courses for a transfer student

edited December 2010 in Transfer Students
I am applying as 2 about 7 schools as a junior transfer. Since every school has different majors, I am going to be applying to some schools as a business major and some as a psych major. however, I am only going to be taking about 2 psych classes this semester. Will the fact that I have very little courses in my prospective major looked down upon by the admission officers? Do they really care about wether the courses are close to your major or they simply want to see some focus and a high gpa is more important.

Thanks so much

    it all just depends. depends on school and how they weed out the acceptable and unacceptable.

    In general though, I'd say most schools want to see a transfer student's application filled with major related courses and high GPA. General Ed should be your second priority.


    Schools?
    GPA?
    more info please.
