  • Re: Engineering School Chances?

    However, Clemson is a pretty good engineering school. While it doesn't rival Georgia Tech, it still has many good engineering programs. In fact, I think Clemson's engineering program is better than Duke, Brown, and Vanderbilt's.
  • Re: Engineering School Chances?

    Your chances for in-state are solid. However, your SAT score is a tad lower than the average for the USC Honors College which is a 1430. However, its gonna be difficult to get admission out-of-state. Your SAT score is lower than the average for all of these schools except NC State. You might wanna improve your SAT Score to a 1450 or maybe even a 1500 to boost your chances. Your ec's are decent. However, you might have wanted to add more engineering related extra-curriculars. Maybe join a robotics or try to intern at a local engineering company.

    @RamDass You know tuition doesn't affect acceptance rates. Students still have to get accepted into SUNY Binghamton in order to attend the college. I know you might reply that more accepted students will attend Binghamton who previously could not afford it but that's only a small number of students. Also, Governor Cuomo's bill only covers tuition; students still have to pay for room and board. As a result, cost will still be a factor.
