The Transfer Book Survey Results and Odds and Ends

Hope everyone had a great holiday! We thought people might be curious about some of the results of the survey so here are some of our findings. Thanks again to everyone who participated! It’s really helpful for us to get feedback like this (please keep leaving comments!) so we know if we’re hitting the mark or not. We’re definitely using this information to prioritize what we put out there.

Congratulations! By now, you should have all received emails regarding your prizes. In case anyone is curious, we used random.org to generate the winners.

Also, while we’re dealing with random bits and pieces, we just wanted to point out that there’s a really active discussion (16 comments so far!) going on at this post: Transferring Colleges: Three Ways to Overcome a Weak High School GPA (even though it’s not showing up on our most popular posts sidebars).

Thanks for reading – and for the feedback – now we’ll get back to posting more on the transfer topics you’re interested in.  In fact, Lan’s got a great post spotlighting a really academically strong, transfer-friendly school coming up very soon.

If you’ve got a second, chip in your two cents about what you’re interested in seeing more of on the blog in the comments! Thanks!

    As a sophomore community colllege student I’m most concerned about any ways of making myself as competetive as possible for junior transfer admission to two Ivy league schools.

    Thanks for your comment! In short, get involved at your community college. Lead a club, or start one. Or ask if any professors in the field you’re interested in need some assistance (paid or free); you’ll learn a lot and you’ll likely get a great recommendation out of the work. One community college student we worked with got involved with the student government of his community college. He worked a lot with deans, got great recommendations and transferred to Cornell.
