I have a full ride at a TINY private Christian college I hate, I wanna transfer...
So, when I was applying to colleges, I applied to a tiny private Christian school knowing it was the only place for a choral degree. I received a full ride here, but it was after I changed my major into STEM. This school has a very small emphasis on STEM because the whole school is either Christian studies majors or childhood education. The school of my dreams, Clemson, was the second school I applied to. I’ve known since I was a freshman in high school I wanted to go there, and my older sister graduated from Clemson. She constantly talks about how much fun it was, hard, but fun. I HATE my college with a passion. I grew up in public school and I prefer not to build meaningful relationships with people I just go to school with. I hate for people to know my personal life, and I just want to be a number. The college I got a full ride at is the opposite. People constantly tell me, “oh I’ll be praying for you” and I can’t hide in a class of 7 people. Everyone is too personable, and I feel like Clemson is a better fit for me. The only problem... I was accepted into Clemson Engineering, but I changed my major at my current college to BioChem. I’m scared that at Clemson I will hate being in STEM because of how difficult everyone says it is. I’m not struggling at all at my current university, which is nice, but I absolutely cannot stand the people, social aspect, and environment of my current university. Not to mention that I only go to college 15 minutes away from my house... which makes it even worse. My current university has zero diversity and everyone things in a very small close minded box, but I want a school with diversity and people from places other than South Carolina. I wanted to spread my wings in college, but instead I’ve developed horrible anxiety and I cry every time I think of going back to my university. The only problem with transferring, I currently have no tuition because of my scholarship, but transferring, my parents offered to pay for Clemson, but they want me to stay at my current university because they absolutely love it. I don’t know what to do... HELP PLS7 replies
