Well, you can always change your major. But I think you're required to declare a major by your sophomore/junior year of college. So I'm pretty sure you can always apply to that particular school later.
it is a 5 year program so the sooner the better. If so, take general electives and requirements fall semester, then switch.
take easy yet transferable courses (email an advisor to get them pre-approved) and get good grades. 3.44 is mean, but a 3.3 will be fine. You can't go wrong with a basic math class, English composition 1, political science, psychology, religion, or sociology.
Thanks so much! Do you think it would help to do extracurriculars like joining clubs? I'm already doing a 2 week study abroad program in Brazil because I thought that might look good.

Students who are unhappy generally figure it out within a semester and transfer out of UM, usually to somewhere closer to home. College is tough, especially the first couple weeks if you come without knowing anyone. Making a whole new group of friends for the first time since kindergarten is one of the hardest and most stressful things you may ever have to do. But the end result of this process is friendships that you'll likely maintain for the rest of your life. Whether it's your roommate, classmates, fraternity brother, or sorority sister, college is a time when you should make friends and have fun. Despite the initial challenges of coming to college, there are few cities in the world that are as fun as Miami.
