don't about cars
get a business admin minor (if you can't run your own business, you'll never get rich)
when you do research projects, go ******* crazy on them. I came out of undergrad with 2-publishings, and when you can throw those on a resume you have a much better chance.
Take a career path you enjoy. I don't make much money, but what I do every day at work can't be measured in dollars because life on earth is about roles in society. Are you going to be a wage earner, or are you going to be a part of something bigger than yourself? Some people close million dollar deals with huge corporations on the other side of the world. Over the last 3-months I've secured and apropriated a few million in funding to buy houses and land that floods so people can move somewhere that it doesn't. That's what makes my $54k in student loans worth it (sometimes).
Sorry about the diatribe. I realized stuff like this after school. If I would have made this connection sooner, I'd be in a 3rd world country right now doing some of the things I wrote about in my last 2-semesters. However, that's what grad school is for.

Concentrate on getting as much *** as possible. Stay away from engineering females, they are...strange, for the most part. I found an awesome one that I ended up marrying but that's extremely rare.

I'm a Pitt alum, its a *very* fun school so be careful how you spend your time lol. I'm going to be installing a bunch of fun parts on my car in the next few months if you want to lend a hand and get your Miata fix in: Tein Flex, Begi S1 kit, Hard Dog bar, and other misc stuff.

Oh and we use the preformance electronics ECU with the CBR 600 RR engine well have this year. Im going to be one of the heads of the tuning thanks to my experence with MS =).

The ECU actually looks pretty simple, similar to the MS just without idle and ac control. The fuel map uses actual ms pulses in the table unlike ms, but it is quite similar.
