Safety School?

<p>Is there really such thing as a safety school for transfers? Or is the one that you're already at? I'm trying not to go down in terms of academic reputation and rigor when I transfer. That being said, I don't want to be left without options for the Fall.
My high school stats were good enough to get me into some top schools, and I have a 4.0 in college so far. I guess I'm just seeing if anyone has some suggestions for some reputable transfer-friendly schools that could be a safety of sorts (not exactly the right term, I suppose).</p>

<p>USC might be considered a "safety" for a student such as yourself. You might even will a scholarship there too. They accept 1000 transfer students a year, so unless there is some "dark secret" you are hiding, I'd say you would be accepted. Why do you want to transfer?</p>

<p>I assume you mean Southern California? (I'm from the South, so the only USC I ever hear of is S. Carolina :) ) I actually ended up attending one of the not so top schools I got into, due to merit aid. Haha, no dark secret, but I have missed the deadline for USC. I am transferring for a whole host of reasons-financial, social, academic, the whole nine yards</p>

<p>Thanks so much for your input; I'm kind of bummed I didn't get a chance to look into USC before it was too late.</p>

<p>well, can you hang in there 1 more year and apply to USC next in Jan of next year?
So tell me more of what you are looking for. As I'm sure you know, transferring into highly selective colleges is even harder as a transfer student than as a a freshman.</p>
