Would switching schools have a negative effect on my application? I currently go to an art school, however this year we got a new writing teacher and throughout the duration of the year, I feel I haven't learned anything new from her. My old school has more opportunities and would allow me more free time to be involved in different things. I believe I could become involved with my old school's student council as I have here. The thing that is holding me back though is how this will look on an application. Will it look like I have no dedication to something if I go back to my old school or will it look like I'm striving to find the place that would allow me the most opportunities? Is there a place on the application I could explain why I left? As always all input is appreciated if not taken with a grain of salt.
