Hello, I am new to these forums, though I have found myself here for homework help on more than one occasion :tongue:. I was at a small liberal arts college for three years as a biology major with the intention of going to medical school. During my second year I decided I wanted to pursue science, and so I took calc based physics, calc 2, and so on. After my third year I decided to switch my major to physics and I transferred to Iowa State because I figured it would be better graduating from a larger, science oriented school rather than a liberal arts school. I am currently enrolled in modern physics, multivariable calc, diff eq, and mechanics, and I have a year left to finish up after this one due to switching my major late. The problem is, I'm not happy here and I gravely miss my old school and I want to transfer back. However, if this would compromise my future I don't think it would be worth it, and I'd rather suck it up for another year and a half. Do physics graduate schools select applicants based on the school they graduated from? Would Iowa State look better than a small liberal arts college? Thank you all for any help.
