Will undergrad transfer hurt choices of grad school?
I'm currently a returning undergrad studying Physics at Penn State but I'm thinking about transferring to a smaller state school (Kutztown or East Stroudsburg). My reason for transferring is to save money. Another side benefit of switching schools is I will start with a fresh gpa. My current gpa is a low 2.04 after 54 credits from 10 years ago when I first started at Penn State only to drop out because I didn't want to be there after switching majors multiple times.
So my question is will graduating from a smaller/less known school with a higher gpa give me similar chances at getting into grad school as graduating from Penn State with a lower gpa?
