Between a rock and a hard place...

<p>I'm a first year student at RIT and I came in for engineering, decided I hated it, and now I am studying business. I realize that I really like business and probably want to study economics or business economics. </p>

<p>I applied to 4 schools and get into two of them so far (Hofstra and Adelphi). Both are considered a step down from RIT and it bothers me because I have gotten 4.0's for the fall and winter quarters. </p>

<p>I am waiting to hear from Stevens Institute of Technology. I applied to the Howe School of Management which is a business and technology program. </p>

<p>I am not sure if I am completely interested in Stevens' program so depending on what happens, I would probably go to Hofstra if I decide to not go anywhere else. </p>

<p>In a time where the school you go to is so important, I am worried. </p>

<p>I don't plan on staying where I am transferring to next year but I want to stop jumping around and get settled.</p>

<p>why not stay for sophomore year and try to transfer for junior year?</p>

<p>you can probably do better than Hofstra for business...</p>

<p>You could stay a year, take some economics courses, then apply to more selective universities.</p>

<p>I could stay at RIT even though I am not completely crazy about it. The only thing that worries me is my test scores. </p>

<p>My test scores are pretty bad and those are what have dragged me down. </p>

<p>I had a pretty decent average in HS and I have a great GPA in college but my test scores are going to hurt.</p>

<p>The good news is that if you apply for junior standing your test scores won't count as much. Or you can also consider re-taking it, in which case you're likely to do much better.</p>

<p>Considering your GPA, I agree that you can do better than Hofstra.</p>

<p>Best of luck :)</p>
