mrclueless is on a distinguished road
Hi Everyone,

I'm an undergraduate student at RPI studying Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering. I have a 3.8 GPA and I have managed to skip a year and graduate in three years. That being so, I really want to have 4 years of college and get a Master's. Although I was planning to do co-terminal as my last year to get a Master's, my advisor told me that I should look for other grad school because RPI may not offer me the best financial package which is important because my EFC is 0 from FAFSA. Unfortunately, as I was looking at grad school, I am afraid that I have may overlooked other schools that does not appear in the rankings from like US News and my advisor is very hard to contact. My interest is definitely in CFD but I'm still wavering over aerodynamics and space dynamics.

My questions are: 1) How do I choose a graduate school for aerospace?
2) Which graduate school do you recommend if I am doing CFD?
3) What are the most important things that I need to start working from now to December or the deadline?
4) I am doing undergraduate research for a professor at RPI that involves CFD and he would like me to stay at RPI for master's- it is better that I continue with RPI?
5) How hard is it to get a fellowship?

I want to say thanks to anyone who responds to this.
