New to this forum but I feel like this thread will help me narrow down on what I should do next.
I just got accepted to the University of Illinois - @ Champaign. The problem is I really wanted to get in to the Engineering Program but got a Technical Systems Management Program instead (College of ACES). I'm definitely going for sure, but I still want to try to get in Engineering because if anyone knows its probably one of the best in the country.
Does anyone know if I can go undeclared major my first semester and try to reapply for the spring semester? I kind of want to go this route because I don't want to major in TSM but if I have to then I guess I will.
Also, if I do go in to TSM I will start off as a sophomore instead of a freshman because I have transfer credit hours in TSM. The reason why I have credit hours in this is because I just got out of the Air Force and there wasn't that much variety when it came to majoring in anything. I just wanted to take core classes but I had to declare a degree. So I don't really care about the money because its free.
Opinions on if I should just major in TSM or reapply for engineering?
