Chances of me in Texas A&M?

<p>Hi, I'm a Year 11 student currently enrolled in an IB curriculum-based school. I will be moving to Texas on February 2014 and will enroll in an AP curriculum-based school. I'm interested in taking the undergraduate major for Petroleum Engineering in Texas A&M. So can someone please estimate the chances of me getting accepted there? </p>

<p>Also, my math isn't my strongest subject - but when I actually study I'm pretty good. I just don't process math as fast as some of the smarter kids do. Will this affect me in university? </p>

<p>Plus, does the undergraduate major in PE require me to take the SAT Subject Test for Math? Is it hard to get into? Thanks. </p>

<p>SAT - 2090</p>

<p>CR: 720
Math: 690
Writing: 680</p>


<p>My school doesn't rank, but I asked them to give me a ranking and they told me that based on my grades from Year 9 until now - I am placed in the top 25% of the class. </p>

<p>I'm not sure about how the ranking process goes in America - do they rank your grades from the 9th grade or just from the 11th grade? I didn't know which one it was so they gave me the ranking based on my grades from the 9th grade until now. </p>

<p>Other Accomplishments:
- Skipped a grade (7th grade)
- On a partial scholarship with my current school (half-paid)
- Currently taking 4 High-Level classes (instead of the allowed 3 High-Level classes)
- Accomplished more than 50 hours of Community & Service</p>

<p>Clubs/Extra-Curriculars that I'm taking part in:
- Been on Varsity Volleyball for 2 years
- Saman Dance (Indonesian Cultural Dance)
- Model United Nations
- Flea Market Committee
- Grade Level Assembly Committee
- Debate Club</p>

<p>I didn't do too well this semester because it is my first year of taking the IB Diploma Program and it was a hard transition for me from the MYP, but since I'm doing better now I think I can achieve better grades than this semester so I might be in the top 20% next semester. </p>

<p>Whew! Sorry for the long post!</p>

<p>Ok in Texas, we have autoadmmit (not sure if you knew that already). TAMU is top 10 percent and since you are about 25% it will be mucher harder for you to get admitted since TAMU has one of the best engineering schools especially petroleum in the US. HOWEVER, don’t let that discourage you! They have a very high admit rate though it can still be competitive. Also you should get some slack since you just moved and you might be considered an international applicant. Hope this helps good luck!</p>

<p>Good news! Texas A&M will actually calcuate rank for you. If you don’t have enough credits at your new high school, to get a school rank, they’ll figure it out. Rank for TX schools is usually from grade 9. You skipped a year so you just have to make sure you have the required high school credits to graduate. Your SAT score qualifies you for auto acadmic admit.</p>

<p>@JAMCAFE All righty then, thanks! I have another question - does the PE major in A&M require any specific AP classes to be taken in high school?</p>
