transfering to penn as a sophomore..

<p>hey cc community</p>

<p>don't mean to sound like a prat, but what are the typical transfer student (as sophomore) stats that you know of??</p>

<p>for instance: avg gpa, college type (state, community, private)</p>

<p>come on, somebody please reply</p>

<p>I got accepted as a sophomore transfer.
college stats:
public (state flagship)
3.8 w/ honors courses</p>

<p>hs stats:
33 ACT
3.99 uw gpa (4.66 weighted)
salutatorian
got a bunch of school/state awards (one for being the most outstanding senior male of my hs class), one national award</p>

<p>remember, when transferring in as a sophomore, hs matters a lot as well, not just college.</p>

<p>4.0 at a "New Ivy"
Worked on the newspaper</p>

<p>3.3 at good public high school</p>

<p>Post this in the Transfer Students forum.</p>

<p>I transferred as a junior, but my stats were:</p>

<p>HS GPA: 3.96 (W)
College GPA (Univ. of Southern California): 3.85 (rigorous courseload and high-level courses)
SAT: 790 (V) 670 (M) 740-12 (W)
Softs: Stellar recommendations, very solid essays (IMHO)
Hooks: URM, conservatory caliber cellist, conductor</p>

<p>schrute is absolutely correct: your high school transcript is of enormous importance and can be a serious liability (or boon), but much less so than if you transfer as a junior.</p>
