I am dissatisfied with my university. Nay, I dislike it a lot, albeit much of this is my problem, not the university's fault, etc. I yearn to study in a place I know I would enjoy, love even (I knew I would dislike my current one on the onset). And there are also long term concerns about university's status. Mine is not high in the hierarchy, and I'm still nervous about how much the university itself actually counts.
So is pursuing a better university and one I know I would enjoy actually worth it? Time I don't see as much of an issue, as if I did get into another university I would be leaving it and entering work at 23 or 24 (assuming its an American one) as oppose to 21, and something that will be worth it in the long term if a good university and one I love. If I dislike my university and it is not high on any hierarchy is it worth pursuing another one? Does the university itself even matter or is it about the individual with the institution largely irrelevant (the most I've read of this are some vague blanket statements about the institution only mattering if Oxbridge, Durham, or some Ivy League)? What factors am I not considering? Is such a pursuit ultimately foolish?
...Should I go back to school?
