Hindering my chances of admission
Long story short, my mother died in february 2017. I am currently enrolled to attenddd Stony Brook University in the fall, but am slowly starting to get mixed feelings as my mom was all I had in New York in terms of family. My closest immediate family is in Austin, Texas. I would love to move with them, but this means I was have to attend Austin Community College (ACC) for a year until I become a resident because out of state costs are ridiculous.
However, I aspire to transfer into a more prestigious school one day, which was why I had wanted to attend Stony Brook University (SUNY), as it would give me a better starting platform. Would transferring to a prestigious school be a realistic goal if I were to attend Austin Community College or would it hinder my chances at future transfer? Thanks!
Any help would be appreciated.
