Difficulty in Transferring into 2L

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like know how difficult is it to transfer to TRU for 2L? I have some personal reasons that force me to relocate to that area.

 

 

 

Best,

Hi,

Best, 

 

I don't know if I am the best to answer this but I'll give it a shot.

 

It is my understanding that transferring in is not inherently difficult. It just depends on things like how many students have indicated that they are transferring out or not returning for 2L, your reasons for wanting to transfer, your 1L grades, etc. You can also only transfer between 1L and 2L. For this year, I believe 7 students didn't return and 2 transferred in. Sometimes the best thing to do is call or email the ad comm and see what they say though.

 

Hope this helps even if just a bit :)

TRU literally has people with average grades transferring from tier 4 schools in the States.

 

 

From what I understand, and please correct me if I am wrong, there were two transfers into TRU this year (one from Western and one from U of M). I know previously there were more transfers from schools outside of Canada but I believe TRU is moving away from that going forward and focusing on accepting transfers from other Canadian schools.

 

Just wanted to provide some clarity on this and on what the current situation is.

You may (and likely are) certainly be right. I was speaking on the (short) history of TRU transfers. It would be great to see them move away from accepting foreign transfers.

I have to say that there's really no way to know how "easy" it is to transfer into TRU based simply on where a transfer comes from or what their supposed 1L grades were. There are more considerations than that and given the holistic nature of TRU admissions, the reason for transfer and the reference letters probably play a not insignificant part in it.

There may be 'a' person but certainly not a meaningful number of people. Most transfers, and there aren't many, are from other Canadian schools.

    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear.

    • I never understood worrying about what's on my fellow classmate's plate. I take my exam. I do the best that I can. If I get a B, I get a B. If i get an A, then yay. I know I didn't lose a shade of a grade because a few people got extra time through accommodation. I lost a shade of a grade because I screwed up. There's no guarantee I don't screw up even if the prof gave me time immemorial.  Legit or illegitimate accommodation doesn't bother me. I'd rather the person who actually needs accommodation get it even if five others are "cheating" the system. It doesn't and shouldn't affect me. Just focus on yourself.
