Transfer to UNC from UNC-C for a shot at Charlotte banks?
First time poster here. I was hoping some of you could provide some insight for my situation. I started college at UNC Charlotte this year with the intention of eventually going to medical school along the road. This is a complete non-target and I only went because the grants cover my tuition and I commute from home, which pretty much makes this a free degree. Certain experiences have made me realize that I have no passion for healthcare and I have been looking into finance for a while now.
Now I am wondering if I should transfer to UNC Chapel Hill, but I know it will be near impossible to get into KF as a transfer, and many of my business credits won't transfer, so I will have to settle with Economics if I do get in. I do prefer the finance major at UNC Charlotte. My goal is to stay in Charlotte for banking, preferably at an MM or BofA/Wells, although I know the chances are slim to none from my current school. I do really like it at UNC Charlotte and I feel like I can network around to our few alumni's at boutique banks (and one at Lazard) and score some internships, even during fall/spring times, because I'm right here in Charlotte, and have that advantage at least. If my best efforts don't get me anywhere, I would apply to Vandy/Nova for MSF and try again. On the other hand, I could attempt to transfer to UNC Chapel Hill and actually get access to OCR, but obviously I would come second to KF students, and may have to stay an additional year in school as well as pick up some loans and adjust to UNC.
I have a 3.8 gpa so far, and one irrelevant internship. High school grades were good (4.6), but I'm not absolutely certain I can get into UNC.
My question is should I stay at UNCC and network my butt off or attempt to transfer to UNC for better opportunities? Will it really make a huge difference for Charlotte banks?
