Transferring Schools

  1. Jun 24, 2009 #1
    Hi, so I am going to be transferring to a new college in a year and I want to know some opinions on what I should do, I don't have much experience in this or much knowledge of the difference between science programs at these schools.

    I checked with some colleges and I could possibly get into them if I did really well for my first year and retook the SAT. These colleges are:

    University of Arizona (would be easy to get in and it's in my town)
    Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Harder, but surprisingly do-able)
    Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Still Hard, but do-able)
    Northeastern University (Hard yet Do-able)
    University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (Do-able)
    Clark University (Difficult yet Do-able)

    I would like to study some kind of science (math, physics, chemistry, or engineering) so obviously RPI or UMich would be a no brainer but it would cost me a lot more and I don't have scholarships or anything...and prolly won't. I would like to get my PhD and I'm not sure if U of A would be good for getting into a much better grad program. Thank you for your opinions.
