When do applications go out?
When do decisions usually come back?
When is the time to start asking for recommendations?
Any thing else I haven't mentioned that I should know?
Thank you in advance for any help with this.
Applications go out depending on the school. GULC and schools like WUSTL have early admission for transfers, so those can get in early. The majority of schools start accepting transfers as early as April, with deadlines ranging from July 1st to July15th.
Decision come back as early as the end of July to the end of August.
The time to ask for recommendations will depend heavily on whether you decide to apply to ED programs at WUSTL or to regular programs. However, give your recommendators at least a month to get the letter out.
Look at certain schools' rate of acceptance. While you have schools like Yale that accept 5 people, there are schools like NYU that accept about 50. This can certainly affect your chances of getting in.
Hope this information helps!
