TRANSFER ACCEPTANCE RATES FOR T40 COLLEGES

These are the most current transfer rates I pulled off of CDS' for T40 schools.

I'm providing these to give seniors some context to not getting into their dream colleges and settling in at a target or safety for a year. In some cases, transferring is not a good prospect. But for many schools waiting a year and transferring is sometimes 2 to 3 times easier than applying as a first-time incoming freshman.
