<p>I'm planning to enroll as a freshman this fall at Loyola University Maryland, but I've been having doubts about my decision lately, and am thinking I may want to transfer after my first semester. I was so apathetic and lazy during the college application period last year that I didn't really put much effort into searching for the right college, and now I feel that I'm going to a school that doesn't suit me. I'm an English/Philosophy major (possible minor in Creative Writing), not into sports, not into partying, and think of myself as more of a quiet, serious person with a strong interest in the humanities.
Loyola doesn't seem to be any of that. A lot of the guys going to this school are sporty business majors, decked out in plaid shorts and collared shirts, few of whom like to read and most of whom spend their time waiting for the weekend so they can get drunk and maybe get laid. Of course I'm generalizing, but it's a somewhat accurate depiction of the kind of ethos there. I want to go to a school where kids like to read, are not really into sports or partying and are kind of serious. I mean I'm not saying I want to go to school with a bunch of pretentious hipsters, but somewhere where I can find more artsy English-y people.</p>
<p>So which schools might it be a good idea to transfer to?</p>
<p>Anyway, here are my high school stats, if they're worth anything.</p>
<p>Thanks for any help. </p>
<p>Oh, and also, when I'm applying for a transfer, do they look more at my high school grades or my first-semester college grades?</p>
