Fall 2020 Transfer

UofSCtoUVaUofSCtoUVa 0 replies1 threads New Member
Realized it's a bit early but I've been working really hard at my school to be able to transfer for fall of 2020. Hey guys. Was hoping to get chanced (by %) of the odds of my acceptance to UVA. I plan to major in Aerospace Engineering

Here are my stats:
White dude
College: the University of South Carolina (Out of State)
College GPA: 4.0 (Currently and hoping to maintain but this is using UoSC's system where anything above a 90 is an A but Im still trying to get all A's or higher.)
Total Credit Hours: 35
*All class credits should transfer and I'm on track to meet all requirements
High School GPA: 3.1 unweighted (Did take AP's but my school didn't offer many)
High School Class Rank: Didn't Rank
SAT score: 1290

My EC's in College:
Ultimate Frisbee Club Team
Esports Team

Unsure where to put this if I do mention it but I'm also a twitch streamer with relatively minor success(65 followers and 600 views) so I am a twitch affiliate but I feel this may be too minor to include.

EC's in high school:
Track Team
Frisbee Team
Tennis team outside of school
Worked a job over the summer
Ran a club focusing on discussions about Current events namely politics.
Part of a Dungeons and Dragon Club
Went on a few service trips to a Native American Reservation and West Virginia
I canvassed for a presidential candidate during the Democratic Primaries

I plan on getting a second recommendation letter from my former employer who knows me very well both professionally and cordially, so I believe it will be a strong essay.

If I can get a 4.0 I will be part of the president's list at UofSC (14% of Campus) or if I get between 3.5 and 3.99 I will make deans list.

Haven't written my essay but I would like to write about how I previously stunted myself academically by underperforming but after realizing that fact I've started owning up to that fact, addressing it, and now transferring to a school like UVA would be the fruit of my labors, and the reason I chose UVA is because it's been my dream school because my cousins who are akin to my older brothers went there and I fell in love with it, going to many sports games there.

My top school right now is UVA, but I'm also considering applying to Vanderbilt, UPenn, Princeton(I won't get in but my cousin goes there for grad school and I love it there.), Carnegie Mellon, and Duke. Unsure if there are any others I want to consider or remove. UVA is my top pick but if I got into any of these schools and UVA I would have to visit them to make sure.

    I was wondering anyone could chance me/ tell me if it's worth applying to Vanderbilt? Fall 2020 potential transfer
    College Stats:
    GPA: 3.67 (probably around 3.7-3.8 when I apply)
    Political Science/ History Major (i'm currently doing both but would it be better to apply for one specifically, if so which one?)
    Credits Completed at time of application: 64
    Current School: California Community College
    Courses taken: IGETC (GE's done), and major classes for political science and history done

    High School Stats
    SAT: 1160 (I know awful, why I went to community college)
    GPA: 3.9-4.1 Can't remember exactly

    Involved with research and in charge of many clubs at CC. a lot of extra curriculars as well as working part time. Will have very compelling letters of rec and a good essay. Unsure if I should even bother applying with my SAT score

    College GPA: should be something like a 3.8-4.0

    @heyigotnoclue I just realized I wrote that wrong. I'm taking 15 credits right now, and 25 should transfer from AP credits.

    Hey guys, Applying to CAS as well

    My stats:
    HS: GPA 3.8 Unweighted
    Sat/Act: 1220 (but I've heard they don't care past the first year)
    2x Internetworking State Champion
    FBLA Business State Finalist
    Went to the Statewide Governor's School Program (if that matters)

    Virginia Tech's Honors College (In-state)
    GPA: 3.6 (I had one C that destroyed my gpa but was first semester and haven't gotten less than an A- in any other class)
    (52 credits total , currently enrolled in 21)
    All A's on midterm report
    Involved in business Clubs
    lots of relevant work experience.
    Waitlisted last time with a 3.3 first semester

    I'm a sophomore so I decided to try and apply for spring so I'm honestly just anticipating it to roll over to fall. But hey, I'd get two application chances for the price of one. 🤷‍♂️

    Hey everyone! I’m wondering what anyone thinks of my chances for fall transfer. I am currently in the NVCC system so I am in state and will be finishing an associate degree this Spring. I will be applying as a 3rd year to the School of Engineering as a computer science major.

    College Stats:
    -3.68 GPA on transcript at the time of applying. Anticipating 3.7 at end of spring.
    -I have 1 C on my transcript in calculus 1. Everything else is primarily As and a few Bs.
    -60 credits by end of Spring.
    -All pre-requisites completed except calc-based physics 2 which Id finish end of this spring before transfer.
    -On average I do 12 credits a semester.
    -A good letter of recommendation from a STEM related course.
    -Well written essays.

    High school Stats:
    -Terrible 1.8 GPA (I was not mature enough to understand the world at that time).

    -Volunteer for an organization associated with my school where I motivate kids for STEM.

    UVA overenrolled this year by a small amount - 3925 students enrolled, 175 students over the target of 3750 students. Will this change how many transfers get accepted? And if so, how do you think they'll address CC transfers and 4 year transfers?

    Also just realised that UVA is now offering ED again. Will transfers be squeezed out by a larger number of freshmen? Acceptance rates for transfers don't change too much from year to year and UVA's acceptance rate for 1st years has generally gone down, so...

    It seems like UVA hasn't had to do anything drastic with the larger # of students (unlike VT and their hotels) so I'm probably stressing out about this way too much
