Okay, so I'm going to Emory University in the fall...when I visited Emory I fell in love. I live in Houston so I've visited Rice many times. I also love Rice, but I didn't even apply because I didn't want to be that close to home.
To me Emory is a great school. I think an Emory degree will get me just as far as a Rice degree at the end of the day, but I kind of want to go to Rice....
I have several friends who are going to Rice in the fall and they are literally begging me to transfer my sophomore year. Should I? If I decide to transfer it'd have to be now, because I know if I enter college in the fall without the mind set of getting out in a year--I won't.
I'm a chemistry major. What is your opinion? Should I stay at Emory or transfer to Rice? I read that Rice has a 90% matriculation rate to medical school while Emory only has a 70% (or something similar). :/
