Is it worth transferring to Harvard in my sophomore year, if i'm attending a good school? (Say Top 25 schools?)

I'm no expert on the subject, but I guess you could say that it depends. If you are happy at your school and satisfied with the education you are recieving there, then I would have to say no, its probably not worth transferring.
However, if you are unhappy and unsatisfied with your school, and want to explore other options, then yes, by all means, take the transfer route.
I recently read somewhere (maybe it was Newsweek?)that individuals who do not attend Ivy League schools but attend schools with respectable names nontheless, ie, say, "Smith" or "Duke" end up doing just as well as those who have earned an Ivy League education.

I hope this helps, and I wish you all the best in your decisions.
