I basically have a choice this year between Stanford U. in California, McGill University in Montreal, Canada and Cambridge University in the UK. I will be studying Bio/Biochem at any place I go to, but really I want to be in Columbia!
I have to choose between these two soon, which one do you think I'd have an easier job transferring from in a year?

I'd say Stanford since its in the U.S. and of similar calibur to Columbia.

cambridge is of the same or higher caliber than both. where are you from, by the way? But if you are looking to tranfer, the process might be easier from the US--so go to Stanford. the UK system isn't very conducive to transfering. But you would probably hvae a better shot at columbia grad school if you went to cambridge...

a better shot from cambridge than from stanford? no.

Cambridge is the most famous school for science in the history of the world. Guys like Newton went there. I can assure you a Cambridge degree will give the guy a great shot at transferring into Columbia!

as will a stanford degree.

Find out how transferring credits from Cambridge to Columbia would work. If you can't get credit for courses you take at Cambridge, then you probably would have a hard time trasferring in. Also, transferring to Columbia in general can be annoying as you still have to complete ALL the core, just in three years instead of four.
Outta curiosity, what college at Cambridge did you get into?

(why? u'r familiar with Cambridge colleges?)

Yeah, vaguely. My dad was in Caius, I have a good friend in Newnham, one in JEsus and several friends going to various colleges next year.
I came close to applying to cambridge myself, but decided to come to the US and Columbia instead(I'm from England originally)

graduate school placement from oxford and cambridge into US schols is obscenely good, for those who want to--mainly because there are fewer applicants from these two, and of course they are very good academically.
Note: I think it is very difficult to tranfer between systems in the middle of undergrad, though.

don't worry about transfering. you can do that anywhere. choose the school you'd most like to spend a year at.
if you want to go to englang, go there. if you like sunshine, go to stanford, if you want to learn french MgGill sounds fun.
Don't choose your school based on Columbia. That would be like going to a college to be near your gf...what if you break up? Then you are at a school you aren't sure you want to be at.
I dunno...that's just what i think
