My junior son wants to go into engineering but his grades are not going to get him into any other Engineering programs the everyone has heard of. That's fine with us...He is coming into his own as a student and he wouldn't be ready for that kind of academic experience. I am helping him look for engineering schools or programs that he might be able to get into and I could use some help. He is a B student (GPA likely to be 3.0-3.2 at the end of this year), with practice ACT scores between 28-30 and he continues to work with a tutor and is hoping for a 30 or 31.
I don't know too much about engineering programs. We have found RIT, University of Rochester, Drexel, Bradley University and a few others. What I am having trouble figuring out is what the acceptance rate is for the engineering programs. For example, Purdue has an engineering program that looks fantastic. Their acceptance rate for the school as a whole is something like 54% but what is it for the engineering school. I don't think he would get in there but I would like to know.
I would love to hear from anyone who knows something about lower tier engineering schools/programs that we should look at. Bonus point for schools with a strong Jewish presence AND/OR for programs to support students with ADHD.
Thank you in advance!
