Transferring to VT advice

hellothere1123hellothere1123 5 replies12 threads New Member
Hey so I currently go to George Mason University and I am planning to transfer to VT next fall (after one year). I have many questions on what i should do and expect, so here i go:
1. Transferring in one year, will it be difficult?
2. Will i be competing for spots against people who are transferring in 2 years?
3. Does VT weigh the acceptance on the difficulty level of the classes you took compared to others?
4. What GPA do you think i would need on average for a good chance to get in? Good chance = 80%+

Thanks guys!

    I submitted my transfer application to engineering after one semester at my former 4-year college. I had a 3.6 GPA and the courses I was taking were pretty much exactly what first years at VT were taking. In addition to having at least a GPA of 3.0 or greater, i think the key to acceptance is to be in a curriculum that is pretty much the equivalent at VT so that you will be at the same credit standing as your VT classmates.
