Looking at Colleges; Any Advice?
This being the summer leading into my Senior year, I've begun my college search in earnest. I want to go into either computer science or an as-of-yet unknown form of engineering (I will decide which of the two before I pick a college, but not necessarily which type of engineering) coupled with a Chinese program that includes study abroad and/or internship(s) in China. Being in or near a reasonably sized city is a big plus. I am looking at several schools, but am visiting three while on vacation:DePaul:
The only school I've visited yet. Being in Chicago is really nice. They offer Computer Science
(I haven't really checked to see if it's any good yet) but don't seem to have engineering. They have a strong language program with study abroad
available even during the first year. The set-up of the school year (Trimester during the school year with an extra summer session, as well as a 6-week winter break) makes it easy to double-major. All-in-all, seems like a very good school, if I decide on computer science.
The other two schools are Ohio State
and Indiana University
. Both offer the Chinese Flagship program(OSU
), a really awesome program for learning, well, Chinese, of course. I'll post more info on these school as I visit them in the coming months.
So, do any of you go to these schools or know anyone who does? Does anyone know any other particular schools that I should look at? I'd really appreciate any advice.
