What state do you live in? Do you need to go in state or are you looking out of state? What is your financial situation, paying for it all yourself while working full time, free ride from the college on scholarship, or are you a trust fund baby? What else are you looking to get out of your college experience? Are you looking to go 4 year all the way or start at a community college first? I highly recommend this route to most people because it saves tons of money and you get the same education.

I don't know specifics about which colleges are the best in which fields but I can give a little advice on the other stuff.

Amy is very correct with starting out at a JC (junior college). You might want to wipe out your general classes at a JC then transfer when you start core classes. You will save thousands of dollars!...Trust me! Good luck!!

for your major, community college might be the best route because I think you can get a degree in 2 years...I kind of have to go 4 years because 3.5 years are full of work for my major....If you don't mind me asking, what year are you in school, and what are your grades like, because if you want a 4 year university, they have certain requirements to get in...and have you taken the act yet?

Thats what I am on the verge of doing as well. Just remember that you need to make sure your general classes will transfer to the major university for your last 2 years. Otherwise you will have to retake those classes all over again.

LOL. If he couldn't find those on his own, I doubt he'd be ready for college. I'm sure your heart was in the right place though.
