Transfer?

<p>Does anyone have any experience as a transfer to Villanova? I'm a freshman at Fairfield University right now (received alot of money) and I know I could be at a much better school, academically. I am looking to transfer for the fall is 2012. I read somewhere that housing is tough. I wouldn't mind that I just hope it would still be easy to make friends. If you can tell me how I look that would be great. </p>

<p>You look like a strong applicant , transfers into A&S in easier than VSB or Engineering.
Transfers are dependent on estimates of students attrition and transfer yield rates. Based on the freshman retention rate of 95% , there are about 80-100 sophomore spots available.</p>

<p>Common Data set figures for 2010 transfer applicants:
Applicants 733
Applicants Admitted 257
Applicants Enrolled 120</p>

<p>Transfers get last shot at housing , and most end up living at Kaul Hall at Rosemont College about 2 miles away.

<p>I am currently a sophomore and I transfered to Nova' for the Fall of 2011. So far I am
loving the school. </p>

<p>The classes a great, the school pride is unbelievable and the people are amazing. </p>

<p>From a transfer's perspective here are a couple of things to keep in mind: If you plan on applying for financial aid, there is a good chance that they may not provide you with any financial assistance for your first year here. </p>

<p>Also as far as housing goes, a good amount of transfers received on campus housing this year. While a few did have to live over at Kaul hall on Rosemont's Campus,many have since moved over here. </p>

<p>As far as meeting people I would say to get involved as much as possible. </p>

<p>btw your ressume looks strong! good luck!</p>
