Why are you scared? Have some confidence kid! Afterall, you will be building our damn rockets to mars if you pursue that field.

Haha, thats true.

Im just afraid of the workload and the environment. After all, Ive lived most of my life here in So-Cal and if I get into MIT, Ill be making the transition all the way to Boston. Plus, Ill be surrounded by rich, smart kids rather than the rich, dumb kids you get over here

I'd recommend to look at Georgia Tech. #7 public university in the nation. D-1 football in a major conference. downtown ATL with tons of stuff to do, but still feels like any other college campus in a small town.

Seriously, PM the user I linked you to. He goes there and he would be able to tell you about his experiences there.

EDIT: Even though MIT is rated higher than Georgia Tech I have to agree with the guy that recommended it (well, at least if MIT doesn't work out ).
Miss Scourge? PM me.

Not everyone who gets into MIT is rich, but yeah, sure they are smart as far as their SATs and such go (and if you get admitted you are on par with them anyhow). Doesn't mean they can't be asshats and total morons outside of their niche. They are not superhuman, believe me. If you want it, go for it.

Yeah, you're right. Im sure they are gonna be similar to the people over here with the exception of being smarter than the average cookie. But yeah, Im gonna work really hard to get in, because I really want to work for NASA and design a space shuttle or something cool like that.

I'm not up-to-snuff academically myself, but it sounds like an awesome place to go to school. I wouldn't really be intimidated; from what I've heard it's a lot more laid back than you'd think.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

I know 2 people that are going there now. They like it. Lots of asians, so I'm told. It's no more work than any other engineering program, you just get to pay more and say you went to MIT.

Don't worry so much, you'll either get in or you won't. Cal-berkeley's pretty swell too if you wanna stay in california

****IN RAGE ON (academically).
