If you drop out to reapply that's going to be a huge red flag to other programs and you will have to tell them. Having your relatives living in another state is not anywhere close to grounds for transferring. My advice: finish up at Loma Linda, try to enjoy your time in another part of the country, and then move back to Maryland when you graduate. The time will go fast.

Thank you for your response.
I don't want to quit the school. Can I reapplying while I am in D1? to see if I accept in Maryland University or Howard University?
I have no idea if I can do that. or from whom I can get this information?

Did you not get accepted by Maryland or Howard last cycle? If so, why do you think you will this go around? Like I said, it's really not going to look good if you drop out of Loma Linda - you will look risky to any other program. Even if you can manage to get into one of the two, you'll almost certainly have to start over as a D1 which means you've lost an entire year's time and tuition. Are you just feeling a bit homesick right now? My best advice for that is to reach out and make some new friends, either inside or outside of the dental school.

Howard took a transfer student this year, but its complicated, and the transfer student is super lost because Howard doesnt know what the hell theyre doing. The student has been attending classes for 2 weeks now, unregistered, no supplies, no books, no access to blackboard, emails etc. Everyday faculty is leading the student to dead ends on who to talk to. its a mess
