Main Question or Discussion Point

I want to do land development as a job when I am older, possibly get a job with a home building company out of college, or other development company (that builds hotels, offices). I have been accepted to the U of Arizona with a full ride (and iPad :tongue:) and they have a major called Regional Development in the school of geography which deals with regional planning from what I've read... Would it make sense to double major in Civil Engineering and Regional Development, or maybe just a minor in regional development?

Also, I have also been accepted to the University of Texas at Austin (but paying out of state tuition). Would it be dumb to turn down this school even though it has one of the best engineering programs in the country? ....Basically, would job prospects be much better with a degree from UT than UA to justify the extra $30k/yr?

The programs are markedly different. Do you want to be an engineer? It's also okay to get an engineering degree and not be an engineer.
