Got questions about apps, essays, etc? post them here.

My number 1 is USC and im planning on going in for electrical engineering.
Followed by, in this order

10 schools:
Stanford
USC
Caltech
Cal Poly San Louis Obispo
Yale
UCSD
UCLA
UC Berkeley
UC Irvine
Chapman

Gonna major in computer science. If I go to either UC Irvine or USC, I plan on majoring in computer science with an emphasis in game development. Kinda leaning towards those two schools, 'cause that'd be sweet.

I applied to GCU which is a private christian university in Arizona. They don't jack the price up for out of state students (or in my case, people with expired Visas >.>. It's still pretty expensive though.

Already in, almost done. Never will I have to jump hoops for this bullshit ever again.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Four schools for music education:
UBC
UVIC
McGill
U of Toronto.

Don't know how I'm going to afford any of them, but ehh.


If you can't afford it, start out at community college. You'll take the same classes there that you would at a full 4 year institute.

This. I dropped out of 4 year and ended up doing my two year and becoming a helicopter pilot instead. And you know what? I'm happier and I'm going to make more money than most of my friends who did 4 year degrees.

Right, I know one of the colleges offer a B.A. program like that. I'll look into it, thanks.

Same, except I have to jump through hoops next year applying for grad school. In about 6 years you guys will be calling me Dr. rjdusa. (Plan on getting my Ph.D in Chemistry with an emphasis on medicinal chemistry).

Not everybody wants to go to university for "success" and "good jobs". To me it's all about education and the experience. And yes, this is pretty clichéd.

I'm only fifteen so I shouldn't be here. But I do put thought into this all the time.

Applied at University of Illinois and UTC a couple weeks ago. Still waiting for the results. BU was my top choice before, but dat shit expensive mayne
#15
USC
UCSD
San Luis Obispo and UCLA
UCB
SDSU

SDSU is my last resort. And UCB is last for UC schools...both my uncle and my dad say that people from UCB are "weird." Lol. So I'm just gonna keep that as a last resort even though it's a pretty elite school. And I plan on majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Alternate major would be computer engineering. I would love to learn how to make guitars or design bodies but I don't think the salary would support me :/ I wanna do what I love but not if the job can't support me financially of course :P

I want to do Electrical so i can design audio equipment, I mean it might not support me but hell i can get a job and learn to build amps and things on the side.

Colleges have woodshops and things like that and im sure there are electives you could take. You can learn to do woodworking crap on the side without it getting in the way of your education or your job. I doubt any of the people on UG who make their own guitars do it for a living.
