Unhappy at elite college... Should I transfer to an "inferior" local school?
I am a sophomore at an elite private school in New England. I have gotten mostly A's, with a few B+'s, and have gotten involved in a few organizations, but I am dreading going back this semester more than anything. If I transferred to an "inferior" school closer to home, will that hurt my chances of getting into law school in a few years? Further complicating things, my current institution has no distribution requirements, so I am worried that I will have to retake most of my first two years. Has anybody else been in a similar position or have any advice on what I should do? I can't imagine being here for another 2 1/2 years.16 replies
