So, I just wanted to know, so mabey some of us can get together and create a team if we go to the same place. I’m looking at a few places too, but I want this not to be about me, plus I don’t even have a small list yet…
By that do you mean you don’t have a list at all or that your list is too big? Because that’s my problem. =)
I took the huge stack of all college junk mail I’ve ever gotten, threw out all the all-girls liberal arts colleges in towns that have more cows than people and made a huge long list of everything that was left. (No offense to girls that are into the whole all-girls thing or anyone into liberal arts or rural areas, those are just the bottom three things on the list of my own personal “things I want in a college”). The plan was to look into the schools on that list, check out what majors and programs and sports they have and then shorten the list.
The list still has about 60 colleges on it. =) Yay for procrastination!
Some schools on my list that I’ve noticed from this thread are Drexel and Cornell.
Other notable schools on the list include Carnegie Mellon, Cooper Union (mostly because my parents really want me to go there :)), Lehigh, Florida Tech, and Case Western Reserve.
But being an overachiever I’ve also got Columbia and MIT (yay geekiness) at the top of my list…
MIT TECH (if i get my grades up enough)
Full Sail (animation computer gaming school)
The Institue of Art in Boston or San Diego
ive been interested in engineering since i joined the team, but i am a hardcore gamer, i am starting to make mod’s, and i have serveral maps out for UT2k3 and soon 2k4. I am also starting to learn 3dsMax and Maya for next year’s animation, and for my own enjoyment =D and Adobe Photoshop for 2d graphics, textures, and signature art.
edit it’s really kinda sad, when your Girlfriend (who is a sophmore) has more idea and advance’s in what she wants to do and go than i do =P
I only want to go to the University of Maine in Orono. It is a beautiful school and another big plus is my boyfriend decided to go there as well. I want to major in Psychology or Social Work with a minor in music. Anyone should take a look at the school it is good sized about 11,000 students and has a great campus although it is in the middle of no where. Doesn’t have a Robotics team yet though.
I’m considering the University of Michigan and Purdue…both have FIRST scholarships, and both have programs in aerospace engineering. I’m not sure what I want to do, but I’m currently leaning towards aerospace.
Then again, it depends on what I’m offered. I’m the kind of guy who should have no problem getting accepted - 35 on the ACT, a perfect 4.0 GPA (so far), a very demanding extracurricular in FIRST…
In the end, though, it’ll probably come down to money. If I can get a full ride to a school with a program I like, I’ll definitely take it.
