Chances for Engineering(CoE) OoS

<p>I applied into Engineering for Civil Engineering... I'm so nervous for Dec. 11.</p>

<p>SAT: 670 CR 700 W 750 M
8 AP's taken through high school</p>

<p>3.4 UW / 3.9 W GPA</p>

<p>Very Rigorous coursework taken. My school is a Project Lead The Way school, and i've completed all of the PLTW curriculum.</p>

<p>Excellent EC's, Class President for 3 years, 4 Varsity letters in Football and Lacrosse, leadership position in Engineering</p>

<p>I also have held a part-time job all through junior and senior year, 26 hours a week except when i'm in season</p>

<p>I don't think it's considered at UofI at all, but i'm a legacy(grandfather, 3 uncles, dad, all CoE)</p>

<p>Unfortunately, i'm a white out-of-state male from MD(probably the worst possible demographic :( )</p>

<p>What do you guys think about my chances? I've already been accepted into CoE at Rutgers and Pitt</p>

<p>Match. You'll most likely get admitted to program of choice, but if not, general engineering.</p>

<p>sorry to be a pest, but could anyone else chance me? I'm nervous for the 11th...</p>

<p>Actually, you don't list your class rank. That is a critical factor in the admissions process. The middle 50% of engineering students were in the top 2-8% of their class.</p>

<p>KDlax-Actually they do consider legacies..I don't know how much but at orientation they did mention it. It is somewhere on the application. Also, you should look into a scholarship opportunity through the Alumni Association in Maryland. You can google it and find the Association and go from there. You may also get something in the mail...once you are admitted of course. You look good by the way! Good luck!</p>

<p>my class rank is somewhere around top 20%... does this make me an automatic no?</p>

<p>Not an auto no, but the middle 50% of engineering students were in the top 2-8% of their class last year with an act of 30-33. You have the class rigor, and the standardized test scores to get in, but class rank is very important too. You will want to ace the essays, and hopefully the GPA shows an upward trend. I'd say slight reach with the HSPR, but you'll get admitted, just maybe not directly to engineering. But then you'll get a chance to transfer in, and you'll still be able to take the same classes the engineering freshmen do.</p>
