I think that with a good bit of UGers going to, being in, or just graduating from college we could use a college thread. I see people ask stuff a lot like "where do you plan go to school", "what about this scholarship" and "what degree do you have". Well, here is the palce to discuss college, financial aid, scholarships, college stories, or whatever. You can tell where you're going, what you want to do, or what your favorite college is. I plan on going to the University of Akron this fall. Anyone here go there, or anywhere local like Kent or Ohio State?

I'm looking to transfer there my junior year for Music Industry. I'm going to New Paltz the first two years because I love the campus and it isn't too far from home.

I'm applying to college as a music composition major.

Applying as a music major is a bitch. I have to do double the amount of application work that other majors do. I've had to run around the country for violin and guitar auditions, fill out not just the regular apps, but the music department apps as well and their separate essays. And I hear my results later than everyone else because colleges have to consult with their music departments only after auditions. Someone please play the world's smallest violin for me right now.

So far, I've only heard back from University of Maryland, which would be my in-state choice. I don't want to go there.

I also heard back from University of Hartford, but they're idiots who made the mistake of congratulating me on getting in, and then sending another mail 2 weeks later after realizing that I'm a music major so they revoke my acceptance until my music audition results are in. Assholes.

Other schools I'm applying to: James Madison, Carnegie Mellon, Penn State, Berklee, University of Illinois.

Btw, fuck FAFSA app. Biggest pain in the ass ever.
Edit: Also, Berklee app.

FAFSA was a bitch to do. When will I hear back about how much I can receive? I filed back in early January.

By the may, I plan on going to UA for Engineering, either computer or electrical. I can't wait

You probably won't get your information back for another couple of months at the earliest. You should know a general idea what Akron will give you in terms of scholarships based on your HS performance.

I got $3,000 in general from the Admissions office.. I should receive several grand more from the Honors College, and maybe even some from the College of Engineering. My GPA and ACT are pretty good. Are there any scholarships that I could definitely get with my ACT score? I got a 31, and I haven't bothered to take it again.

Read my first post.

Also, I haven't decided yet. Right now, I guess my top choice is Berklee purely because I love Boston. But Penn State looks great too.

Uh, you should be getting $6,000 from the main college itself. A 31 is pretty damn good, I got a 30 and got $6,000 a year and $3,000 a year from the Honors College. I didn't apply for any scholarships for Computer Engineering though, I don't know why I didn't.

I'm trying to get in the University of Washington to major in electrical engineering and minor in music theory. I want to design audio systems, and maybe design and build amplifiers on the side and sell them online (kind of like avatarspeakers.com )

You don't even really need a BS to design audio systems and amplifiers. You'll be surprised how your interests might change as you learn things throughout your college career in EE.

I applied a bit late but still, I sent in my general scholarship form back in January. My GPA is only 3.89 though, but still, other people I talked to got $6,000, so I don't know.

It's gets better in the subsequent years. Most of the information in the application will be retained next time you renew it, apart from a couple of numbers that you will need to update. Probably took about 15min to fill it out this year.

That's exactly what I plan to do.. I might try to major in both, since there really isn't much difference between them classwise. Have you heard of the University of Akron? If you live around Ohio, it's one of the best schools for engineering in the country. I'm not familiar with Auburn or VA Tech.
