I have recently been admitted to several schools and several programs, including UW, UDel, Drexel, Kettering, UCSC, OregonSU, CUBoulder, and several others.
I am having a really hard time deciding, but I am slowly narrowing it down to Colorado and Oregon State. I'm hoping for input.
My criteria for school is a great engineering program, a marching band, some career coop or study abroad, and now West of the Mississipi.
Good Points for each:
-- $9470/year merit scholarship, admitted to ME
-- I interviewed for the MECOP program high school preselect, and was one of 40 students from the three Oregon tech schools to get it. I now have two six month guaranteed paid internships worth $40K, but with a fifth year of school.
-- Rain, no snow.
-- $4000/year merit scholarship, admitted to Aerospace Eng, which is what I want to do.
-- I have a cousin at Boulder
-- Snow, no rain.
Since I was admitted to the MECOP program, my decision is moved from May 1st, like everyone else, to April 10th. My father and I are visited Boulder on April 6th.
Some input about this would be greatly appreciated!
