Finalized List, Please Evaluate!


<p>Advice and suggestions would be awesome! For example, my GC suggested that I add a safety school but I don't know which one is worthy because safety schools should be as easy to get into as much as they are attractable.</p>

<h2>Financial Situation: Middle Class, bargain colleges are of high demand</h2>

<p>Field of Major: Engineering</p>

<p>College List:</p>

University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
University of Wisconsin - Madison
University of Texas - Austin
University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

<p>Any other great colleges that I might have a decent/good chance at?</p>

<p>Not sure how much the 5 B's and a C are going to hurt you. At least they were all in the first two years and you've shown that you've improved, which is definitely looked at positively. I think that you have a very good shot at many of them. Cornell, columbia and Northwestern might be more of a reach and I don't know very much about the rest.</p>

<p>I myself don't know what the 5 schools in the middle are considered to be for me. High Match or Low Match or even Reaches?</p>

<p>Can someone please comment on my chances and safety of my list?</p>
