California State University Sacramento!
Chances are, I can finish my GE in so called "sophomore" (1st year) thanks to AP generosity, or at least the 3 non-math/science courses left in the GE.
Yeah, people say I can do better, but lets see who finishes college first, with the least debt, and land a job--internship with a local company with a job that is in demand shall make it easier.
Oh, and it's less competitive, so the on campus opponents are much easier and acceptance is no worry. I don't need to dorm with a roommate either.
Not to mention, what I'm doing correlates to what I love to do and a couple of the Sci Oly events.

I really can't decide between Harvard or Yale... oh and what about John Hopkins? Anyway, I want to go to college to study neurology and to become a neurosurgeon.

Why not consider the West Coast? Specifically, California? Even more specifically, Northern California (but maybe bear can convince you otherwise)? I hear there's this really good school... starts with an S... meh, can't remember the name. Just not that school with a golden bear as its mascot; I hear it's subpar compared to this S school. :P

But I'm probably going to apply to MIT and Cornell for EE(sorry bear)... Maybe I'll get in to one :D

what do you guys/gals think about UC Berkley? Anthropology, to be more specific.
Perfection. That’s what it’s about. It’s those moments. When you can feel the perfection of creation. The beauty of physics, you know, the wonder of mathematics. The elation of action and reaction, and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to.
