I have a BIG decision to make. I am currently a sophomore at Vanderbilt, but I am pretty unhappy here so far. Everyone seems really stressed out and sad, and I just get negative vibes in general. My teachers are not great and classes are crazy hard. Nobody cares about sports. The boys are ugly and cannot talk to girls (shouldn’t be that important, I know), but it makes the parties really boring and also nobody dances at them??? the meal plan is wack. Club sports are basically a joke. People are really nice, but I am having trouble really having fun with them and am pretty bored honestly. Okay sorry enough complaining. Things I really like include the area (Nashville is sooo cool) and the campus location because it is easy to walk to restaurants and coffee shops, and there are tons of cute boutiques. I really want to get involved in more clubs and service organizations, but Vandy is so busy and I feel like everyone does everything for there resume.
I applied to transfer for next semester. I would really like to be in a sorority, have good school spirit, good professors, be able to study abroad (I am a biology major, might switch to Econ), play club sports and intramurals, and have a good social life (options to go out 3-4x a week). I also wanted to reduce my stress by going to a slightly less insanely hard school, but I do want a work hard/play hard environment.
I got into: Wake Forest, Villanova, Tulane, Boston University, and Boston College
I know Vanderbilt is technically a better school, but I honestly just want to be happy. For reference, I am a girl from New England and pretty preppy, I like to dress cute for class usually. Also I love Boston itself but not a huge fan of the cold.
