My JR HS son is passionate about ME or Aerospace or possibly bio med, but does not want a memorize and burn , lecture and test learning environment. He is storng in math and sciences but has LD with regard to english,& wants to avoid lots of reading and composition. What smaller schools have a learn by doing approach?? The big UC's would not be a match due to ginormous classes the first 2 years...
his list so far includes cal poly SL, and CPoly Pomona, and embry riddle or Trinity U
Many do not seem to even get beyond theory and basic req's until well into junior year.
A warmer climate would preferred, as would W. of the mississippi,
he has a 3.7 4. GPA weighted
1950 SAT total
EC's include private pilots lisc, Civil Air patrol, several construction mission trips abroad
a Christian school would be o.k. he is also hoping to do AFROTC
