transfer to UVA from W&M?

Is transferring to UVA from W&M crazy?

W&M is no doubt an excellent school, but it does not have a top business program and engineering program.

If i were to transfer to UVA-Mcintere? or UVA Industrial eng

What are the stats that i need?

I am thinking about transferring my sophmore year starting as a junior in my new school.

IF i try to transfer right after freshman year do i have to take the sat's again? SAT less than 2000

    Tons of people do it, from my hall at W&M approximately 12 transferred to UVA (myself included). People I knew had GPA ranging from 2.9 to 3.4, that's pretty much what you need since you're coming from an already excellent school.

    My HS GPA is about 3.7, I am an international, and AVG SAT-1800-1900.

    DO i still have a chance to transfer to UVA(Mcintere) from W & M?

    If i were to apply as a sophmore would it be unlikely to get in compared to applying as a

    junior to UVA? or is there actually a great chance that if i finish my freshman year and apply

    with around 3.5-3.8 GPA i will get in?

    I was thinking dobule major maybe in Marketing and Industrial eng(W&M does not have eng program)- maybe i am dreaming.

    1. UVA doesn't have industrial engineering
    2. Double majoring in the comm school and e-school is really hard, especially for transfers

    I've never heard of someone double majoring in comm and engineering.. I think that's practically impossible given the structured set of courses each program outlines.

    That's why i said i was probably dreaming of double majoring in Bus and ENG.

    If i apply as a sophomore at Virginia(Mcintere) do i have to retake the SAT's? or do i just have to maintain a good gpa at W & M.
  • barbozabarboza Registered User Posts: 489 Member
    GPA only..
  • InternationaleeInternationalee Registered User Posts: 20 New Member
    So If i apply as a sophomore at Virginia(Mcintere) i just have to maintain a good gpa at W & M. Hmm... What will be the range of GPA that i need? at least 3.5 right?
  • barbozabarboza Registered User Posts: 489 Member
    Well a GPA that's above a 3.5 will help you no doubt.. but also focus on the classes you take such as fulfilling McIntire's prerequisites.. and secure a good internship.
