If you’re considering a transfer, then check out the first-hand accounts of students who have been in your shoes. Their stories offer advice and perspective on the transfer process.
Personally the transfer process was painless and Nancy [Admissions Counselor Nancy Brown Wentzell] helped me every step of the way. I feel like I called every day making sure I was filling out the right paperwork and making sure they had received my files. She was always so friendly and polite and seemed really enthusiastic too! I was thrilled when I got my call of acceptance, and who from? Nancy, I think she was just as excited as I was.
I am so happy I did transfer! I was at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth last year, and even though there are things with both schools that I love, I always knew Lesley was the perfect fit for me. I was so excited to have a placement in a 5th grade classroom my first semester here, and I understand now Lesley is all about being a hands on school and making sure its students get the experience they need. At the end of this semester I will have taken two of the necessary MTELS need to become a certified teacher in Massachusetts, as well as applying to the Dual Degree program so I can get my master in Special Education as well.
It was so easy to become infused in the Lesley Community, I actually became an Admissions Ambassador, and I now work alongside admissions staff and even my admissions counselor Nancy. There is so much to do at Lesley and even the location was very appealing to me. It was the best decision I have ever made, and I am so happy I transferred.
Overall, I had a wonderful experience transferring to Lesley University. It was a very last minute decision for me. I made my first call requesting information about the transfer process at the end of Fall semester 2013, and by Spring semester of 2014 I was enrolled in Lesley classes and ready to go.
I initially wanted to transfer to Lesley for financial reasons. Boston University is a fabulous school, but very expensive. Lesley University is more affordable and offers an education program that has proved to be just as enriching and enjoyable as it was advertised to be. My necessary relocation is what I would call a blessing in disguise.
As far as my transition into life at this new University, I only have positive things to say. While any change takes some getting used to, the people here have been especially friendly and welcoming. The school is small enough that even though I am a transfer student and have only been here for a little over a month, I see familiar faces on the street. My professors are engaging and make my success a priority, and my classes are small and intimate. Coming from Boston University, I am used to lectures with 200 students. My Literacy Learning class is comprised of six students… SIX!
I look forward to my future here, and I am proud to be a member of the Lesley University community.
