I'm finishing up my junior year hoping to go to WPI for physics, probably with a math minor. I might even get to take some physics classes at RPI next year.

Gah, the worst thing about college is applying.
You know that one time I said I was applying to 14 colleges? Well, now it's 16. Maybe even 17. And two early action schools. 8-)
GO SENIOR YEAR
Oh. Wow. This didn't happen.
Hahaha, yeah I remember that. And then you got into stanford :P.

My college admissions didn't go as well as I'd hoped, among my 6 target/reach schools I went 1 accepted/3 waitlisted/2 rejected. But hey, 1 is all you need.

So, unless I get off one of my waitlists (and even then I'm not sure I'd switch, would really depend on finances) I will be attending Tufts University this fall. I'm at least starting out as a Chemical Engineering major (I'm phrasing it that way because I think statistically most college grads change their major at least once).

Ah cool, I applied and got into both RPI and WPI. Liked both of them for different things, but they both gave me crap financial packages.

I'm setting my sights on University of Chicago, or if a miracle happens, Harvard. I'll be applying to a lot of schools, but those are my top choice.

Hoping for Harvey Mudd next year. If not, I'll be fine at the state school!

Georgia Tech (I hope) for a three-year pre-med. Of course, the anatomy kid wants to be a doctor.

Well as only a Sophomore, I think I will attend Butler. Yes I know my avatar supports a different school, but that is something of an inside joke. Also, I had a good friend attend Oberlin which is still an option.
Butler just seems the perfect fit to me right now. It's a couple hours from home which is nice, not too far but not too close. Plus I would probably be able to walk on and continue to play football.

People who are familiar with CA, anyone have recommendations for schools to look into besides the obvious(Stanford, USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley). I've been thinking I wanna go to school out west, but I've hovered around a 3.3-3.4 GPA, so I probably won't get into the top schools.
