Hey guys, there wasn't a transfer thread for this Fall so I thought I would make one. Who else is applying? The wait is getting very nerve-racking!

    Yay! I was starting to feel a bit alone! Do you think there's any chance decisions will be out before the 15th?

    I'm actually an international student from Australia so the whole process has been quite overwhelming. I can't wait for it to be over, no matter which way it goes.

    It sounds like Williams has always been one of your favourite schools if you applied as a first year as well?

    I assume they inform us by email. All the other schools I've applied to have contacted me via email. Also I heard rumors we may hear as early as today from Williams. Longest day ever!

    Hmm I have not received anything yet. I hope this isn't a bad sign! I am an international so maybe that has some bearing on it. Yes, best of luck to everyone as well and I hope you received good news @Atari875

    @Daisychain123 @gyuanyu That's really weird...I'm an athletic recruit and I had several offers I need to respond to by this Friday. They may have just sped up the process for me. Still...bizarre

    I emailed admissions. This is what they said:
    "Thank you for your e-mail. The Admission staff has not released a date yet as to when transfer decisions will be released. All decisions should be made and sent out by the end of this month.."

    @Daisychain123 Men's rowing. If you contact your coach and let him/her know you have other offers pending, but that you really want to go to williams, he/she may be able to get you a decision.

    Oh that's funny...I'm a rower too. Well I was, but got injured at the end of last year so I'm being recruited for XC. I had a Div 1 scholarship so it was sad looking that but Williams and other Div III schools are fantastic so hopefully everything works out. Thanks for your suggestion @Atari875
