Where Am I Going?
I am so up in the air about college right now, I should own my own airline. Originally I thought about studying for a semester in Hawaii as part of a student exchange program, but after realizing I'd be over there with no car, no kitty, and an unsure living situation upon returning to UNH, I changed my mind.
Now I'm thinking about transferring schools all together. I love UNH...but I don't love walking through snow and slush to get to my classes. While snow is nice for the holidays, I don't enjoy it's presence from November to April. Sorry not sorry.
Next, Psychology is my passion and has always been/always will be. I know what I want to do with my life, and it involves Psychology. I also love Criminology, but UNH doesn't offer it as a degree program. This isn't a huge deal, and to make up for it my second major is Justice studies, and my minor is sociology. I don't particularly love either of those fields, but they both encompass a bit of criminology so I stick it out. It would be much easier if I could just dual major in Psychology and Criminology, which I know is an option at some other Universities.
Lastly, I want to go to grad school somewhere between Massachusetts and North Carolina. It would be nice to experience living a little farther from home now, while I can easily transfer back to UNH. Grad school is a whole other world, and I don't think it will be as easy to just change my mind and go somewhere else if I don't like my location.
Any thoughts? I'm currently thinking about going to school in North Carolina, but I'd be happy anywhere above it on the east coast. Has anyone else transferred for their junior year of college? Thought's and opinions are greatly appreciated!
