Hi, I'm currently a student in high school, and I found this forum. I want to go into aerospace engineering, due to two things - I love creating things, and I love aircraft and spacecraft, so it's a great fit, right? What I'm concerned about right now is the colleges/universities I should consider. Now, without limiting by GPA or test scores, etc, which colleges/universities would you guys suggest? I originally was aiming for Cal Tech (which I live close to), but I meet someone who told me Embry-Riddle was the place to go. He said Cal Tech and MIT were engineering research universities that happen to offer aerospace, whereas Embry-Riddle was an aerospace university more geared towards getting you hired with some hands on activities. I know I'm new here and all, but any advice is highly appreciated.
