This past year, I decided to transfer from UC Riverside to UC Berkeley for Fall 2021 as an undergraduate student. I was studying Business Administration at UC Riverside but I will be studying Economics at UC Berkeley as a junior transfer.
Upon committing to UC Berkeley, moving in to my apartment in August 2021, & beginning my classes, I find that I don’t really like it at UC Berkeley and I miss my time at UC Riverside. I’ve been really sad here & considering potentially moving back to UCR since they gave me the option to go back and attend UCR since I haven’t withdrawn from there yet. I have already spoken with both schools and it seems they don’t have a problem with me withdrawing from one and going to the other.
Since I already started classes at UC Berkeley, my main concern at this point would be whether it would look bad if I withdrew from here. Since the classes started, I’d be withdrawing rather than cancelling my admission at this point. It would state on my UCB transcript that I withdraw on such and such date etc, but there would be no trace of my classes/grades/units etc. I plan to pursue graduate school in the future, specifically an MBA or Law School and so these logistics with my transcript are important to me.
If anyone has any idea what the potential implications are of withdrawing from a university, please give me some advice! I’m worried about not potentially getting into grad schools because of this and would like some guidance about this matter!!
Thank you so much:)
