I had to take a break and enjoy part of the weekend, but I will answer some of your questions now. Keep in mind, I'm doing this from home, so these will be less numbers-related because well, it's Sunday and I am not at work where I can be connected to the system.
For those of you who were waitlisted, please send in your card to stay on the waitlist. You must also send your final grades if you are in school this semester. We will begin to go to the wait list on June 1 and sometimes these decisions trickle out until mid-July. If there is one bit of good news I can give you, it's that statistically we tend to go to the transfer wait list more than with the first years. That's why finishing the semester strong is so very important.
For those of you who were offered, there is nothing you can do until you receive your packet. If you choose to join us, you will have to return the deposit and forms. You cannot pay the deposit online. You must wait for offer packet and then pay by check or money order. Currently, the deposit deadline is a postmark date of May 12. Once we recieve your deposit, other departments (housing, orientation) will mobilize and start sending you information. It's likely that you will not get credit evaluations until June. Afterall, we need your final transcript to complete this process. I would encourage you to check out this website to see if you have questions about what will transfer. http://web.virginia.edu/ArtsSci/credit/credit_analyzer.asp
You will not register for classes until transfer orientation. For more information on this, go here: www.virginia.edu/orientation
Gottaloveuva, it’s my understanding that these decisions are not posted online, but I’ll check into it when I’m at work.
The financial aid packet is not being sent any earlier. We work independently.
I’ve said this before, but we do not have admitted days for transfer students. The turnaround time is just too quick.
In most cases, you have to have a strong high school record if you are looking to transfer after the first year. One semester of good college grades sometimes isn’t enough to secure an offer of admission. A 4.0 is very difficult to achieve in college, but we are most definitely looking at the coursework. If your courses are say, 1) not spread out over many disciplines or 2) if they are most like Ceramics over Statistics or Macroeconomics, etc, then we would have trouble admitting someone like this.
That's all the information I have at the moment. I'll be back on tomorrow with any updates I can get.
