I'd like to do chemical engineering and overall I've got shots at some pretty good engineering schools (Georgia Tech, Michigan, U Minnesota). However, my math skills leave a lot to be desired. For example, my SAT math is a 630 but my overall is 2150. Same with ACT- math 32, overall 34. I've never gotten below a B for each semester in math, but it just doesn't come easily to me like it does for most engineers, and this year's AP Calc is starting to look pretty difficult. Despite all this, I really really want to be a chemical engineer. I shadowed someone in a similar field, and it was great. Do I stand a chance in against the naturally gifted kids at Ga Tech and other places? Im willing to work hard, but I need some assurance that hard work is going to be enough to get a 3.0 or better before I go to an engineering school and fail.
