I just finished my first semester as a PR major at Suffolk University and am considering transferring to either Northeastern or Emerson for Fall 2022.
In high school, I got a 4.45/5 GPA and was sixth in my graduating class. At Suffolk, I have a 4.0/4.0. I applied to both schools last year and got rejected from northeastern and accepted into Emerson- though I couldn’t afford to go. At Suffolk, I have a near full-tuition scholarship, and they accepted all 51 of my AP credits for my gen-ed courses. It was too good of an offer at the time to pass up on, but now that I’m here I’m not happy.
For extracurriculars in high school, I only did sports and work. At Suffolk, I’m currently starting a club, have my work-study, worked at a non-profit over the summer, and I plan on joining another club this semester.
My fear is that if I get into these schools, I won’t get enough aid to be able to transfer. I was wondering what the chances are that these schools would match/come close to the financial aid packages that I have at Suffolk? My other fear is that since Suffolk accepted all of my AP credits, I can graduate in just 5 semesters here. The other schools won’t likely do that and if I don’t get much money from them, then it’s even less affordable.
I feel so conflicted since I know I have such a wonderful financial opportunity at Suffolk, but I’m just so unhappy there. The only way I can attend another school is if I get the same level of aid, and I don’t know if that’s possible.
Thank you so much
