Would I be looked down upon for majoring in physics rather than engineering?

My school was visited by a recruiter for a college, but they only have Physics. I know this school would fit me well, and it would be relatively inexpensive, but I don't want to not be hired due to my major being physics rather than a specific type of engineering. #engineering #college-major...

What are the best value colleges for an engineering degree?

I'd like to go to a good school for engineering (it doesn't have to be the best) and spend the least amount of money possible. What good schools are also affordable? Which ones are most likely to give me (a woman interested in aerospace engineering) the most scholarship money? #college #engineering

What are the pros and cons of the SAT and the ACT weighed against each other?

I believe that majority of universities and colleges accept both the SAT and the ACT but what are the differences between them? I also don't know which one would probably yield a higher score for me...should I take both and see? #sat #act #test-planning #cons #pros #high-school-tests

As a Computer Science Major (or any CS related major) who has no prior work or internship experience, what do you suggest I do to get a programming job or internship?

As the question states, I am a CS major who has little experience and has only done a few side projects that were not too advanced (in web dev and basic networking principles). I am trying to get an internship and I have been sending out resumes and going to career fairs, but most companies...
