I'm a freshmen at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I recognize that this is a great school, but I am feeling really down, and I just don't think it's the place for me after spending a couple of months here.</p>
<p>My grades are actually fairly low here due to my severe lack of motivation because I'm so unhappy. I'm taking gen-eds while I plan to major in music. I am taking a full 16 credit hour load, with English (an A or so), Calculus (a B- or so), Intro to American Government (a B- or so), and French (a C or so). </p>
<p>My SAT when I applied to be a freshman was a 1410.</p>
<p>I used to do many things... don't know if they're relevent now coming from a college setting. Drum major of high school marching band, vice president of theater, big computer repair person, a month of environmental conservation work, sang with a choral group that toured around Paris (and sang in Notre Dame cathedral) and much more, all because I enjoyed it very much.</p>
<p>In any case, I look at schools where I didn't apply or didn't get off the waitlist: Oberlin (didn't apply), NYU (waitlisted), Washington University in St. Louis (waitlisted). All very different universities, but all appeal to me in ways that UMich is lacking.</p>
<p>My questions are as follows:
1) Any immediate thoughts about my chances of transferring to any of these for fall semester?
2) Does coming from UMich give me any better a chance with such slim transfer rates as say, someone coming from Ernie's College-o-Rama?
3) How can I find the transfer acceptance rates for schools like these?
4) Any recommendations about what I should do about my situation?</p>
