Yeah... so, I have basically finished all of my College Applications and thought it would be interesting to see where all of the other current Seniors are applying and to let everyone know what I am considering.

I plan on majoring in Computer Science, but here are the schools I am applying to:

Case Western Reserve University - Accepted on December 15th, 2009
Carnegie Mellon University - Notification of Admission on April 15th, 2010
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - Notification of Admission on March 14th, 2010
Vanderbilt University - Notification of Admission on April 1st, 2010
University of Central Florida(Burnett Honors College) - Accepted(Accepted - Rolling Admissions)


Green = Accepted
Orange = Application Submitted
Red = Application Not Submitted Yet


And for much later in the year when everyone makes decisions...
Cyan = Enrolling

Also, since I am not shy about my information(although it is only slightly relevant)...

SAT Scores:
Critical Reading - 710
Mathematics - 760
Writing - 660

SAT II Subject Tests Scores:
Mathematics II - 790
Physics - 720

ACT Scores:
Composite - 30
English/Writing - 30
Mathematics - 32
Reading - 28
Science - 29

I know it's been quite a while since I posted, but hopefully I'll be back to posting more regularly.

I plan on majoring in some form of engineering, not a clue which one yet.
So, I've just finished my round of early applications, just two schools:

MIT
Georgia Tech


I plan to apply to:
Carnegie Mellon
Harvard
Cornell


And among other schools on my list that I might apply to:

Cal Tech
WPI
Johns Hopkins


There are others too.

And following suit, testing scores:

SAT Scores:
Critical Reading - 740
Mathematics - 780
Writing - 770

SAT II Subject Tests Scores:
Mathematics I - 800
Mathematics II - 800
Physics - 780

ACT Scores:
Composite - 34
English - 35
Mathematics - 34
Reading - 29
Science - 36
Combined English/Writing - 32

finally, I suggest that we switch enrolling from
dark blue to blue or cyan because I find reading the dark blue to be difficult

MIT, Case Western or CMU will be your best choices for computer science and or Engineering with a programming background.
Pittsburgh (CMU) is starting to become a hub for robotics and computer engineering.

if any of you have any questions about cmu, i'd be glad to answer them.

My GPA wasn't too impressive (~3.58) but I had lots of extracurriculars and high test scores...
