Advice please

<p>First, I'd like to say that this is my first post on here so hello everyone. I'm sure I'll get the hang of this site soon.</p>

<p>My situation is this:</p>

<p>At the moment, I am a second semester at Berklee College of Music. But I am strongly considering going to school for something else in a few years (engineering or computer science). My sights on which schools are fairly high but at the moment I don't feel like I have a lot going for me on my academic record. I coasted through high school on B's and C's (no D's in my school) not because I wasn't capable of better but because I had never really tried. I had known for some time I had wanted to go to school for music, so I didn't feel it was necessary to bust my ass for grades and SAT scores that don't matter to the colleges that I wanted to get into (kind of immature I guess). </p>

<p>Basically, I'm wondering what can make me look attractive to colleges so that they might look past my high school grades. </p>

<p>Most of the classes I'm taking right now are music classes, so unless I take more liberal arts outside of school I don't think my grades here will mean much (although I am doing well). Also, I was considering taking the SAT again but I am told that isn't practical for my situation.</p>

<p>You would get more help in the College Admissions forum or the Parents Forum... this is the standardized test forum.</p>

<p>lol thanks</p>
