Choosing between University of Colorado Boulder and Penn State for aerospace
My son wants to major in aerospace engineering. He has been accepted directly into Penn State engineering and into Exploratory Learning at Boulder. Here after the first year he could transfer into engineering if he maintains a 2.7 or above. Is it worth the risk? He wasn't able to see the Penn State campus due to admitted student ours being cancelled-so he's only been to Boulder...which he really liked. It's a real bummer that he couldn't step foot onto Penn's campus. Any comparisons or viewpoints would be a huge help as his decision has to be made by May 1.2 replies
