Main Question or Discussion Point
I am entering senior year in a Private High School and I feel a little trapped. As my old School Counselor has retired, my new counselor doesn't have the feel for my wants and needs. I was wondering if some people on this MB could give me some advice. Of course I am not going to take each response with a grain of salt and not entirely base my decisions on them. My background is as follows. I have a 3.75 GPA on a hard grading scale, my ACT score was only a 27 (no calculator on test day), Eagle Scout, Varsity Debate, National Honors Society Treasurer, and all that bunch of crap. I have been wondering what college should I go to (or get into) that would best prepare me for a science career( I am currently looking at Physics, Aerospace Eng., or another Engineering/Math related field). I also would like to go to Grad School. I have been looking at Univ. of Mich, MSU(they sent me a letter basically saying I would be accepted by October 30th if I sent in an App), Rose Hulmann, and have been oggling Harvard and MIT (although I seriously doubt that my App would make it to the table before hitting the garbage can). I was just wondering what some of your thoughts were. If you have made it into one of these colleges, please tell me your experience and your thoughts on my chances.
