Harvard and which other schools rarely if ever accept transfer students

  1. Nov 23, 2009 #1
    Which other schools do not accept transfer students other than Harvard, or is it only Harvard that doesn't do this? If Harvard accepted transfer students would it over populate their school?

    Harvard only recently started not accepting transfers, but they aren't the only ones - Princeton hasn't taken transfer students for a long time. They can take the best of the best - the students they accept are unlikely to fail or drop out, even if they're not doing great. They'd have very few spots to fill if they did take transfers. They limit class sizes, and they can only offer so many dorm rooms.
