Okay so we all know application season is coming quick and I would like all of your opinions on which colleges I can get accepted into. I havent set in stone where I am applynig yet but I have made a rough list of possibilities.
Northwestern (i would be legacy since my grandfather attended :P)
Purdue (just applied today)
Stevens institute of technology
Suggest more for me please ( I want to go into comp. engineering )
So I will ist my stats below and I would greatly appreciate if you could rank these schools (reach, match, safety) and narrow my choices down a bit ( and also save my hands from all of these essays ).
Unweighted GPA: 4.0
Weighted GPA: My school does not do this?
SAT: 1930 (650 W, 680 M, 600 R :/ ) --> I get my new scores Monday, hoping for a 2000 or better.
Class Rank: 1/400-ish
AP Classes: AP US History (4), AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP Literature, AP European History.
Of which im taking this (Senior) year:
AP Calc BC
