Poor method to applying, unhappy college choice
During the application process I feel that I worried far too much about applying to affordable schools. Some schools that I felt were matches I left off my list, while others I ended up applying to anyways but last minute. The school I will be attending was one I put down at random because a friend goes there. It was my fourth choice, and I will be attending because they gave me the most money, but I feel that the distance and location is unnecessary, however pleasant the south may be. I have always wanted to go to a school in Boston, namely Northeastern for its co-op program, and was accepted for the spring semester as I applied literally days before the deadline. I feel that I was a decent candidate for this school, but went about applying to it all wrong and should have used early action. Would attending the school that I chose for a year and then attempting to transfer be my best bet? Of course the total cost has a large impact on many applicants' decisions, I just feel that no matter how much I'll end up liking my school, it's not where I want to be and doesn't offer me the same opportunities as Northeastern.
