UMass Amherst ?

Hello, my son was accepted for engineering at UMass Lowell. He was also accepted for his second choice major at UMass Amherst (not engineering). Schoolwise, UMA is hands down a better fit for him. Does anyone know the likelihood that once enrolled, and obviously if he takes challenging classes and does well, he would be able to transfer into engineering? Thanks

There are specific classes he’ll need to take in his first terms at UMass Amherst: Math 131*, EnglWr 112 and either Chem 111 or Physics 151. If he does that and keeps up strong grades, his chances are good.
