Hi, I am the parent of HS Senior who needs help with choosing a major and narrowing down his college list! He's interested in Engineering/Design (initially he was thinking Architecture however, after speaking with a few people who have gone through B Arch programs has changed his mind to Engineering or Industrial Design, due to better job outlook and perhaps more flexibility with the degree). He would like to find a major in which he can combine his love of Design/Architecture with a STEM degree. He prefers medium sized school with an intellectual vibe preferably Midwest or East Coast. He's not really into Greek life (not opposed to it, just doesn't think it's for him) and would like a college community that offers many things to do on the weekends vs. partying. His stats: 33 ACT, unweighted GPA 3.88, weighted 4.6, NHS, Varsity tennis, strong leadership and extracurriculars, APs etc. His list thus far: Northwestern, Wash U, Purdue, Miami Ohio (too Greek?), Case Western, Univ. of Cincinnati, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Univ. of Illinois and Bradley Univ. (We live in Illinois). We realize some of these are reaches and may be too expensive. Ideally looking for strong schools that offer good merit and financial aid. Thank you for any advice!
