I am thinking about what colleges to go to. I am a "B" average student, in or have completed a few AP classes ( AP C. Sci AB, AP Calc BC, AP Physics B). I am really interested in Engineering, physics and mathematics. What schools are best for these that I could get into? I would say the only thing that would set me apart is that I am in 200-level Computer Science classes at the university in my town and I am taking Calculus 3, Linear Algebra and Diff Eq. I would like to go into Computer Engineering, but at the same time go into Mathematics or Theoretical Physics, whats the advice on that? I also goto a very competitive college prep high school. Again, I'm about a B average, geeky, top 10-15 percent in class. What schools do you think will be best?

I'd say you'd have a shot at Rice, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Harvey Mudd and Carnegie-Mellon - all of which are strong in mathematics and engineering. Try to stay in the top 10% of your class - colleges calculate the percentage of their students who are in the top 10%.
Reed College is very strong in pure physics and mathematics and you'd probably be admitted (assuming a 1300+ SAT).
