I think the best way to approach college is take the minimum you can to stay full time (in the states 12 hours a semester) That way you don't get overwhelmed in that drama, and still have time to do your own personal explorations in Max/Ableton, etc... and have time to network/meet people.

Keyboard magazine is a decent magazine. I wouldn't expect them to scam you. I think they must be getting most their money from advertising, since the subscription cost is $1 per issue. If you want to learn the keyboard they have the best transcriptions. Everything from old funk players to tori amos ...
