Need help making college decision for engineering!?
Colleges I'm interested in:
Very, very reach-y schools (AKA dream on, and meaning I'm not even sure I'd bother applying, but I'm still interested, and just to put in into perspective)
--wouldn't Oxford be cool?
Still rather reach-y
--Harvey Mudd
A wee bit less reach-y
--University of Washington (because I live in state) and I'd probably apply to UW Honors which is a bit more reach-y

Okay now stats.
I'm a Junior. It's March, so I only have first semester grades, and I haven't taken SAT/ACT/SAT II/AP tests for this year yet...
GPA: 3.96 unweighted, my school is stupid and doesn't weight grades
It doesn't rank until senior year, I don't think, and the rank is useless since the grades are not weighted.
9th grade
Honors English 9 A-/A
Honors Physical Science A-/A-
Math I A/A
World Geography A/A
School Service A
Arts and Crafts A
Team Sports A
Health and Fitness A
NOTE: my freshman year looks extremely lame, but I took all of the hard classes that I possibly could, and first semester looks bad because I transferred after like 2 months and had like no options for classes and had to take a mixture of random crap and required electives. That also explains the slightly lower grades in the advanced classes--I was a bit on the confused side after I transferred :)
10th grade:
Honors English 10 A/A
Honors Biology A/A
AP Euro A/A
Math II A/A
Pipe Band A/A- (no idea why...)
Racquet Sports A
Photography A
My school requires a LOT of P.E. classes... or so it seems...
Summer School: Math III A
11th grade (so far):
AP English 11 A
Pre-Calculus A
Pipe Band A
Astronomy (I'm getting 5 credits from UW for this class as well) A
Debate A (2nd semester I'm in P.E. again)
Planned classes for 12th grade:
AP English 12
AP Calculus AB
AP Physics
Honors Chemistry (mostly because to go into science you have to have taken chemistry... ugh)
Senior Consumer Economics (random required class)
Pipe Band

Intended major/career choice: I want to go into Astrophysics (so likely a major in physics) and that's why I took Astronomy this year, not because I'm lazy, it's a really awesome class...

I'm in Girl Scouts since 3rd grade
I'm on the Ultimate Frisbee team
I'm in a after school pipe band, because I play bagpipes, and I'm a girl, if that makes any difference
Link Crew--a freshman welcoming committee
I do community service, last year I led an art club at the local middle school
My friend and I are going to (hopefully) start a badminton club next year, just for fun, and because it's awesome!
I applied for the National Honors Society, no word yet
I'm currently applying for the Carleton Summer Science Institute, with my program of choice being in physics
Last year I won an honorable mention at a student biotech expo that included a lot of high schools from around my area, and I was competing in the category with the most entries.

WOW. that was a LONG list...
ANY advice/help would be lovely...
And... if you know of any other colleges I should look into that seem to match the ones I have listed, I would be very grateful, I'm always looking for new opportunities!

Thank you very much to anyone who answers this extremely long question, it would help a lot!

The Million Dollar Question--Chances of getting in?
hey...what are the top, small, undergrad. schools for physics....i dont want to go to big schools like harvard, yale, mit, harvey mudd, etc...i heard tha carleton college in northfield, mn is physics hard at carleton...and could u list some small schools that are good in physics...and say why each are good....thanks for all the help...


what are the best, small, undergraduate schools for physics?
First off, a little back story so that you'll understand everything. Basically, didn't do that well in High School just getting low B's and High C's despite the simplicity of those courses. I just didn't think any of it would be that important at the moment, and now its coming back to bite me in the a$$.

Well sort of anyway, I spent the time I was supposed to be doing homework learning computer programming and other divisions of computer science. I graduated high school May 2009, and wasn't sure if I wanted to go to college yet so I gave myself a year off.

Now it's January, and I'm wanting to go to college. I just took my SAT's and will be getting my scores back on February 19th. I've been looking at Colleges such as:

Rice University (First Choice)
Harvey Mudd (heard this school was tough, but i've always liked a challenge)
University Of Texas at Austin (School i've always dreamt of going to)
Texas A&M
Ohio State
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

I am VERY interested in genetic programming, and have been toying around with it lately. I am also well versed in OOP principles, and making flexible, reusable, and extensible programs. I have experience developing software for clients via freelancing websites such as and

As you might be able to tell, I am very confused as to what I need to do now. I was wondering if applying genetic programming to solve some sort of problem would increase my chances of getting into these schools. Would any other type of computer programming projects help my chances of getting in? Is my real world software development experience helpful in getting me into college?

