For Ashley Livingston‘12CPS, transferring to St. John’s was a
second chance to attend a university that suited her best. “I
applied to St. John’s originally in 2008,” she explained. “I was
accepted, but decided at the last minute to go out of town. I’m so
glad I’m finally at St. John’s.”
Ashley especially values being able to pursue a degree in St.
Criminal Justice program. The courses offer superb preparation
for her career objective of becoming a defense attorney. The
University’s top-ranked School of
Law also adds to St. John’s allure. “St. John’s is also high up
on my wish list for law school,” she said.
Ashley is especially impressed by the support transfer students
receive at St. John’s. “Everyone involved in helping me transfer —
from administrators to financial and academic advisers — has been
wonderful,” she said. “They’re concerned, caring and nurturing.” Of
course, she added, being awarded one of the University’s generous
Transfer Scholarships made her decision even sweeter.
