I am highly considering leaving my private school because I feel that public school students have a higher chance because they have more opportunities, and more kids, so it's easier to be top 10% whereas in private school there's only 50 kids in my grade meaning top 10% would be top 5... I want to get into a good college. (Stanford, UCLA, USC, Berkley). I'm willing to make changes but is it worth transferring? Do my chances increase exponentially if I were to be in a public school?
P.S. The reasons that are holding me back are friends, and that I've attended private school my whole life so I'm not used to classes with over 500+ kids in the grade. I'm also nervous to make the change, because I've never attended one, and I don't know what to expect.
