I did not get into the schools that I originally wanted to for my freshman year of college. I am already unsatisfied with the school that I ended up enrolling in (SUNY Stony Brook), so I am planning to transfer. My application for the University of Maryland is almost complete and although I was planning on applying as a sophomore transfer, I could apply to Maryland as a spring transfer in my freshman year. While I do like Maryland, I am not sure it is the school I want to end up graduating from. My number one choice to transfer to, as a sophomore, is Brown. My question is: should I attempt to transfer to Maryland in the spring and then again transfer in the fall of my sophomore year or should I stay at Stony Brook for my whole first year so as not to hurt my chances of getting in somewhere else next year?
