Transfer Advice/Help/Questions

<p>Hello, currently I am a freshman attending Boston University majoring in Archaeology and minoring in Latin American Studies. I plan on transferring because I feel my major here is too specific and i want a broad approach to archaeology with a basis in anthropology (only two anthropology courses are required for a archaeology major at BU); therefore, I know I will greatly benefit in majoring in anthropological archaeology, which BU does not provide. I feel the atmosphere at BU is not beneficial for me, the advising is unhelpful for the most part and at times rude, and lack of diversity is hard to handle especially when coming from southern California. I know i sound like a baby but i miss California, and everything time i return home im just happy unlike here in Boston. By the end of this spring semester I will have completed 28 semester units, having dropped chemistry the previous semester which I plan to take during the summer along with statistics. Currently my gpa is 3.23 which I expected will rise after this semester. I am a California resident, but I know that community college students are given first priority for UCs and that my gpa is not that high and there is the so called "grade deflation" at BU, but what can I do other than completing the GE requirements to increase my chances for acceptance. I want to go to UCSD or Pitzer College, but i applied to UCSC for fall 2008 and got in. So now im really unsure whether i should stay another year and risk not getting in or just go to SC which isn't as good as BU or SD.</p>

<p>i think it depends on how confident you are that you can improve your grades.</p>
