Hey everyone, I've been thinking a lot about colleges lately and I've so far narrowed it down to a couple of colleges and was looking for some input.
Basically what I've picked out is MIT, Waterloo (in Canada), RIT, and a couple other smaller tech colleges around the US and Canada.
and btw, in case you are wondering, I believe i've got a 3.6 or 3.7 or something like that, so there's a chance I won't get accepted in to either of the colleges, but I'm hoping that my extra-curricular stuff and some of the projects i've done in the past will make up for that somewhat
I'm looking for a computer science degree so I can work with software design and most likely work with applications, or really whatever gets me working with software. I always wanted to do game design, but it's seeming more and more that game design is a very stressful job and I recently read in a report from IGDA that they published a little while back about the "Quality of Life" of a game developer, and it basically said that it sucks :)
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to make games and stuff, I just don't want to get burned out right away in my programming career.
So yah, I'm going to be a senior in high school this next year, and I was mainly wondering which would be better, MIT or Waterloo? I've heard lots of great things about each of them, and I'm not even sure if they'll accept me yet, I'm just wondering which one I should focus on more, if at all....
Thanks for any input, and if I said anything stupid in this post, just forget I said it, heh.
