT to UVA

<p>i live near the bookstore at vawter. i've never heard of harris/millis?</p>

<p>wait, do you go to UVM?</p>

<p>Hey, thanks jaek99 for your help. Do you think that UVA is REALLY not an option at all this year? I did have the intention of applying as a sophomore. Would it be best if I retake my SAT? I'm really mad that my teachers and crap advice given to me at the beginning of class scheduling can truly screw me over. I really can't stand another year at VT.</p>

<p>SATs aren't going to really help you unless you can get near-perfect scores. Don't worry about your SATs.</p>

<p>Although I do not have the link right now, I have read on UVAs website that the A&S schools seriously consider transfer applicants with at least a B+ average (3.33). </p>

<p>When I spoke with Transfer Dean Roberts last semester, he told me that he expects at least a 3.4.</p>

<p>You should apply anyways. If you get rejected - keep your grades up and apply again the following year.</p>

<p>there is always hope....don't worry about it much...work hard and show them you're working hard....if you don't get in for next fall, apply for spring</p>

<p>thanks you guys, it just seems that everyone else I've talked to is more qualified than I am for applying this year. If any of you guys have met Greg Roberts, is he a nice guy.... that values young children with a song in their heart... or does he just love crushing your soul during interviews? I had a horrible experience with my Advisor at VT.... which of course doesn't help my allegiance to the school at all. But the President from GMU was a saint to me.</p>

<p>Dean Roberts is very friendly </p>

<p>you should definately go visit him before you apply</p>

<p>while your there, take a campus tour and consider sitting in on a class</p>

<p>yeah, I go to UVA almost every other weekend and know the campus very well. I love the school. </p>

<p>Do you attend UVA jaek99? Were you a transfer if you do go?</p>

<p>i'm matriculating as a transfer student for the Spring 2006 term. Although I initially considered majoring in Philosophy, I changed my mind; I'm going to major in economics.</p>

<p>are you planning on applying for the Fall 2006 term? If so, you will only have your 1st semester grades to send in.</p>

<p>Thus, though your estimated projection of a 3.7 Spring semester GPA is impressive, your current cumulative GPA will be unaffected by next semesters grade at the time of your application. </p>

<p>You could try applying for Spring 2007, but it quite difficult to transfer in for the Spring semester as UVA takes fewer than ~30 transfer students.</p>

<p>Quick question, is a varied courseload (as in many different subjects) very much preferred in admissions? Or can I just take my three political science classes since they’re junior and senior level : ) It’s a 3000 level PSCI or Econ 2005…..</p>

<p>Transfer to William & Mary wooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>Haha, yeah thanks for the idea; I've been pondering W&M too. But it's not quite me as much as UVA is. My best friend is going to transfer there though.</p>

<p>I might transfer out. It's really boring.</p>

<p>before you take electives or even major classes, try to fulfill all general reqs that are listed on UVa's website.</p>

<p>also, check the transfer evaluator to make sure all your courses transfer over.</p>

<p>So far, all my credits would transfer over to UVA (according to their list posted last fall). I am wondering though, if a class credit can fulfil more than one transfer areas? and if an AP credit I recieved at VT would transfer over, or if UVA will reevaluate my AP scores (losing 12 credits b/c of transferring would suck).</p>

<p>Here's what I have so far of the transfer requirements (inc. AP credits in VT) : </p>

<p>•DONE English Composition(3) English 1105 (AP) / 1106 = 6 credits?, a 3 on the AP exam</p>

<p>•Foreign Languages -no language requirement but I have 4/5 yrs of high school language</p>

<p>•Natural Sciences and Mathematics (12) boil 1005/1006, no math requirement yet because my Math is a lower level = 6 credits for requirement, 9 taken total</p>

<p>•Done Social Sciences (6) - Courses in anthropology, economics , government, linguistics, psychology, or sociology. Psci 1014, Econ 2005 = 6 credits</p>

<p>•Done Humanities (6) - One course in two of the following three groups: literature, fine arts or moral, philosophical and religious thought. Art 1514 (AP), political theory Psci 3754, Phil 3454 a phil of religion class. = 9 credits</p>

<p>•Done Historical Studies (3) Hist 1214 (AP), Hist 1XXX (AP) = 6 credits?</p>

<p>•Done Non-Western Perspective (3) - Psci 1024, comparative gov't = 3 credits</p>

<p>As far as AP classes go, UVA will reevaluate your credits based on their system. They don't take any 3's they'll take some 4's for certain classes. For foreign language if you transfer you can take a placement test and maybe place out or be placed in a higher level. Either way you must finish through 202 of your language.</p>

<p>I got a 4 on the AP art and world history exams</p>
