I joined this site to ask questions, not to be told that I'm an idiot. My cousin is an MIT grad, so I am well aware of the difficulty to get in, the cost of attendance, and the caliber of the education.If you've "been looking" at MIT, you undoubtedly know how difficult it is to transfer there. If you have a reasonable shot at transferring to MIT, you don't need "recommendations" from anyone, as MIT is a world-class institution.
So, I would contend your question is pointless. Of course everyone is going to "recommend" world-class institutions. Whether or not you can get into them is a different story.
Thank you for being the first person who has been helpful in answering my question.It is difficult to give advice as to schools to transfer into without more understanding of what you don't like about UVU, what you want in a university, and how your doing academically.
Unless you have some impressive accomplishment, it is fairly unlikely that you will get into MIT as a transfer. It has a transfer acceptance rate of ~2%. Already the applicants are self-selected, most doing very well (excellent grades, research, etc) at universities all over the world. Similarly, most of MIT's peer institutions (caltech, harvard, princeton, yale, stanford, uchicago, etc) have similar statistics.
I would recommend figuring out what you really want to do, whether you can do that at UVU or not, and if not look at lots of schools throughout the spectrum of "competitiveness".
