Main Question or Discussion Point
I am thinking of doing something called a "3+2" program, where I spend 3 years at my liberal arts college and 2 years at the Columbia Fu School of Engineering. I come out with a B.A. in any type of science or math from the liberal arts college and a B.S. in applied math (or any type of engineering like operations research). I think the benefit of this is that you get to experience two different college environments. I am thinking of doing a PhD in applied math( I know a lofty goal; it may change) after doing the "3+2 program." Have any of you, or any people you know done a dual degree, or something similar? Do you think this is a good idea?
