What equine degree/college should I pursue?

Ok so I have a few questions: What are some horse careers/jobs that aren’t as well known? What colleges have an emphasis on horsemanship and not just competing/riding? What equine degree is the most general to any horse job (in case I wanna explore different aspects)? Is it okay to go to a college with an emphasis on horses as a slight beginner? I’m definitely not a beginner, but I’m definitely not a horse guru either, so I feel like I’d be behind. . . Right now I’m planning on going to BYU Provo for my required credits than going to a college with an emphasis on horses. . . Is this a good plan? While I’m at BYU should I get a part time job working at a barn? I just want the most experience I can get. Little bit about me if it helps: I’m definitely not the stereotypical cowgirl. I’ve worked at a barn with horses for 4 years, and I have been training this gelding for a bit with my trainer. I have an emphasis on relationship and trust with the horses, bodywork, and training is something I love doing. I’ve never competed, and I’m not sure if I’d be interested in doing so. . . You can tackle any or all questions, thanks for reading!

Which university should I go to? NC state at Raleigh or Cal State, Long Beach?

I'm a international student from Iran and I have been accepted to both NCSU and CSULB and I can't decide which one I should attend :) Cal state is ranked 105 while NC state is 60 among Value schools. Cal state is a lot cheaper though and they offer scholarship for international students after their first semester but NC state doesn't offer many scholarships for international students and I didn't get scholarship anyway :) They both have a good On-Campus employment and also, I know I can be around a well Iranian community in Long Beach. I love Cal state's campus a lot better but NC state offers a very good program in engineering, which is the field I want to study. I'm planning to do double major in engineering and industrial design if I go to CSULB, engineering and politics if I go to NC state. Do you think it worth to sacrifice the prestige and ranking stuff of NC state to go to Long Beach? I feel like my heart is mostly towards Long Beach due to the nice environment and the decent cost; but my mind is more towards NC state as its ranking is better (It's a lot more expensive though). Oh and the last thing, I'm thinking of doing an exchange semester or year in Europe! I will appreciate your honest thoughts and possible experiences :) Thank you for your time to read! :)

What colleges/universities should I apply to?

Hi, I'm a high school junior who's trying to figure out which colleges to apply to in August. I want to major in Mechanical Engineering. I want to go out of state for college and to one that's known for its engineering program. The problem is money. I'm interested in the University of Florida and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign but I don't know if they give good financial aid, especially to a student from out of state. I have 4.0 gpa unweighted, have been taking concurrent enrollment since the ninth grade, will graduate with also graduate high school an associate's of science, and have some pretty alright extracurriculars. I just barely took the ACT, so I don't know my score yet but think it'll be around 29-32. I also qualify for maximum financial aid from the FAFSA. What colleges would be a good fit for me, especially since my financial situation is very bad?

What to choose to have a better career in the states ?

Got into Canadian top unis and Australian top unis Greetings. I got an offer letter from McGill University in Electrical Engineering and Software Engineering (co-op), and again, I got offer letters from UNSW, Monash Australia, and the University of Sydney, too, for a bachelor of engineering! No wonder Australian top universities that are t50 have way lower tuition fees than McGill University alone. As I am planning to do electrical engineering, which university will be really good for better career opportunities in the future? I will be moving to the to the USA after completing my undergrad in Australia or Canada for my Masters and career too! If I go to the top Australian university, which one is really good for electrical engineering?  And most importantly McGill doesn't offer co-ops either! I was planning to choose those just because it has a good reputation in the states.

College classes vs. AP classes?

Ever since I started high school, I always thought taking actual college classes made more sense. However, I’ve begun to wonder if specific selective colleges will look at them differently regarding college applications. I have taken 20 credits at my state university (UMN) and more at my local CC. My school offers multiple AP classes, but I choose college classes because they allow me diverse options of courses each semester. I will graduate from high school with 80+ college credits. Is it possible that I may be at a disadvantage regarding this choice? Will the college review my application and say they want students with AP classes?

I'm a 3rd year CS student and my overall grades for university are disappointing to say the least, and I'm not sure what I should do to progress after I'm done on my course. I don't feel like that grade will be enough to get a good grad job and I'm wondering what can be done to get the foot in the door when it comes to a career which is what I heard really matters.

What are the career prospects for a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction in the USA, considering my background? I hold an MSc in Social Work and a BSc in Psychology of Education.

What are some extracurriculars I could do that is stem/medicine based?

I’ve had a lot of ideas on what Extracurriculars I want to do but they just seem too much for me to accomplish as a 16 year old. Some ideas I had was formulating an eco friendly sunscreen using chemistry principals but I would assume you need to have a degree in chemistry. Another idea was creating a skin cancer detecting app, or starting a program by going around to different schools, and/or community centers providing information on skin cancer and hosting events with the help of volunteers from my school. Honestly this all just seems really complicated for me to do especially without a mentor. I plan to start volunteering at a kidney center next month and get a part time job on the weekends. At the moment I am applying to stem/medicine based internships. I need some advice. I am 16 and in 10th grade. I plan to major in chemistry and I aspire to be a dermatologist.

Do you think it is worth doing the IB program to get into a top 20 school?

I selected my classes for next year and chose to do the IB program. I am starting to regret that choice. I would rather do partial IB. Do you think It’ll look bad if I drop out of the IB program to do partial IB? My goal is to get into a top 20 school. Also my school is an IB school so they do not offer AP classes. I am currently in 10th grade.

Can I work on independent research while not being a high school student?

My country’s academic system is different than the US. So, I have already graduated and I’m 18 still not in university, but I really want to do an independent research project and try to get it published somewhere. Is it possible or legitimate for me to do it on my own without teachers or help and use this project as an activity for my college application? It’s actually a passion project and not to make my application look good, however, I have seen that most of these are done with mentors and such and I don’t have one available and I am unsure on where and how I could find one. I wouldn’t need a lab because it’s for a psychology social research, I would just need people to answer a few questions I would formulate on a form and I would go from there.
