TAMU Transfer Fall 2020

Hi everyone,

I decided to create this forum for those of us who are planning ahead for next year.

I am applying to A&M with my first choice major being Psychology B.S. and my second choice major being Psychology B.A. I am currently working in a lab at a medical school in the field of Neuroscience, but my interests also lie in the field of psychiatry and mood disorders. I have also done Psychology research at a top school (ranked #4 in the world) in the topic of child cognition my first year. I am taking all of the necessary courses to transfer this semester at a local community college. (I originally went to another school for my first two years of college where I did not do well so I decided to come back home.) My GPA is a 3.2, but if I make an A in one of the math classes I am currently taking I will be at a 3.5. For letters of recommendation, I have the psychology department chair of my previous school (ranked in the top 20 universities in the U.S.) and the head of the lab of my current research job willing to write me letters of recommendation. I also was secretary and elected president of an organization that I was a member of, and have volunteered at multiple organizations (children’s hospitals, habitat for humanity, multicultural events, etc) these past few years. I decided with the psychology major since TAMU does not have a Neuroscience major and I am more interested in the cognitive side of the field. I am looking into possibly doing the Neuroscience minor if admitted. I know my grades are not strong, which is why I am concerned. What would you say are my chances? What would you recommend I do to strengthen my chances? Thank you for taking the time to read this and good luck to everyone!

    @freddiehg88 You should have no trouble getting in for the Fall with those stats (get that A in Math). Your ECs are great to. My only hesitation is on your first and second choice. If you get denied by BS you'll most likely get denied by BA since same department, just one is more language requirement than the BS. May want to change that to fit your degree wants.. Have you looked at forensic science as maybe your 2nd choice major?
