Hi everybody! I know the application isn't due for a few months, but I don't see a thread yet for spring semester transfers, so maybe this can be it. I'll be applying for CNS Biology.

    I'm also applying to transfer to UT for Spring 2021! Did you already submit your application? I'm applying for the Government major.

    Awesome! And no, not yet. I've been busy with a summer Calc class so I'm going to try to knock out my application in August. What about you?

    @makingthemost111 I submitted my app, transfer essays, and my college transcript a few days ago, but I have yet to even start my expanded resume :( I'm planning on waiting to get back to campus this august so I can ask for a professor recommendation in person, so I also don't think I'll have a complete application for a little while

    Hey! Did you get to find out any transfer statistics / info about the acceptance rate for UT CNS in the Spring semester? I am also a UT Biology Spring 2021 Applicant, but I haven't been able to find much info.

    @trynabesuccesful No, I haven't found much info either. Only that Spring admissions depend more on space available and less on merit than fall admissions do. I'll let you know if I find anything more specific.

    According to their transfer guide, I do not think that you are allowed to transfer to UT as an "undeclared." You have to choose a specific major while filling out your application. Also, Biology and Exercise Science are two different majors, if you want to apply for both, you have pick one as your first option and the other one as your second option. With many activities, you are definitely having a great resume, your GPA is good. However, sometimes UT is quite picky, you should have a back up plan!!
    Do you mind sharing the classes that you took? if you already have Cal1, and at least 2 major-level science classes, you should be fine!!

    Will submitting one essay hinder my chances of getting accepted?

    I'm pretty sure it's required to submit 2 essays.
