I'm not really sure how to rank the colleges. I've read through several different threads and the UCSD website but I still don't really know. So here's a little about me:
I want to be a ChemE major, or possibly bioengineering (basically any science-y engineering.) I'm not a very out-there crazy person with really strong beliefs in anything. I don't like English or history, so I want to avoid as many of those type classes as I can.
I'll be taking some AP/IB tests this May: IB Chem HL, IB English LAL HL, IB History of the America's HL, AP Physics C (Mech), AP Calc BC. I took the IB Econ test last May and got a 4 out of 7, which is barely passing (that's another class that wasn't my favorite.)
I love the beach, so I'd like easy access to it. Food and condition of the dorms doesn't really concern me. I'm considering doing ROTC of some sort. I'm a hard worker and love a good challenge, but I tend to procrastinate and over-work myself (if that helps any).
Thanks for your help!
