I am a current undergraduate student at a small liberal arts college that is also single-sex. After a long period of soul-searching I have concluded that I am transgender and that my current institution is not right for me (for other reasons as well). Even though it is a great fit academically, I have decided to transfer to a coeducational college. (When I look for employment, I do not want to be “outed” to everyone who reads my resume.)
Unfortunately I do not know of many “transgender-friendly” colleges or universities. I am especially looking for schools that have good financial aid (a strong deciding factor) and strong neuroscience programs, and preferably (but not necessarily) are outside the Northeast. I am currently looking at Oberlin (which I was admitted to when I first applied to colleges in high school but did not attend because of lack of financial aid).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
