To apply as a transfer or as a Freshman?

Long story short, I only attended a college for 3 weeks and then withdrew in favor of a gap year. I want to apply to a better institution, but am not sure if I should apply as a transfer student or new student. Thanks for the help.

    I would ask admissions at the schools that you want to apply to.

    I *think* that you would apply as a freshman. However, admissions will know for sure.

    Depends on the college you apply to. Some may consider any college attendance after high school graduation to make you a transfer. Others may have a minimum number of college credits after high school graduation to make you a transfer.
