Sorry for the double post, but, just wondering, what are you guys planning on studying (or currently studying if you're already in college)? I'm curious as to whether people are studying things related to what events they've done in Science Olympiad.
I'm going into biochem because of Protein Modeling. I also considered astrophysics for a while because of Astronomy.
Heheh, I refuse to go into biochem because of Protein Modeling (that event drove me INSANE...well, more insane).
I'm thinking of majoring in MechE with a specialization in Aerospace, with maybe a minor or a double major in Physics (a lot of the classes overlap, I would think); Caltech would be my dream school for that because of JPL, but I'll probably be happy no matter where I go, as long as it's a decent school with plenty of opportunities.
I also considered going into astrophysics for a while, but I decided that I'd rather be the person getting to design/create the cool stuff used to study astronomical objects, rather than staring at graphs and data tables and blurry blobs for hours on end :P
