They are one of the top CompSci schools in the country. I'm probably going to transfer there in a few years. Also, go for a double major, like Math + CompSci because a simple BA in CompSci isn't really preferred. Don't worry about internships yet. Too far ahead of ya.
To be a Pen Tester you will need to be extremely passionate as it is very competitive.

Well, I am thinking about pen testing more in depth because today I was goofing off in my class and happen to get cmd.exe running and from my schools lack of security I was able to view all Administrative files and shut down ever computer selectively or as a whole in the entire school..... It was kinda really fun

If you can, I'd highly recommend squeezing in a business or IS minor. Don't underestimate the value of certifications, either. A lot of people consider them a waste of time and money but potential employers don't, and their opinions matter more than yours.
