Transfer opportunities from Cooley

Transfer opportunities from Cooley
« on: August 23, 2010, 09:45:41 AM »
The common question I get from the students I tutor is what is it going to take to get out of Cooley?
Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with the school so I often tell them to reconsider transferring but the numbers are difficult but possible.

Two of my students transferred this term and one did not get in to the school she wanted so she stayed put.

The students who transferred had an overall gpa of 3.40 which is tough at Cooley.
The one who didn't get in had a 3.33 and won book awards and could've gotten into many schools but only wanted a plush school or should I say a school with a plush reputation.

The bottom line guys is for those of you looking to transfer you need to understand that if you don't make the Dean's List you have no chance and do not assume you'll make the D List because you did well in undergrad.  This is a different ball game.

Anybody want to e-mail me directly feel free too.

Personally, and Bill you know my situation, I'm glad I never transferred.

While many schools would accept me they would not take classes such as R and W.

Transferring is an option but watch your back because it may not be in anyone's best option.
