Hello everyone! So it is almost that time when I should be picking schools for my freshman year of college, and I am going back and fourth between schools and majors. I have a very strong interest in Aerospace, NASA, and flying in general. Not so much flying for an airline non-stop but just casually and or getting some real science work done up in space. I love computers, electronics, and have been known to hack and crack open a few things for fun such as radios, (FCC Dont read this... FM transmitters) and other things.. But here is my dilemma, I looked at the Aerospace Electronics field and I have pretty strong feelings for it, and I have found that Embry Riddle Aeronautical University is one of the top ranked schools and I was thinking of applying there until I went to the college board and found that my grades and classes were in the upper minority of those who get accepted. I am in the top 3% of my class, have a solid GPA, and I am taking four years of math and science in HS plus a lot more electives and classes than are required for the school. Now I love this school from how it looks and what reviewers have said about it, plus the fact that it has its own airfield.. but, I am worried that it may not be challenging enough for me... So I started looking around at Electronic related majors and top schools. Of course MIT, CIT, Purdue, all came up and I am not 100% sure I could get into those schools, but if I did, I am not sure I would be happy because their focus would not be on aviation or aeronautics like Embry Riddle, but their name could get me a lot more job offers outside of school. But, even though Embry Riddle is not as "known" they are ranked number one in aerospace for the nation... so hence my dilema... which school would I go with... If the above was to long and you did not read: Have you had any experience with the Aerospace Electronics field or Electrical Engineering fields? What were the pro's and con's of those fields? Also, is there anyone here who goes to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University?
