I recently just got rejected by UVA, which was my clear choice #1. My grades and extracurricular were not bad. I have held above a 3.0 throughout high school I am an Eagle Scout and I even attended a selective summer program at UVA. However I was not accepted and need help with deciding my future. The only other schools I applied to are JMU and Richard Bland (a 2 year school run by William and Mary). If accepted by JMU would it be better to just go there and enjoy all of my 4 years of school at one school? The other option is to attend Richard Bland for 1-2 years and then enter UVA as a transfer student. Virginia has a program where if you go to community college and do a complete a certain set of classes then a certain list of state schools (which include UVA and VT) have to accept you. Overall do you guys think I should attend JMU if I am accepted or attend Richard Bland and transfer into UVA? If it helps anyone I am interested in studying accounting. All responses are appreciated.
