Wilkes, John M.


Through a lengthy process of data gathering, feedback sessions, transfers comments and analysis, we were able to determine that in fact the transfer students are different from the regular student body that arrived as Freshmen in terms of personality, learning styles and aspirations. We hope that in the future the transfer students arriving at WPI will be included in data collection describing the student body and not assumed to be the same as the rest of the student body. The policies relating to the support of transfers by WPI should be adjusted accordingly.
