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.

Meteorology will be helpful for a pilot for sure, but keep in mind that most meteorology jobs require at least a Masters (or so my recent meteorology grad friend tells me).

I've heard the same about OU. Iowa State University has a great program too.

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.

Ou has one of the best programs in the country for meterology, plus if you like to storm chase this is a great place to be during storm season
