Engineering Graduate school admissions
I am an international student with the following stats.
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Research experience: a year and a half of experience working with countries abroad and within the US.
Activities: 1). An active leader in a number of clubs on campus.
2). Culturally very active in various programs
3). A lot of volunteer work for community service.
4). Also was highly active in high school.
Achievements: won a couple of scholarships and awards.
I will be graduating in a years time and i was hoping to raise my gpa to at least a 3.5 by the time i graduate. I wanted to apply for graduate school however, i was not sure which schools would take me. What do you think are my chances at getting into the following schools.
University of Illinois, Urbana Campaign
University of Southern California
California Institute of technology.
I was also wondering should i wait for a year until my gpa was high enough to apply to these schools?
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
