    Hello everyone, I am posting in hope of finding out a little bit about my chances. I am currently a freshman at a local college and just finished my first semester. I finished with a 3.4 GPA. I applied to VMI as a Senior in High school and was wait listed, I had a very close relationship with my admission officer and the only reason why I was not accepted was due to a low high school GPA.

    I applied to VMI for Early Decision because my number 1 goal is to attend VMI.

    I am just wondering what my chances are of being accepted. I have heard from multiple people that applicants who were not accepted but then apply for transfer the following year are usually accepted.

    I would love any advice or information.
    Thank You,
    Connor

    If you keep up a 3.4 or better you could probably get into Tech. You should have no problem getting accepted to VMI.

    Ok .I emailed Lt. Col. Whitmore, but he has not yet responded. I am not too worried though because I am sure that he has tons of emails from the break.

    How long does it usually take to hear back if I applied for early decision befor November 15th, and I sent my transcript just before Christmas?

    jcm- if you applied ED - you should have already heard. I think that your best bet is contacting LTC Whitmore to make sure that he has all of your application and transfer paperwork.

    I emailed him, but have yet received a response. I sent the email in the middle of last week.

    I just called the admissions office and my application status is listed as Complete, meaning that it is waiting to be revised. How long should until I should expect a answer?

    If anyone has been following this and is in the same boat as I am. I have contacted Lt. Col. Whitmore, and he informed me that early action transfer applicants will be notified in early February.
