Admissions Advice

I'm using the Transfer Common App , are there different essay guides from colleges for that on here?

For example, I'm applying for Reed (as a transfer thru the common app) and the question for the essay guide on here is different than what's asked on the common app - a 250 word minimum personal statement that addresses reasons for transferring and objectives I hope to achieve. Are there any resources for transfer students I could find on here, specific to what specific colleges on the transfer common app are looking for in essays and such?

Hey there @erikazierke!

Thanks for the great question. Currently, the essay prompts on our site are for first-time applicants. However, I've passed on your feedback on including transfer guides to our team as we are continuously working to improve our platform.

In the meantime, here are some resources we thought might be helpful to you:
