Visiting Student v. Transfer Student?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 16, 2016 11:40 pm

Currently at a T25. Median GPA.

Not happy with the region my school is in... And definitely feel like I'm going to strike out at my school's OCI.

Thoughts/Chances about transferring???

Opinions re visiting at a lower-ranked school in my desired region for OCI???

Thanks guys.

Don't know about transfer v. visiting, but if you do decide to do either, you need to submit immediately. Many applications were due June 15. Some are due in July, but you need to get Letters of Rec/transcripts processed ASAP.

So I already have an application in for a slight lateral-upward transfer. Haven't heard back yet.

The lower ranked school only requires a two-paged form, official transcript, a letter of good standing to apply as a visiting student.

I've just never heard of anyone visiting for OCI... So I was hoping someone had some insight. THANKS THOUGH :mrgreen:

All of what the above poster said. I've never heard of someone visiting 2L year and going through OCI. At most, you'll likely get a meeting with career services and reciprocity with their Symplicity at the end of OCI. Also, you'd be paying sticker to visit (I know most transfers do too so that may be moot), but then your school will also charge you a fee to transfer the credits back. Your grades won't count in GPA/ranking at your original school, so you're likely to get surpassed as many people's GPAs increase in their last 2 years.
