Transfer Schools

So I'm looking to transfer for next year, I've already applied to two schools, but I'm looking for one or two more to apply to as well. I'm at a small school right now and I really don't like it. So I'm looking for a big school (at least 10,000) that has a football team. I live in Michigan so I'm looking for some schools around here, but I wouldn't be opposed to anything outside the Midwest, especially if it was a warmer climate. I don't have a major picked out yet so that's not too much of an issue, and that's really about it as far as preferences go. My grades from the first semester were:

Spanish 201: B+
English 103: A
CDM 115: B+
Math 103: B+
GNRL 691: A-

GPA: 3.532

Thanks in advance.

    Ohio U
    Ohio State
    Penn State
    Miami FL
    Miami University (OH)
    NC State
    Virginia Tech
    Georgia Tech
    South Carolina

    That should give you tons of options.

    Since you go to school in Wisconsin that might help you get into UW-Madison, especially if you have a good high school record.

    And with a few more credits you can get a guaranteed transfer to University of Iowa, and maybe even get into their honors program.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. dionte, I don't think UMich is really in my range (not that I would go there anyway since I'm an MSU fan). I've applied to Michigan State already and I've been nervous as heck about hearing back and I'm pretty sure I'm right on the border of acceptance and rejection, I think Michigan would require a bit higher GPA. Thanks for the suggestions nonetheless. Also, anyone know if Wake Forest is within my range? It's a little bit smaller I know, but I've always been pretty interested in it.
