The ink on my son's college application to Texas A&M is not even dry yet and he thinks he is considering changing majors! Of course, he is a senior in high school, so he is not supposed to have his life figured out.
Since he was in 7th grade, he has wanted to be an engineer. Then last summer he changed to business. He now feels that he is better suited for engineering and would like that better.
He has applied to A&M and is Auto Admit. I see where he can change majors on his application, so we can get that done. However, I know that engineering applications are handled differently. Will he still get the Auto Admit next month and then be in a holding pattern until engineering is decided? Or, will they not decide on admission to the university until he is accepted into engineering.
I think he is a strong candidate:
Top 3.25% of his class
34 ACT- 36 Math, 35 English, 34 Reading and 32 Science. (He will take it again next month)
8 AP classes through his Junior Year- 5 more his senior year
Including AP Bio, AP Cal BC, AP Physics
Lots of EC and leadership
Has worked since he was 16.
