D has interest in, and has done quite well in STEM classes. Is tentatively planning on ME based on classes she has enjoyed in HS.
But because she was unsuccessful getting into a summer program to sample ME (side note: who gets into Curie??? ANY program at Stonybrook???) she can’t be certain about ME, and is considering CS as a #2 option. Suggestions for schools good at both?
Home state is NY. Budget mid 50s. SAT 1510 (Math 780). Will have 9 APs by graduation (both Physics, Calc BC etc). Hispanic. Mostly sports related EC’s- nothing over the top STEM.
Related- any suggestions to help her gauge her fit for CS or ME? These summer programs would have been great, but…. I am hoping she can get a better sense of fit to answer her “why”, because you don’t transition slowly into ME. It gets intense right from the start.
