    According to their Data Digest, last year’s engineering entry class had an SAT average of 1414, a GPA of 3.79 and a core GPA of 3.74.

    The data looks a bit wonky, but it appears that the GPA 25th percentile was in the 3.6 to 3.7 range.

    What was your course rigor - number of honors and AP courses? A typical weighting of .5 for honors and 1 for AP would indicate a somewhat low number of these, but there are so many weighting schemes it’s hard to tell.

    With this assumption, I’d say it’s a bit of a reach, but not out of the question. You’ll need strong EC, essays, recs, etc.

    Good luck!

    Last year, I took 1 AP course (AP Physics 1) and 3 honors (PreCalc H, Spanish III H, and US History II H), and I got a 4 on the AP Physics 1 exam.

    This year, I am taking 5 APs (AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB, AP Physics C, AP Statistics, and AP Principles of CompSci) and 1 honors course (English H)

    I was at an information session in North Jersey last year. Your overall GPA is really not that important. Grades in Science and Math are what really matters, and how tough those classes are. I hope you applied early, was told that was really important for engineering.

    @volty123 - This is the first cycle that Purdue has deferred a large number of applicants so I think it's going to be hard to predict.

    That said, I would think that you'll be accepted, especially as an instate applicant. The only red flag I see is your english sub-score but everything else is great.

    If Purdue is accepting midterm reports, have your GC counselor send it along with any new awards or accomplishments that have happened since you sent in your application.
