what college/university is good for architect and/or engineer?
I want to start to check college to see what GPA should I work for and the SAT or/and ACT.
Right now as one of my options is NYIT.
When deciding your college election, starting with your career focus is primary and the right first step to narrowing your considerations. However, it is only one of the many costs and preference factors you need to consider that will influence viability and your ability to perform.
How far away am I willing (do I want) to go?
What scholarship and financial aid opportunities are available?
How large of a student population am I looking to integrate into? (Will class sizes be massive or small?)
But most importantly, does this school have other opportunities in the possibility that you wish to branch into other studies and/or a new undergrad program? This is what happened to me, and it was part of my decision process.
I attended the Engineering program at the University of Massachusetts, but after a year found myself lacking passion in the Engineering programs I was attending, while at the same time discovered a great interest in another study that was an elective. Fortunately, my the University had a diverse array of highly accredited schools, and this made the transition seamless.
So know why you're making the choice you're making.
One important piece of advice is to not use the rankings as the end all be all factor in making your decision. The school you select needs to be a good fit for you. There are plenty of good schools that may not be at the top of the rankings but allow you to thrive personally. Visit as many schools as you can, even if they may not be on your list. You may be surprised what preferences you have. Big school, small school, city campus, rural campus, student life, clubs, all these things are important in maximizing your college experience. Make sure you take tours and talk to current students. Ask plenty of questions!
