Do it.

I did a similar thing; I was at a very prestigious university in Boston and ended up transferring to a much less prestigious school back in California.  It was scary to do it, but it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I was so much happier for the second two years of school than I had been for the first two, and I still ended up getting into one of the top schools for my master’s program. 

If this second program will get you where you want to be, it honestly doesn’t matter if it’s less of a ‘name’ than where you currently are, ya know?

I truly believe in doing what makes you happy.  Everything will work itself out from there.

@Ittybittymonster:  Nope. I believe you should do what makes you happy! I switched my major after two years (and transferred schools) and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. I went from not doing well in school and hating my classes to doing great because I loved my classes!

Do what you love and love what you do. Never feel pressured into something because of titles, prestige, even money.

FH’s mother criticized me on the phone for my career prospects. She earned $80k a year at one point in healthcare and spent Christmases away from her kids, stuck them with babysitters all day & night for a bulk of the week, etc. That isn’t for me no matter how much money I was promised.

I will be a very happy freelance writer & photographer/pre-school teacher.
