I think I want to major in meteorology / atmospheric science (What is the difference?) and get my flight training on the side. Do you know of some colleges with good science departments? I was looking at OU and heard that it has a really good meteorology program.
Iowa State has a good program and very interesting professors in the department. Rates for aircraft/training at the local FBO are pretty good compared to other areas of the country. If you have any questions about Meteorology or ISU, just ask.
