  • 1Transferring schools help?

    I'm transferring schools and need to write an essay that talks about why I would attend that school. If you could give me some advice that would be very grateful, thanks sosososo much! :) Western Canada High School Essay Transfer Western Canada High School is a high school that is known to thrive for the excellence of its students and propel them toward their goals and aspirations. By attending a school like Western Canada, I'm sure I'll be able to succeed because of the courses, clubs and equipment offered at this campus, and the fact that teachers are actually recognized by care students and hope that each and every one of them will accomplish something. I'm sure I'll have a sense of pride coming to this school every day and I'll be proud to represent a school of virtuosos as Western Canada. During the first year, I have been able to maintain Honors and has not received a score below 80. I have excelled through my courses, receiving an average of 86 in the first half of grade 9. Being able to understand the concepts learned in class helped me a lot, but I feel that attending a school like Western Canada, help me improve myself further. The school I am currently attending does not give me the opportunity to be part of the Honor Society, which we hope to be part of in western Canada. I also appreciate the fact that the Experience program is offered at this school. I'm working full time starting this summer and the program will help me learn not only about the day to day responsibilities of a job, but I also help you get credits. Another thing about western Canada I treasure is that the school has courses and clubs that my school does not offer. I feel I can not contribute my talent because I have no deep interest in the clubs and teams in FFCA, the school they currently attend. Although FFCA is an excellent place to go, I do not have the courses you would like to follow in the future. Western Canada provides Journalism, Psychology, Banda, and Spanish as courses, and these are examples of electives would enjoy taking. While attending Western Canada, I also deal with a couple of the many teams and clubs offered at the school, such as the Yearbook Committee, Peer Tutoring, and Youth in Action. Being part of the field hockey team or cross country is something I like to participate in as well. Ultimately, it comes to Western Canada would give me the opportunity to advance in the future, which is one of the main reasons I would like to transfer to this school. Finally, I believe that Western Canada is a school that I will enjoy and I can in. Although I am doing well academically in FFCA, I am unhappy to attend school because they feel disconnected from the student body. I had a friend who went to western Canada and said she loved the fact that everyone gets along and the teachers and staff really wants you to succeed and help every step of the way. She said she really loved her years in Western Canada and would recommend anyone to go there. By coming to western Canada, I know I can excel academically and have fun while doing it. Western Canada High School is well rounded school with academic excellence, sports and fine arts. Coming to a school like this would give me a huge amount of opportunities, and I will try my best to succeed and continue to use what I learned at this school long after my high school years. If I have the opportunity to come here, I will contribute what I can and make the best of the three years he will be attending Western Canada High School. Thanks for your consideration!

  • 4Transferring disciplines - PhD (US schools)?

    So I have a bit of a dilemma ... I just finished my first year as a doctoral student in psychology. As a student I was actually a double major in psychology and international relations, which I really loved. Reallllllllly I wanted to go to graduate school because I love being in school and at the time of applying my thought would be happier with psychology as well as having a better chance to get because research in the Past / volunteer experiences. However, since I've been in this program I have lost the passion I used to have. It is not difficult to work or class or something, I honestly think I just made the wrong decision and should have applied IR (international relations) programs all the time! I know it sounds terrible, because if you are going to apply for a PhD should be darn sure that's what you want with your future ... But I loved them both equally and I had to choose. Unfortunately, I seem to have chosen wrong, but hindsight is 20/20 of course. Well, I'm sure you still want to go for a PhD because learning opportunities are much more appealing to me, as well as research that may be conducted under this program. I'm terrified but if I try to transfer will be horrible, because I made in my original program. I read some forums about people who change schools within the discipline and apparently is deeply despised by schools seeking to implement. In my case, however, my current institution does not really have a PhD program in IR, or political science, or anything like that, but only have a master. I understand that it makes my transfer more justifiable. Even so, how I can show and explain to my potential schools I know for sure without a doubt that change is the right decision and I'm just insecure? Also, what are my chances of being accepted'm considering reapplying after only my first year of study? I know it was stupid of me, but I honestly believe that if I stay in this program will have a very unhappy four years and will lose out to do something I want to do so badly. It was a mistake, but I do not want to think that the situation is irreversible and the damage is done permanently. Does anyone have any advice / suggestions / personal experience with a similar situation?

  • 5Classes to take before transferring help!!?

    Hi all . ok so my plan is to transfer to a 4 year university to go for nutrition

  • 6Transferring after only one semester?

