I'm going to be a sophmore at UCSD and am looking to transfer to the following schools:
UCLA, Berkeley, Stanford, Northwestern, UChicago, NYU, maybe Columbia or Yale?
Anyway, it's not that I'm hating UCSD or anything, I just feel a bit trapped here with the straighter-than-average and often socially inept student body. I am certainly not looking to be president of the LGBTQIA nor am I looking to have a big fat gay pride parade everyday on campus, but I AM looking for a school that accepts an attractive and relatively large gay population. I'm not the "typical" gay guy, so I don't want/need the trendy shopaholic ***** crew, just some normal people I can relate to. I can see how this post could be taken as completely shallow and/or stupid...however true that may be, I am still looking to transfer for this reason among others. This isn't my only reason for wanting to transfer, though, I promise!
Anyway, so far at UCSD I've gotten a 4.0 and I'm pretty sure I'll be majoring in Sociology, Economics, Communications, or some kind of combination of the three. I am also wondering which schools (on the list above and off) would be best for these majors.
Any advice from students at these colleges (gay or straight, I don't discriminate) would be appreciated. Also, if any of you have any advice on the whole transferring process, I am pretty clueless!
Thanks a lot,
