I'm wondering what kind of etiquette one should follow when applying to university. Right now I'm in CC getting all of my calculus, diff eq, and linear algebra done. That way I can apply to OSU (Oklahoma) for mechanical engineering. Next semester I'm taking Calc1 then spring I'll be taking Calc2. Currently I have a 4.0 and I am going to do everything I can to keep that GPA as long as I can. I was thinking about applying to OSU after next springs semester though just to see if i get in. If not, I was thinking about applying to quite a few other places, Texas Tech to name one. I don't know if this is frowned upon though, because if I get accepted, I won't have money to go there without a lot of scholarship money. So it will be a wasted acceptence for them. I will be financially stable enough in 2 years though, whenever I intend on transferring. I also don't know what kind of rules there are to how many semesters you have to spend at a college to get a degree through them. Could anyone shed some light on the subject, or give me some advice? Thanks!