Also, my family is making little to no income right now so I should be eligible for financial aid. I have found a ton of resources online, but I'm not sure what to do with all of them. I'm basically lost right now, and asking for some guidance for anyone that has been in a similar situation. Also, here is a list of skills that I have:

Graphic Design (beginner to intermediate)
PHP (5 years experience)
C# (3 years experience)
*nix administration
I'm great with Regex
Security vulnerabilities ( and finding vulner. on local machine)
C++ (beginnner)
Java (beginner to intermediate, very similar to C#)
Search Engine Optimization
Internet Marketing
Affiliate Marketing
Ad copy testing/tracking conversions
Google Adwords Specialist

I also might consider playing football in college, here are my relevant attributes:
6'4 198 lbs
4.6 40 yard dash
225 lbs X 1 (weak I know)
32" vertical
4.43 20 yard shuttle

Another thing of note is I have impeccable balance and control of my body due to training parkour for 2 years. Here is parkour:


As you can tell, i've had a ton of hobbies over the years... any help or guidance is appreciated.

What would help my chances of getting into College the most? General guidance needed 4 CompSci/Football Guy.?
I want to be a Chemical Engineer and my second cousin(who is a scientist) told me that Harvey Mudd is the best school for science where I live. She told me to get the best grades I can, befriend my high school teachers, and score good on the SATs. but I wanted to know if they accept a lot of people per year.
Any advic?Opps, Advice*Opps, Advice*

How hard is it to get into Harvey Mudd College?
My mom and I are going to go on a trip during spring break to California. The main purpose of the trip is to visit colleges, because we have already gone there a whole bunch of times, and there isn't much else to see. That, and probably shopping. Anyways, I want to come up with a list of schools to try and visit. Right now, I have these schools.

UC – Berkley
Claremont McKenna
Harvey Mudd College
Pitzer College
Scripps College

So I'm only a freshman, but this was my mom's idea, and my plan is to go to these schools, and take notes, and then when I get to be a junior and senior, I can review my notes, and see if I want to re-visit the schools. Next year we'll go to the east coast. Anyways, I want to know what other schools I should add to my list. I feel like these are well known schools. I want to look at schools with good academic reputations. Any part of California is fine. We have a full week, and a rental car to go anywhere.

What are some good colleges in California?
I'm a sophmore in high school and the counselor recommended harvey mudd for me because of my overall grades and my math level. My major activity is varsity cheerleading. She said it would be different than what I am used to and would be a difficult adjustment and stuff because of different people than those i normally hang out with. Why? I dont really know the reputation of that school.

My schedule this year is:
Calculus AB (AP)
French (AP)
English (hon)

I have a 4.0 unweighted. idk what my weighted is.

I am a varsity cheerleader and dancer (9years)

Most of my friends from cheerleading and stuff want to go to Texas and Florida ( what they say party schools) I dont know if i want to go somewhere different. is harvey mudd a party school?

Sorry i have so many questions but college is not really something talked about in my family or with my friends. oh and could my boyfriend get a football scholarship there?????

Would Harvey Mudd be a good fit for me?
can be public or private. I'm thinking the UC-San Diego, UC-Irvine range, no Harvey Mudd.

What are good colleges in California for out-of-staters that are not too hard to get in(but still prestigious)?
Im a junior in high school and Im in California. I want to major in engineering(dont know which one). What schools are the best? I was thinking about UC berkeley, harvey mudd, UCLA?, stanford, and which of the Ivy Leagues are the best for an engineering major? Also, i dont have any extracurriculars in engineering(i couldn't join science bowl). I didnt take the Math lvl 2 sat or the actual sat yet. should I just build a robot or intern at a company? I was thinking of this internship called BLIPS at uc berkeley. Any tips?

What colleges are good for engineering and what extracurriculars are helpful?
I am a senior in high school. I have taken spanish 1cp, 2cp, 3cp and deciding whether i want to take spanish 4 AP (Spanish Language AP). I am already taking:
Calculus AP (Yearlong)
Chemistry IB/AP (Yearlong)
English AP (Yearlong)
History of the Americas IB (Yearlong)
Marine Science CP (single term)
???????? (single term) -maybe spanish 4 AP

This might be kinda hard on me and for whatever reason i couldn't take it last year so im not sure how much of a difference it will make in the eyes of colleges if i take something else at this point in high school.

Is it worth it to take spanish at this point? I want to major in engineering and am applying to some UC schools and cal poly and maybe harvey mudd

How many years of Spanish should i take?
I've been looking at the internet over the past couple of weeks and a common theme I see about applying to college is the ability to distinguish oneself from other candidates. I've been thinking about all the things I do and I've been wondering how to make myself unique.

My dream school is MIT and my other top schools are Stanford, Harvey-Mudd, Caltech, etc.

I guess the most unique thing about me is that I started and am now running an open-source software project that deals with distributed computing. I also am in the process of getting together a online green energy retail store.

My intended major would most probably be computer science, although that is subject to change.

What's been bugging me over the past few days is whether this is unique enough. I don't know enough people who are applying to these schools to make this kind of judgment. I was kind of hoping that maybe you guys will.
