Fall or Spring Transfer?
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:42:39 AM »
My target school wants applicants to have 30 credits, but will evaluate student with fewer credits on a case-by-case basis.  However, they will only accept 30 credits.

I have 24 credits. (I'm a part-time student)

If I apply now, I'll be taking my chances and hoping that they'll let me in with less than 30 credits.

If I apply in the fall, I have the 30 credits.  But I'll have to take an additional class.  And I'll have 1/2 of con law and civ pro at one school and 1/2 at another.

Anybody have any experience with this situation?  Any ideas on which route is better?  My target school is rather hesitant to give any info other than to re-state their policy.

Thanks!
