So, here's what I have written down so far: 1) Attend City College of New York. Obtain a CS/EE degree (or as much EE knowledge I can possibly get), maintain a 3.8 GPA, build solid math base. 2) Join MIT's EECS department, begin research into AI/robotics, software development, photonics, quantum electronics/computing, and nanotechnology. 3) Add MBA at some point. Estimated timeframe: 10 years. All this while working part-time with roughly 1-3hrs of commuting time. The major obstacles I see are maintaining a healthy relationship with the wife, managing limited finances, and utilizing time as efficiently as possible (studying on the bus and at work, sleeping at least 6hrs, and finding some fun time to not go insane). Any tips on how to polish this? Jordan Joab.
