Would you like to be an Ivy League transfer from community college? More specifically, do you want to be a harvard transfer student?
No doubt, starting your harvard transfer application is an important part of the whole harvard transfer process.
One thing I can guarantee is this: almost all Harvard transfers from community college have an outstanding transfer application.
However, an outstanding Harvard transfer application is not just written on its own and submitted to Harvard’s transfer admissions office.
Harvard transfer applications are outstanding because of what you have done at community college.
This is your opportunity to showcase yourself as a succesful community college transfer student!
So, in this post, I’m going to share with you some of the most important actions to take while at your 2 year community college in order to build an outstanding Harvard transfer application.
Be a Top Student at Community College
Your Harvard transfer application should showcase you as the top student at your community college because the competition for transferring to Harvard University is not only community college students applying to transfer, but it’s also potential transfer students from all other four-year universities including students from other Ivy League universities.
So, you need to keep in mind that with the level of competition, you really need to be one of the top students at your community college.
Retake Your SATs in Community College
If you do not have a 2100 or out of 2400 or above on the SATs, I strongly suggest that you could consider retaking your SATs.
After a long lunch discussion with a former UPENN admissions counselor, I learned that it is extremely important that you retake your SATs at community college because it’ll show admissions counselor you improved your scores from high school into college and that you’re serious enough to go back and show that you’re capable of improving.
Although the standardized test scores are just one piece of the transfer application, and yes many Ivy League and tier 1 schools ask for your SAT scores as a community college transfer student, scoring well on the SATs will definitely help make your Ivy League transfer application stand out.
