UofM vs CMU and MSU - Help?

    Hey, I'm from Michigan too, and am also looking into engineering, finance, and so on, but mostly engineering.

    I asked my teachers on advice for the best schools in engineering and she who is a big Go To Central! and Go To State! fan, says that do NOT go to CMU for engineering. I guess their program is small and limited and doesn't offer many options. I can see how the full ride is enticing though, but I think college is only once in a lifetime thing.

    Obviously the best is U of M, but State isn't a bad option either. I would wait until FA packages came out from each of them, and then compared. It might be best to go to U of M, according to rankings, but you wouldn't screw yourself over by going to State either, because they're pretty good in engineering and finance.

    Overall, I don't think any choice is that bad, but good luck with the decision.

    hoffy, you'll know your aid package in a few weeks. As for what aid you'll get, there are two state programs you should qualify for. The first one is the MEAP award, if you took the MEAP test in high school. There's also the MCS that you should get. Should be 2800/year to each school.
