Can't you at least tell us what schools (to the new transfer contributor above) you thought seemed to make it difficult for transfers?


I have to agree somewhat. While I certainly appreciate the advice (a ton), and I completely understand the need for anonymity (for all of the reasons listed, and others), it would help so much to know what school you guys attend. I mean, is there somone really trying to figure out who each of you are at each school? Still, I understand the apprehension and am thankful for any advice I get. The extreme divide between the advice though is hard to reconcile.[/quote]

Yeah, this is the hard part for us. It's like telling someone that at the end of a rainbow is either a pot of gold or a lion's mouth, but not telling us which one is which. :)

Here's to hoping the anonymous poster feature is implemented on this board soon so the posters above can give us more details!

So true. Like I said, I am very grateful for the advice as it is and am certainly not going to judge anyone for not wanting to out themselves. I just wish there was a way to be like HEY - went to school A and it worked out, I went to school B and it didnt.

That being said, as a PT student, my options will likely be limited anyways and will have to go wherever I get in anyways (even being # 1 in my class).

Anyone else feel more pressure than ever to get good grades? I have almost anxiety attacks worrying that I am not doing what I did last semester/studying less/the classes are harder/the exams will be easier and everyone else will catch up/etc. etc. etc. and that I will absolutely screw myself. Probably just being a fuckin freak
