<p>Hi, I am kind of looking a little far into the future as a sophomore in high school, but I wanted some feedback on colleges that would fit my needs. </p>
<p>I am planning on majoring in mechanical engineering, and possibly minoring or double majoring in some type of music. I would like a college that has a engineering school that is considered "good", and preferably a good music department as well (although the music is less important). The east coast is interesting me, as is michigan, but I would go other places too.</p>
<p>I would also like the college to have lot's of "indie" people, and a big music scene. I would prefer an urban environment, and an interesting city. I would probably need to have financial aid or take out a student loan, so a low tuition is nice too. </p>
<p>I test in the top percent, but I slacked in my freshman year so I have a 3.75 gpa, taking the most challenging classes available. I am guessing I will have about a 3.8 or 3.9 for all of high school, and around a 32+ on the ACT.</p>
<p>I live in Lawrence, KS, (Home of KU) but I am not sure if I want to stay here, as the city is starting to look more and more like bland suburbia. </p>
<p>What would your suggestions be?
