I am applying to schools for the fall 2005 semester. I am having difficulties finding the ones I would like to apply to. I am looking at Colorado University in Boulder, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Tulsa. I have mixed feelings of Tulsa because it is my home town. I really want to leave. Aside from its location I really like it. It hosts several science contests and has a monthly physics meetings which I attend. I would love to go to CU in Boulder though. The scenery is good and they have a very nice Physics department from what I've seen. My plans for the future are to get a Bachelors in Physics and Computer Science and then a Doctorates in Physics. I would like to use my four year as a steeping stone to Berkeley though. Also my grades in High School are mediocre. I have a 3.6666667 GPA and a 27 on the ACT. Class rank is in the top 25% but I can't recall exactly where. Any suggestions on good schools, knowing that I am not MIT material.
