Although most of the focus will be on Freshman applicants for the next month or so, I did not want to leave out our transfer students. While our evaluation team will be reviewing a large number of freshman files through the month of January, I expect that we will begin the transfer review process in full sometime in early to mid February. As this is the case, I would suggest that any transfer student should do two things; one, send in your application (of course!), but like I have told the freshman applicants, do not wait until the deadline hits. Second, make sure you get in all of your college transcripts by the deadline, and make sure they have the most up-to-date work on them.
If you have already applied as a transfer student, of which there are almost 1,000 who have already done so, make sure to request a transcript with fall 2009 grades on it. We will not be able to review your application unless we have fall transfer work to review! As well, since this is deadline week for freshman, I would suggest you wait until a week later to send in your transcripts. It always helps when your transfer work is not in the 30 or so mail bins of freshman materials!
We will be reviewing summer transfer students first, and then fall, and I expect that you will see transfer decisions start to roll out in mid-February.
I hope this helps you understand the transfer timeline, and Go Dawgs!
