I'm going into biochem because of Protein Modeling. I also considered astrophysics for a while because of Astronomy.

Science Olympiad itself is the reason I'm majoring in science.

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

It looks like my primary major will be Geophysical Sciences, and I'm either double majoring in Chemistry or Biological Sciences (Ecology & Evolution). Although a minor in Cinema and Media Studies is not out of the question.

Alright time to revive this.

I'll be (almost certainly) going to University of Massachusetts-Amherst in the fall, studying Astrophysics.

Good choice! :) Maybe we'll see each other at a conference one day!

Your post here had me read through all 34 pages of this thread and now I'm really curious where all these past middle schoolers actually ended up going to college

We'll be seeing you at MIT next year then?

I think there are 1 or 2 other college threads on here too, if you want to waste some more time.

Lucky for me those threads aren't nearly as long as this one. Senior year has really driven me college-crazy, especially now before decisions come out in March/April.

These were the ones you were talking about right?

Maybe; depends on my free time and how much I'll still be involved with Scioly. I definitely plan to right now though :)

I'm gonna be honest, after reading this thread, I never wanted to open a scioly.org college thread again, so I haven't looked through those, but they probably are what I was referring to. I wasted a lot of time at the beginning of the year reading through old General Chat threads(but to be fair, it was before we got the rules for this season so I wasn't wasting valuable time).
