First, I hope I am posting this in the correct section. Anyhow, onto the main topic of this post. In the next 4-6 months, I will have to send in my college applications. As of now, I am planning on getting a bachelor's in some engineering field, but exactly what specialty is currently undecided. So this leads me to my first question: which engineering specialty offers the best opportunities in consulting? And secondly which colleges should I apply to? I live in Texas, and currently Texas A&M is my one, true "safety" school. I have a 30 ACT, so schools like University of Texas and Georgia Tech are definitely possible contenders, but what others should I try applying to (please don't suggest any Ivies/Stanford/MIT because lets be real, those are out of my reach at this point due to grades/test scores)?
Many thanks for any advice
