During the college application process during my senior year I laid back and let my parents do the work-big mistake. They convinced me to attend Miami University and I went with it. It's not that Miami isn't a good school, but I quickly discovered it wasn't a fit for me. My grades were not as stellar as they could have been: I finished my freshman year with a 2.61. I had many struggles during the year-family problems and depression, which lead to my relatively poor performance.
I have decided that I can't go back to Miami again because I'm completely miserable there, and I'm thinking about transferring to Ohio State. The only problem I have is my GPA-will I still be able to get in? Since I want to transfer after my first year, will my high school grades be more important than my college one? If so, that's a good thing-I had a 3.5 GPA in high school. And can anyone advise me on the transferring process in general? I don't entirely know where to start.
