I decided to post here, because the topic was already created. I am in the top 40% at a school that is ranked 68 by USNWR. I do not like the city I am in (I am extremely unhappy, almost on the verge of a break down and can't stand it here), and want to move back to Chicago which is my home town...If I am able to pull up my grades a bit more, what are my chances of getting into schools in Chicago --the ones I really wanted to get into don't seem feasible anymore because they are top ten schools. But what about Chicago Kent --ranked 66; or even De Paul --88 (I don't care transferring down, I just need to get out of here before I loose my mind!)Let me know if you guys think transfering down is a stupid idea, or if I have chances of getting into better schools than De Paul.
If you're not happy, then don't stay. No matter what anybody says, get out! You'll feel so much better when you're back home.
