Also, a lot of people at my school are applying EA to Gtown. Do you think this will make it harder for me to get in? Thanks for your time!
People have been discussing the effect of the economy on transfers in other threads but I would think that it wouldn't have too great an effect this year. If someone was really concerned wouldn't they stay where they are and take a hefty scholarship?
This is somewhat anecdotal but I would think you shouldn't have any problem getting in. Unless what you mean by "a lot of people" is every single person in the class ahead of you, but even then I think you're good. I am trying to transfer from a T-20 and I only know of 1 other person applying. Though I'm sure the numbers of transfer applicants increase as school rank decreases, I doubt there will be an explosion of kids from schools 15-30 applying.
