<p>Good for all of them.</p>


<p>bump bump bump</p>

<p>please guys, any help would be great</p>

<p>your forensics background and research project + chess look good.</p>

<p>I don't know why. Oh shi-- I think chess has a tangible subconscious effect on my opinion of you, combined with your other ECs.</p>

<p>But your rank is unspectacular, of course. Also, your APs, ACT, and SAT aren't super.</p>

<p>Make sure you raise your SAT. Please. For the sake of your chances.
I think you look pretty good, but seeing as how your second weakest spot is your SAT score, and the fact that it's a one-off easy to raise number, just do it. Also:
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>And write write write for the essay.</p>


<p>bump bump bump</p>

<p>For the love of God... could some people please post my chances for those four universities (keeping in mind I want to get into their engieering schools). Sorry if I am being anal, I'm just really nervous</p>

<p>For the love of God, could you please stop bumping? Really</p>

<p>Michigan - huge reach (very low SATs, low GPA, low rank)
Penn State - match
Wisconsin - Madison (?) - high match/reach (low SATs, low GPA, low rank0
Purdue for Engineering - high match</p>

<p>bump bump bump.... thanks for those who have given input</p>

<p>U'll get into purdue....</p>

<p>who gets rejected at purdue?</p>


<p>I know I will get into Purdue. I am just nervous that I won't get into the engineering school, and that I will be placed in my alternate school, the "College of Science"</p>

<p>oh ok...........</p>



<p>Just got accepted to Purdue. :)</p>

<p>As a result, I am not going to apply to Wisconsin or Penn St. (I like Purdue more)</p>
