My son has high GPA 3.97 & SAT scores 1500 (Math770 Writing730). He has great aptitude for math & science, but if asked what interests him, it's music. His spare time is spent analyzing music, composing music, and marching band. He has no idea what he wants to major in. His scores in math and science (got 5 on AP Calc AB & a 4 on AP Chem test) point him towards engineering, but he has no idea if engineering would be something he would like to do. He is very cognizant of the cost of college and does not want to waste money while he figures out what he wants to do. He wanted to skip a year after graduating, but we parents think that is a bad idea. Since engineering usually means applying to the Engineering school/area within a college, it's hard to start undecided and be assured of transferring into Engineering later. We are in Colorado. Does it make sense for him to start at community college while he figures things out? Or do you have career suggestions for a passionate musician who sadly realizes that music is not a feasible career (doesn't want to teach)?37 replies
