‘Tis now the season for transfers. If you are intending to transfer colleges, know that the transfer admission deadline for most highly selective colleges is on or about March 1, 2016. Maybe you’re unhappy at the college to which you chose to attend (we hope not!). Or maybe you made mistakes in the college admissions process as a high school senior and you’ve always felt you could get into a better school. Maybe that’s the case.

If you’re interested in our assistance with the transfer admissions process, what we recommend to start off is a one-hour evaluation in which we’d review your prior case for admission (from high school) as well as review what you’ve done since (including your college coursework and grades as well as all that you’ve done outside of the classroom since matriculating to college). From this evaluation, you’ll come away with a clear understanding of what you did wrong when you applied to these colleges as a high schooler and you’ll come away with ideas for how to optimize your chances for admission this time around, when competition is even fiercer (there just aren’t that many slots for transfer applicants!). We don’t point out these mistakes to you so that you can kick yourself. It’s so that you can avoid those same kinds of mistakes this time around. As we always tell students and parents, better to hear from us than to hear from colleges when they don’t offer you admission.

So if you’re interested in Ivy Coach’s assistance with transfer admission, fill out our free consult form and we’ll be in touch with an email within the day. The free consult is not to offer advice about your particular case for transfer admission. It is only to discuss our service offerings. If, after this, you’d like our advice on your particular case, that’s the paid one-hour evaluation. We are a business. And we make no apologies for being one. Not ever.
