<p>Hi. I'm a HUGE Notre Dame fan, have a sis and brother-in-law who went there, and am applying there, myself.</p>
<p>I recently met a woman from Notre Dame's Women in Engineering Program at a conference I attended. Here is what I believe I CAN tell you re. Notre Dame's acceptance rate for transfer students:
Have a very good SAT score
If you are a woman applying in engineering, especially aeronautical and astronautical engineering, it helps. The conference I attended made it very clear that EVERYONE in aerospace is trying to get more students into this field, and Notre Dame has a program specifically for women. So, if you have any inclination towards this and want to go to Notre Dame, major in AAE. It will improve your chances of acceptance.
I am under the impression that applicants in the hard sciences will be more readily accepted. Again, there is a tremendous demand for people in math, science, and engineering majors these days. If you want to transfer, your chances improve if you're in one of these majors. Being a woman helps, too.
Try to find someone at the admissions office with whom you can correspond.
Get great letters of reference
Have some quiet serious school spirit.</p>
