What should I do? Study abroad, co-op, internship, or stay at school?
Alright, looking to get a little feedback from some people that have had similar experiences. Assuming everything goes to plan, I will have the option to do a co-op (spring+summer) or summer internship with GE, a co-op with Hamilton Sundstrand (a United Technologies Corporation subsidiary), or study abroad in Australia at Swinburne University of Technology. I also obviously have the option to stay at my current college, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
I'm currently a first semester sophomore, but I'm technically more than a semester ahead credit wise. A co-op would be a good way to slow down and graduate at the regular time and make some money too, not to mention the job experience. The summer internship would be a great option if I decided to go to Australia so that I could do both.
So what do you guys think? Co-op, study abroad, internship, or stay at RPI?

This is indeed a difficult choice to make. It depends on many factors and that makes it tough for an advice from outside. For the experience, I think I would go to Australia (to see a new country and people, etc). If you have a girlfriend in the US... that makes it more complicated. Plus, there are many other factors that come into play. I don't know, I think I would try a bit of adventure and change of scenery and go to Australia.
