Hello all. I am currently a freshperson at a top 50 university looking to transfer to Wellesley College. I applied at a high school senior but I was wait-listed. I am looking for anyone who has had the experience of successfully transferring to Wellesley, with GPA and test scores. Here are my stats:
HS GPA: 87.9 (The reason I was wait-listed :( )
College GPA: Unknown because Mid-Terms haven't been graded yet but around the range of 3.5 to 3.8
SAT Score: 2280 (C 770 M 730 W 780)
SAT Subject: 740 Lit 750 US History 750 Math IIC

Thanks to everyone who replies.

    You definitely have a good shot, but just so you're aware, Wellesley told me their transfer acceptance rate varies based on the # of spots they have (who's transferring out of Wellesley, who's studying abroad, etc.). This past year, they underestimated their yield and are being careful not to do it again. The # I got from admissions was that they will likely have space for about 10 women. Good luck to us both!
