Goal: Aerospace or mechanical engineering online masters programs at the following schools:
Purdue, Georgia Tech, UOI Urbana, Texas A&M, UT Austin, Penn State
Company is paying for most of my education
Because I’m not requesting any money (financial aid) from these schools, I expect them to be less picky for me especially because I’ll be an online applicant (distance learning). Is this misguided?
Undergraduate school: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute GPA: 3.95/4.0
1 year of undergraduate research related to Aerospace engineering (no paper)
2 summer internships @ GE Aviation
Currently engineer at Raytheon
GRE: 162Q 165V writing TBD (just took the test today)
Extracurriculars: chief engineer for Design Build Fly (airplane design competition), president of Sigma Gamma Tau (academic aero eng honor society), school newspaper, and various volunteering activities.
I’ve already asked 3 professors to write me recommendations, which they’ve agreed to.
