Transfer Question

<p>Hello everyone,</p>

<p>I am currently a freshman at a terribly small - and relatively unknown - four-year university, and would like to transfer. This is not a very rare event, I imagine.</p>

<p>My problem is this: as I am just in my third week of school, how do I approach my instructors and advisor to ask them to fill out the required application paperwork? To be blunt, these people literally have no idea who I am. </p>

<p>Considering the fact that any one of my high school instructors would write a glowing recommendation, I feel cheated knowing that these individuals will be providing such an important part to my application. </p>

<p>Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation? Share your insight. Please and thank you!</p>

<p>Did you have any discussion of your problems with your advisor?
Transferring may not be the best solution to your problems.</p>

<p>Do you plan on not finishing out the semester there? At the 3rd week you are probably on the hook for that tuition and would be looking W's on a transcript if you decided to bail now. Could you look into making the jump for the coming semester?</p>

<p>I would be finishing out this year.</p>

<p>Most deadlines aren't until late winter/early spring, so you wait and ask for LORs after you finish fall semester. If you are applying to a rolling school, it is difficult to get a good LOR AND apply early.</p>
