I am Indian . I intend to come to the US for higher education . I dream of studying at universities such as Stanford/UC-Berkley/UCLA for my undergrad but my grades and my especially my SAT score are not sufficient to get into these universities. My list now includes ASU (and Barrett's) which is a decent university for engineering . I want to know more about the university and especially about Barrett's. What are the facilities they provide to engineering students , how is the quality of education ? , how are the internships ?. What kind of a job I would get if I graduate from ASU ? and what kind of graduate admissions am i looking at ? (can I get into Stanford at least for my Graduate degree) , Finally , What will I be missing out on ?
I wanted to know my chances at ASU and Barret's and what else I would require in order to gain admission into both as an international freshman.
I know it is advised not to enter a college with a mind of transferring to other universities but I want to like ASU and make the most of it . I will try to transfer to my dream schools though.
It would be helpful of you people to suggest universities for me.
