Im really considering going into engineering next year (freshman year) at Oberlin because of how much i like the field and because of oberlins strong science department. Well i stumbled across this Oberlin College Course Catalog
This 3 / 2 program pretty much says that youll spend 3 years at oberlin focusing more on the sciences and maths and youll earn your liberal arts degree in 3 years. And then aftert that youll go to one of oberlins partner universities and get your engineering degree in two years. This sounds like a real solid plan if i interpereted it correctly. Also it says that oberlins partner universities are cal tech, washu, and case western, does that mean that assuming that i get good grades i will be able to atttend any one of those fine schools? Like is it easier to get into these universities through this program than it would be if i was just applying to grad school? ALso it says a partnership with columbia is in the works, how long do you think this pending partnership would take because columbia would be my first choice for grad school due to its location and other factors?
