I am brewing a wheat beer and had the primary ferment go great for about 8 days. There was no activity in the air lock so I decided to go into the secondary. Upon racking into the secondary my rack just stop working with about 1.5 gallons left to go. With no other option, I had to gently poor the last bit into the secondary.

whats the possibility of oxidation? any solutions (there probably isnt any but i am hopefull!)

There's a possibility it's oxidized, but you wont' know until you taste it. It's actually harder than you think to oxidize a beer, so I'd go through with bottling and give it 3 weeks there and see how it tastes. It's probably going to be just fine. Obviously, that isn't best practice, but people often make mistakes and still make great beer, so don't give up on it yet.
