Transfer

Well I never thought I'd be back here again! But I applied ED to the new school this year and was not admitted. With that being said I have been thinking long and hard about transferring to Lang after the first semester at another NYC college. So I was wondering if anyone had any experience with doing this. Is it a smooth transition? Would I be able to live at stuyvesant? Just stuff like that. Thanks in advance!

Comments

I didn't apply from an NYC college, but I did transfer from another school. There seem to be a lot of transfers in overall. I came from a suburban school that I was commuting to, so most of the transition was adapting to a new city and absorbing that I didn't have to drive an hour each way to class. I have no info on living at that dorm.

I didn't apply from high school but I believe I would not have gotten in if I just had my high school transcript. I had a solid semester at another school where I worked very hard and did well, and I think proving that I could do well in college courses (and I did some leadership stuff on campus) is what they focused on. So I would advise you to go to any college, work your butt of for a semester to get good grades, and apply.

I would also advise you to look at your class offerings at this other school by what they have in common with Lang, and to pick the ones that seem most similar to ones on the course catalog at Lang. It would suck to spend a semester at another school and not be able to transfer many of the credits in.
Thanks for all the info! Was it easy making friends? And where did you live while going to Lang?
I'm not an extremely social person, so my definition of friendly might be different from yours. If you're outgoing, it's pretty easy to make friendly acquaintances at least, and there's a mix of types of personalities here, just like at most schools. I made closest friends with my array of roommates than I did with my classmates, because I was generally living with art and drama students and enjoyed being around people with (what seemed to me to be) very unusual talents. You can also expect to find friendly mentoring relationships with your teachers if you're lucky.

I lived in William St. I graduated a couple of years ago, so keep that in mind with my advice, but I'd recommend it overall. The students there tend to be older and I liked living in a quieter part of town (the financial district, a couple blocks east of the WTC site).
oh gosh, want to elaborate?
