I am a PT at a T3/T4 school and I want to transfer to FT in a different school for personal/academic reasons in addition to testing out the transfer market. The schools I want to transfer to have a checklist of what I have to complete (including a statement why I want to transfer) and when to send it by, but it seems as if the same application as 0L's are used for transfers as well.
So my question is do I have to fill out the PS that pre- 1Ls write IN ADDITION to a transfer statement? In other words, do I have to complete the entire application (PS, optional statement) or is a transfer statement enough?
If yes, since I applied to some of these schools pre-1L, should I write a "new" PS/optional statement?
