Admissions Advice

Will transferring to several schools affect my admissions chances?

My family arrived to the US shortly before starting my freshman year of HS. We moved around a lot because of my parents work and I transferred to a few different schools in the process. The disruption didn't affect my grades too much but there were some inconsistencies so I'm worried that might affect my chances. Does anyone know how multiple transfers are viewed by college admissions?

Transferring schools, especially due to relocation, will not have a negative impact on your college applications. Schools understand this is something that happens to students. I found this article from the CollegeVine blog which I think might be able to help you answer any other questions you might have.