    Is it hard to get into other schools if you've only been going to college for one semester ? It's a long story , but basically I did not apply to any school that I could afford last year, and now I'm stuck going to a local community college and I hate it . Hate my area and the city , and I have to get out of here . Call me dramatic if you will, but I'm literally going crazy . I have no idea how I got here . Anyway , I can have a chance to even get into a school if I apply for the spring 2011 semester ? I know that schools would have to show my high school transcripts / SAT ' s , but I think they are quite acceptable for schools that I am applying to . I really want to do this to get the heck out of here , but I've heard that schools are much more selective when selecting applicants for transfer. What do you think ? Should I apply ? And probably help you answer my question if you know what I plan on asking schools . If you happen to know anything about these schools and their selectivity , please include that in your response . My plan is applicable to these schools and psychology : SUNY - Purchase - SUNY Fredonia - SUNY Oneonta - SUNY Stony Brook . And maybe Suny Albany , SUNY Plattsburgh and or Syracuse .

  • 7College/Transferring help. PLEASE?

    I attend Queens College and am a freshman . I have not yet significant . My GPA is a 3.868 . I live in Queens , so my college is not far from me. I kind of want to experience "dorm " college life . My areas of interest are the social sciences (history , sociology , psychology , etc. ) and I was thinking of going to law school later ( maybe) . I was also considering the type of business as well .. Obviously I'm very confused about my career and career goals right now. But I think I know for sure I will not do anything medical .. I do not like science (biology , chemistry, physics , etc . ) I was thinking of staying not too far from home , so I thought of Rutgers and Stony Brook so far .. but I think Stony Brook is a science , so I'm kind of a cross that off my list. Schools in other states that could enjoy dorming which is also close to home ... it might be something important and good for anything important to choose ? Can anyone give me like .. a list or something ? And also like to know if and how I can get scholarships for schools. Thank you very much .

  • 9Transferring Colleges: Need Some Help?

    Recently retired from a small 4 year college in PA . I was in the honors program , and my GPA was 3.85 at the end of the second year . I decided to transfer at the beginning of my second year , but I had some financial problems and have to start school again this upcoming fall semester .

The schools I'm considering are : University of Massachusetts Amherst , TCNJ , University of DE, UVA , and UPENN .

  • 10What are the downsides to going to CC and then transferring?

    Long story short , I'm in grade 10 and I go to a very academic HS . It's the kind you have to work your butt off just to earn a C in the class. But you're actually learning something , instead of other schools where you sit there and get an easy A. All students / staff that is really our HS CC hardest and most CSU ! In the near future , I'll probably be accepted to college, but only a few Cal States I graduated from a UC ( or at least a very high rating CSU ) . So, I'm thinking of going to CC for 2 years, then transfer . What are the disadvantages of this? The only thing I can think of is not being able to party and live in a dorm. Some additional data : - When I graduate , I will be exactly 17 1/2 . - I live in California - ( ? ) Do not know what I want to major , but probably along the lines of psychology - After obtaining a degree I have really wanted to read a master . ruin this is CC ? Thank you !

  • 11Private School Transferring to a UC?

    Hi! I just had a question about transferring to a UC Irvine luck. I have a situation and do not know how what to do in particular, so I was wondering if maybe I can get some help and information that can help me. Last year, 2009-2010, I attended my first school in his first year at a private school called Dominican University in Northern California, and I was able to receive a total of 32 units with an average of 3.7. However, this year, my second year of college, could not attend Dominican and register for college. Therefore, I am currently attending a community college called Skyline College, and I'm thinking of taking classes there since the 2010-2011 school year. My private school counselor told me to take classes at the community college, and then transfer the units I received back to the private university. So now, I'm still a student at the private school, but I'm taking classes at a community college to transfer. But instead of moving back to my old private school, I was just thinking of moving to the University of California, UC Irvine is expected, however, as a psychology. The problem is, as I spent my first year at a private university, I do not know which class I took my freshman year at the private school is UC transferable. Therefore, I do not know if I will be able to complete the 60 units in two semesters so that I am able to transfer to UC next year, my first year. I do not know how many exact units of the 60 units required to be completed, I have completed and have yet to complete. Besides, I do not know what classes I have already taken and that classes should still be taking. Because even if you've had in the private school, do not know if UC is transferable, so do not know if they still must take the same classes at the community college or not. So is there any way to know if my private school classes are transferable to a UC? Also, I'm confused because a college adviser community I'm attending now showed me a document on the UC transfers is said sometimes a student just might have to take a minimum of one year of college in a community college and a minimum of 30 units. Does this apply to me? So I will be considered a transfer of private school? If so, I have yet to complete the 60-unit minimum requirement? Or I will be considered a transfer from a community college, even if I'll only go to community college for a year? If I am not able to transfer as a junior in C.U. Irvine, I can move there next year as a sophomore instead of a child? Still need to complete the 60 units required for transfer? What do I have to do? Who should I speak or am able to talk to a specific person with respect to this problem? Is there any chance you would be able to get into a UC for my first year? Thank you very much for your time. I really appreciate it. Thanks in advance to those who help.
