Hello! I’m a first-year student at Wellesley, and though I acknowledge it’s a bit early, I believe I would like to transfer to Barnard in the upcoming year. Throughout the summer, I began to realize my strong desire to be located directly in an urban city. I’m definitely planning on sticking it out this upcoming year here, but I believe Barnard’s just a bit more akin to where my happiness lies (I didn’t apply senior year for context though I wish I did).
Would I potentially come from an advantageous position as a student transferring from Wellesley? This is of course assuming I maintain a solid GPA and get involved in ECs. I’m also planning on applying to a few other institutions with urban campuses, but Barnard is one of my tops.
