<p>Thanks alot, I'll chance back</p>

<p>I think you're all set for Clemson definitely, should get an academic scholarship and admission to honors college as well.</p>

<p>Thanks man</p>

<p>GT - match. Ish.</p>

<p>I think you'll be fine at the other two. Can you afford GT out of pocket, or will you need merit aid?</p>

<p>Most likely I will need aid but my familys still well off so can I get it?</p>

<p>You will probably not get need-based aid at GT, being an OOS student.</p>

<p>Georgia</a> Institute of Technology :: Financial Aid :: Scholarships <-- look through this for scholarship information.</p>

<p>The major merit program at GT is the Presidential Scholars program. I don't think you'll get that, honestly, although I could be wrong. Definitely apply, but don't expect anything, and have some schools you know will give you aid.</p>

<p>Other engineering schools are Rose-Hulman, Rensslaer, and Case Western for privates; Purdue, UMich, UIUC, and UT-Austin for publics, although again the OOS publics will not have very much aid to give. If you need a merit aid school, Alabama and Auburn will be very generous. For more reachy schools...Cooper Union, Olin, Harvey Mudd, and of course Stanford, MIT, etc. (Cooper Union is tuition-free; Olin is at half-tuition temporarily due to the recession.)</p>

<p>GT - match
VT - match
NCSU - match
Clemson - in</p>

<p>You should apply to UNC and UVA.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Definitely a match for all. good luck!</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>bump 10char</p>

<p>bump again...</p>

<p>Wow I think you could get in to any of those, and I think they're all matches too.</p>

<p>Help me out :)</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Turns out i scored a 800 math, 740 critical reading, and 780 writing. 1540/2320</p>

<p>I'd say you're in all of them. </p>

<p>You're in NCSU's honors program too, if you can write a semi-decent essay. It's a really good program, I'd suggest looking into it.</p>

<p>^Yes, you have a very good chance at all of them. In fact, if I was you, I would possibly consider them as safeties.</p>

<p>I'm thinking of applying to NCSU as well. Is their application similar to GT's where you apply online (no common app), you enter your own grades in, and you have no teacher/guidance recs?</p>
