*conditionally accepted...they want me to do all the core mandatory non engineering classes like English composition at any other university in the world (England...along with my possible internship...now it might be a year long internship, not just the summer)...and as long as I get a 3.0 GPA I am automatically accepted into Georgia Tech...The good part is I will be done with all the bull crap classes and will be able to dive into all the good engineering classes and not have to worry about any non engineering classes

They are writing the contract up right now so I can sign it once I get it in the mail

The other good thing about this is that I have a year that I can stay in Miami where I can race karts, race another series like Skip Barber or Fram-Am, or stay a whole year in England and do the internship and the classes over their!!! Not to mention I can track the hell out of my car !!!!

Oh by the way…i'm going to study Mechanical Engineering


Sorry if it bothers you that I posted this.....I just had to share the joy with some of my friends !!!!!

school is important and life changing. I hated math and went to medical school instead, but I've often wished I'd become an engineer. Believe it or not, the bullcrap stuff is important ,too! You should become well rounded and not become a narrow technician.

perish the thought, but you one day you may get tired of being an engineer. engineering minds are also good for business, i'm sure...

in the first few years of working i've found that technology is rarely the problem when it comes to companies... it's always business problems and management problems. being an engineer, sometimes it's tough watching business problems ruin the promise of your hard engineering work. so keep the option open to shake up the business side of things =)<br>

You meet girls in those non technical classes.

Once you get into upper level engineering class, you find smelly guys sitting next to you in lectures.. hahaha.

I'm from Coral Springs, FL, not too far from you. I'm a second year in Building Construction, a minority major on campus. Mechanical Engineering is very popular, many of my friends have chosen it. I do not know if you have credit for the Calc courses, but they are pretty tough weed out courses, as are many of the classes you will take your first two years. While my first year was rough and it isn't the most exciting campus by far, it was the best academic decision I have made. E-mail me if you'd like to know more about Tech.

Don't simply punt the non-engineering classes, though - you'll need them later to help out your GPA ;-P (Take classes like Econ where your Engineering math will let you kick all those non-math folks' butts!)

Since you already know you want to be a Mech E., it's going to be a LOT more fun! If you're not already at differential equations, you may want to jump-start the calculus classes while you're taking those other classes. All the really fun engineering (fluids, dynamics) uses diff eqs, so as much background/understanding you can build beforehand helps!

Good luck, and congrats again!
