<p>I spent my freshman year at Rollins college in FL and needless to say didn't quite enjoy myself there. I got into Georgetown and Wash U in STL as a transfer student, and now I really need to make the right decision (no more transferring for me). I'm a biochemistry major, currently on the premed track, native to the state of New Jersey. There are a million pros and cons for both schools, but my time to linger is dwindling down to a few days now. Please help me!
I realize Wash U is much more well known for premed then Georgretown, but many other factors play into the decision. If its helpful at all, a profile of myself would do quite well in supplementing your advice.</p>
<p>I havn't quite established whether research or clinical medicine is my priority. I come from a diverse area of New Jersey, so some cultural variance would be good. I've heard Georgetown can be a hub for pretentious white kids (relax I'm "white" myself), but havn't heard anything about the general population of Wash U. As far as extracarricular interests go, I'm interested in music, AASA, film, prehealth prep, and campus event planners (they carry their share of unique names at each campus). As a science major its also difficult to study abroad, so if anyone knows about either universities study aboad programs for science majors, that'd be great. Also, I'm from the northeast, and exiting from a school in the south (yes believe it or not, Florida bears it share of confederate flags), I'm not particularly interested in "Giten R Done". I have heard the midwest culture is quaint and pleasant in its own respects. I don't quite know how detached an area like St. Louis is from the rest of the country. You know, whether or not Wash U kids are still trading pogs and discussing the Iran-contra ordeal. I've seen gtowns campus but not Wash's so I don't know much about it. </p>
<p>Any advice would be great! Thanks! Time is running out!</p>
