I am currently at a semi-target(BC). I was wondering if it is worth it to transfer to a target school for opportunities. I had pretty high stats in high school(4.0 UW GPA/34 ACT, sports, leadership, volunteering, etc), and am doing very well academically here so far. I am doing well here, but I I went to a pretty average public high school, which had barely the opportunities compared to my elite private school peers here. Its made me kinda feel bad about my lack of opportunities before and I don't want that to happen anymore as I can at least choose my college. Also, most of the private targets would also offer better financial aid than BC, so there's that.
Is it worth throwing a few transfer apps out there to some target schools? I know a lot of people at non-targets try to get to a semi target or target, but this is far less of a jump. It is the end of my freshman year, so it would have to be for sophomore spring or junior fall, and I'm not sure if that's too late to transfer and acclimate to a new school before recruiting begins. I know there are social issues with transferring too. However, I feel like I'm the type of person that would always regret it if I don't try. I was thinking maybe Georgetown(extended waitlist for freshman admissions, less selective for transfers) and UVA would be (slightly) more realistic targets to apply to. Any other schools I should look into and any opinions if I should seriously consider transferring?
