I think many times, many people were in the position of not knowing what University to choose for them, or to indicate for their children. It's so true that once you are out of the business, or once you are focused with learning, probably you will make a short list with top 5 Universities that you are interested without making some further analysis or search on the other markets, and Universities. Latin market, Spanish one its incredible and people are often very surprised to see why some of their University are so great or have so much interest from all over the world. Well, think this, where else can you simply learn "sprachaufenthalt England" where people actually speak Latin!? Probably nowhere.
This time of year, when school already started its to late probably to think on changing school, but is never too late, to consider starting a new one. For many reasons, i would not recommend removal to a different school, but in major cases yes. Right now a faculty is the next door to your future, and probably you forgot the way of asking why, how will affect this my life. No one is capable to tell you, but one thing is sure. A good student will ever have results, in social life as well. We are not perfect and we can't predict what will come in the next times.
As an anecdote, most of my colleagues that didn't do a good faculty but they had a good reputation during primary school, now they work for a medium salary. Is it because they where not smart enough? I hardly think that. What i think is this. When you want to choose between a good live support and a life conduit, everyone or most will choose the easy road. Right now in life when you want to go easy you will simply have to wait a lot more time to redo the lost time.
