Transfering to Stony Brook

<p>I am a current Fordham freshmen. I am a biology major with a 3.9+ GPA. I am considering transferring to Stony Brook primarily due to their strong science department and available research opportunities/resources. Should I transfer for fall 2012 or stick to Fordham. The only thing that has me concerned is that Fordham is ranked in Top 50 and Stony Brook's ranking is 111 in US News. Any suggestions would be great. If your a undergraduate at Stony Brook doing premed, please mention that while giving suggestions.</p>

<p>Rankings are largely irrelevant and most systems are inherently flawed.</p>

<p>What exactly is your rationale for leaving Fordham? Research opportunities are available at nearly every school to students who possess a strong drive to succeed.</p>
