    Apply, but know going in that your SAT score would not be competitive at those elite universities. Also, what do you plan to do with your aerospace degree? For most US companies, you would need a security clearance and that is extremely difficult if you are not a US citizen.
    When you complete your education at an American university, it is expected that you return to your home country; immigration is difficult and almost impossible.

    1350 SAT is average for engineering at schools like Arizona State, Central Florida, Virginia Polytechnic.
