Chance at A&M?

<p>SAT score: 1950 (retesting. Probably a 2100-2300)
CR:670 M:630 W:650</p>

<p>ACT: N/A (testing in September, aiming for 30+)
AP Scores: Apush:5, AP English Lit:4, AP Spanish Lit:5
Senior AP Courses: AP Gov, AP English Lit, AP calculus ab(maybe bc), AP Spanish Lit, AP physics b)
Top 10% (36/700 or so last year, AP probably in the 10-20s this year)
GPA: ~3.2-3.3/4</p>

<p>Prospective career paths: Aviation, Business, Law, Nuclear Engineer, History, and Military Weapons Development.</p>

<p>ECs: marching band, symphonic band, soccer, Spanish honor society, and not much else.</p>

<p>Leadership and Accomplishments: Sousaphone section leader, JV soccer, 1 of 2 5s for APUSh, first I think in the school's history (lol, and first because I finished a little early), 1 in tuba/baritone quartet for solo & ensemble</p>

<p>Other info: Mexican born, Undocumented alien (came at the age of 7), have lived in Houston Texas for 8 years now, and family income at around $36,000. Qualify for in-state tuition.</p>

<p>With top 10% you should be an auto admit, I myself was top 11% with a SAT of 1800 and made it in.</p>

<p>On a side note, not sure how the undocumented part will work out, especially for FAFSA</p>

<p>If you really want to be an aggie, and you set your mind for it, there is no need to ask for ''chancing''. Either way, you are going to be an aggie, there are many pathways that lead to College Station.
Everything will be just fine.</p>

<p>We have to do TAFSA, for we can not apply for federal aid, only state and college.
I hope I do make it and get a decent amount of money. I don't want to go to a community college for lack of funds, such as my brother. I hear the transfer eaters after a 2 year cc are not that great </p>

<p>My friend scored a 31 on the ACT and got a full ride.</p>

<p>Really?? Man that is sweet. Whenever A&M went to my school, it said a 1300 and above for CR+M was a full ride. But I don't know if that is true, especially with my dilemma.</p>

<p>It won't be a full ride. I got a 1350 (700 Math, 650 Reading) and didn't get anything except automatic admission. You might get scholarships, but even that might be a stretch.</p>

<p>Is it really that easy for illegal aliens to enter A&M? Don't they need a social security number? How does that work?</p>

<p>Not quite sure, have you tried looking at the ApplyTexas application system? If you make it through that, and apply to A&M, you can see your process through the AIS (basically the school's processing page) to check whether you get through or are denied on the grounds of being undocumented</p>

<p>In any case, it's never too late to apply for citizenship, you do appear to qualify for it! </p>

<p>Hopefully article is relevant for you, as it mentions Texas and aid for illegal aliens: FinAid</a> | Other Types of Aid | Scholarships for Undocumented Students</p>

<p>Ahh, well that sucks. I was really hoping to 1up all of my peers haha. Guess ill have to work harder to get a 1400+ and lots of scholarships.</p>

<p>There is a law allowing foreign nationals living in Texas, under certain conditions, to attend college with in-state tuition rates.</p>

<p>Thanks for the link, ill certainly give it a look when I get on my laptop. </p>
