I really love Rose-Hulman, and hope to go into software engineering there, but most of my HS extracurriculars are geared towards community service and marketing. I am above their average SAT/GPA, but does anyone know if they are more wholistic in their review?
Here are my relevant stats/EC’s:
Female applying for software engineering
40/40 Science Cross-Test
W GPA: 4.78/4.0
Took Honors Bio, Chem, and Physics
Took AP Chem (4)
Taking AP Calc and AP Bio this year
I am in every science honors and AP course my school offers
Great Recommendation from my Physics teacher
Co-President and 4-year member of our school math team
Department Award in Science & Technology/Business
Bausch + Lomb Honorary Science Award Recipient
LOTS of impact in my community through service, which might not be as common in RHIT applicants
I will apply for their service scholarship as well, so hopefully I can demonstrate how I see engineering as an opportunity to help others with that essay.
