Hello, I was wondering what the admissions committee is looking for in tranfer students? Why would they accept a person that they rejected a year ago? I know that the tranfer acceptance rate is very low so I was just wondering. do the transfer get interviews?

By the way, wat does "bump" mean?

There have been lots of previous discussions on Harvard and transfers. Use the message search feature in the dark blue area to the left of your screen. It doesn't work for a global search (searching all boards at once), but you can do a board by board search of individual topics.

The short answer is that Harvard looks for outstanding applicants (and as always, most candidates are outstanding) who fill gaps in the class. This is why getting in as a Harvard transfer is even hardre than is getting in as a freshman.
