College Hunting! Answered
Hello, my dear Instructablonians!
Life has been busy, and I haven't been on here in AGES! I'm sure many of you have no idea who I am, and those of you who do know are either dead or are too afraid to admit they know me. But no matter! Let's continue!
In case you didn't know, I'll be graduating from high school next year! Yippee!
That means I get to go to college! Yippee!
But first I have to find a nice college so I will be happy and learn very goodly.
My dilemma is this: with 4000 colleges in the US of Awesome, there's really just too many apples in the basket, so it's hard to tell which is ripest (or, only a slightly cynical yet perhaps more accurate note, the least bruised).
So, my fellow Ibl'ers, this is why I've come to you: to ask you for opinions on good colleges!
Why you? Why, because I know we are similar! Instructables is full of inventors and makers and engineers! That's what I want to be when I grow up :-)
Also, many of you are either getting ready for college yourselves, or already in college, or have already finished college altogether! Perfect candidates, you see?
Anyways, just tell me about good schools you know of. Some of my criteria:
* I'm looking for 4 year institutions
* I don't wanna leave the US - too far from the nest, you see?
* I'm interested primarily in engineering (mechanical, aerospace, computer) and architecture (houses, not skyscrapers, in case you were wondering :-)
* Private or public - I don't really care
Assume that anything I didn't mention doesn't matter to me (oh, before I forget, I'm a guy, so no girls' schools, unfortunately). Also, feel free to discuss other colleges too! Good luck to anyone looking for a college, and TIA for anyone who helps out :D
