First, you seem very confused about what I am saying. I was not accusing OP of doing it for the prestige--you're probably thinking of the person who called OP a prestige whore.

As for my incapability, you'll need to forgive me for somehow construing "you don't have a particular reason to transfer other than prestige whoring" as somehow being insulting.

The irony is incredible.

i agree with this. someone might value an HYS degree the same way i value wine: it's expensive, but it's worth it for the experience of having it.

you may think that's irrational - and from virtually any numbers-based viewpoint, it is - but tastes are irrational anyway.

do yo thang OP, but it sounds like you need better grades to make the transfer.
