I currently attend University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and will be a sophomore. I spent my freshman year at the University of Miami, a school that's similar in caliber, but ended up transferring to UIUC as I was miserable at Miami and live about 100 miles from UIUC. My grades were good, I'll be starting at UIUC with a 3.84 GPA but my goal has been to go to UC Berkeley. I didn't have the chance to apply to UCB after Miami as the deadline had passed and I didn't get in as a freshman. I think with my college grades and EC'S I have a decent chance. However, everyone I've told has advised against it as they say it'll be a a red flag with med school admissions. I have no issues with transferring again and think a UCB education is as good as it gets. Is it worth it?
