transfer dilemma!

<p>Right now I'm a freshwoman at Bryn Mawr College. I'm having quite a few issues, and I'd appreciate some input because honestly I've been having a hard time figuring things out and deciding what to do.</p>

<p>The transition to BMC has not been entirely smooth for me. I don't hate it here, but I don't love it either. I haven't clicked with anyone here yet, and I tend to focus on all the things I dislike. Overall, I'm just not satisfied with my experience so far. The academics are stellar, but the social life isn't really my scene. I've convinced myself that everyone is constantly working, and anytime I let myself have fun or take a break, I feel guilty about it. Also, I'm a city person, and even though Philly is close it's just a hassle to take the train in. Next semester, I'm going to stick it out and stay because I want to give Bryn Mawr a fair shot, but I've been considering transferring and I have a few concerns.</p>

<p>I'm guessing my gpa will be around a 3.3, which I know is not bad, but I really want to go to grad school. I was thinking if I transferred to a slightly less challenging school (specifically, Temple U), it might benefit me. I guess this is the whole good school vs. good gpa dilemma. </p>

<p>I'm also really worried about transfer admissions. I want to be in a urban environment, so I've been looking into Temple University, Drexel, NYU, and Fordham. With a 3.3-3.4 from BMC after this year, would I be likely to be admitted as a transfer? </p>

<p>Another problem is that Bryn Mawr is allowing me to graduate in 3 years, which will save my family money and is a great opportunity for me. I might not be able to do this at another school. So that's just another negative aspect of transferring I suppose.</p>

<p>i think your gpa may be too low for nyu, but you could possibly have a shot at the others. maybe stay a little longer and apply for the spring to nyu if you can hold out.</p>
