Transfer because of low gpa?
I am currently attending Baylor University and am earning a BS in Neuroscience. The problem is I recently switched to this major and they are telling me I don't have enough time to be involved in research which I really need/want before graduate school.
If I stay at Baylor, I will probably only have a 3.4 when I graduate due to depression & anxiety my first two years attending which have really brought down my overall GPA. It seems impossible for me to even consider going to Columbia having a low GPA and no research experience.
The question I have is if I transfer to another school with a similar program, would this be beneficial for me if I end up having an overall higher GPA? Since the previous grades wouldn't count, and my GPA for the other school would be much higher. And this would also open up the possibility of being allowed to do research as an undergraduate.
I am very hardworking and determined, and going to Columbia is my dream. I had a rough start to college and I'm looking for a way to fix this. I am willing to do whatever I can from this point on.
