I got accepted into UMiami (with scholarship) and into UCSB (without). Money is not a huge issue. I was rejected from USC but plan to appeal (although I doubt that I will get in).
I want to go to Miami because they have a Bioengineering major, which is what I want to major in - however, I'd rather go to UCSB because it is closer to home (Hawaii) and for other personal reasons. However, UCSB does not offer bioengineering and I was admitted into the College of Arts and Sciences, so no engineering for me.
Would it be better for me to attend Miami for the Bioengineering major? I plan to go to a grad school for Bioengineering, so I don't know if doing Biology will put me at a disadvantage or if a Biology major would not be a good fit for my future plan. The idea of double majoring is welcome to me; I'm not sure how the whole "creating a major" thing is, especially at UCSB.
