    It is possible man, just try to increase your SAT score and bring to 2250 or more. And make your SAT subject tests 2400. It is very much possible! And try to improve your ECs.

    Lol, he doesn't need 2250. 2000+ is good enough for Purdue , 2100 to be safe. The rest seems fine. And subject tests aren't important for Purdue.

  • michaelitemichaelite Registered User Posts: 509 Member
    @maneendra296‌ totally upto you....but if your English is slightly weak, the ACT might suit you more.

    @indianstudent96 , I think you'll get into Purdue easily. Illinois is 50-50.

    One of the most important things regarding US uni application is the ability to pay especially for state schools such as Purdue. Applying for FA will hurt your chances at admission. From what I have heard, if applying for FA, admission rate would be lower, but if not submitting FAFSA, you're on par with domestic applicants. I would suggest you guys look at need-blind alternatives whichever they may be.If so SAT scores are of extreme importance (2000 or 2100+). Not sure how that translates to ACT

    All the best guys
