    I'm a college freshman who is planning on transferring from my current institution to VMI or The Citadel for next year.

    I'm just curious if someone could give me an estimate of my chances at these two good schools? My grades and test scores in high school weren't good but I still would like to hear.

    Thank you,

    While your HS grades are not the strongest ones out there but your college GPA looks competitive as a transfer -( I believe that the profile of the Rat mass of 2013 shows the avg transfer GPA was 3.03.) Assuming that you are going to maintain that GPA thru the end of the semester- I would think that your application would at least get a serious look.
    This is one of those times when truthfully - you will only get the straight answer from the Admissions office. As the old saying goes- "nothing ventured - nothing gained".

    I've attached a link to the profile of the class of 2013 just FYI:

    Good luck
