Hello! I am a HS senior committed to a small LAC with a strong academic atmosphere and a bunch of partner schools where I can take classes from.
I applied to the school because I wanted to go really academic and study philosophy (like classic european centered.) My interests did not change much, but I gradually realized that I wanted to learn more about the rest of the world, from their history and philosophy to current issues and policies. My college has great poli and phi departments and the partner colleges are very strong in the field also. However, my college is very Anglo-American focused. The other colleges are not, but it is not practical for me to take half of my classes outside of my college considering the commute time. I don’t want that either.
How should I prepare for transferring after my first year? Does my reason for transfer above sound valid? I just don’t know if my reason is strong enough as I can always go to the other school, but I really didn’t feel happy when I go through our 2021 phi courses liking very few of them.
