Hi, I have found myself in quite a predicament here and am unable to find a solution. The situation is as such: I am currently a sophomore in a non target school and have managed to procure an internship with ain S&T. I also have the opportunity to transfer to a top target school by the end of this semester or starting fall 2008. The only problem is that transferring to this target school would mean for me to spend a whole extra year getting my degree and maybe pay some more(which is actually a minor issue). If I stay in my current school (which I really like and enjoy although not that great of a school), I think I can graduate within three years or by May 2009. My question is, should I transfer and bear the some extra costs and the extra year just so I can position myself for better recruiting opportunities because honestly, most people I have spoken to so far have told me that target school branding is important at any stage in my career, although I am not sure how true this, and hopefully some of you out there can shed some light on this. Now that I have gotten this BB opportunity, will transferring actually make that much of a difference or will the BB name be good enough to help me get banking positions next year? Any insights and opinions will be appreciated. Thank you.
