Of course college is all about that little piece of paper just like high school. Except now you get to focus on what you want, while wading through the BS.
Me I'm taking a different route by getting my IT certifications and then getting into the industry, that way if they want me to go to college they'll send me and pay for it (yes they do that :D) just for those classes and none of the crud on the side.
All I can say is good luck to you in college, don't lose who you are in trying to accomplish! :)
I have to disagree on PE and electives being useless. Regarding music and math: Our results show that intensive music training is associated with improved performance in the core mathematical system for representing abstract geometry. Controlling for an array of other variables (such as IQ, academic performance, social and economic factors), we found that intensively music-trained students outperformed students with little or no music training at detecting geometric properties of visual forms, relating Euclidean distance to numerical magnitude, and using geometric relationships between forms on a map to locate objects in a larger spatial layout....
Our findings are consistent with recent studies that suggest that sequences of tones spontaneously activate representations of space in the brain. We are now beginning to use behavioral and brain imaging methods to explore the nature and development of this relationship in infants and young children.
