<p>Hi everyone :-) I'm currently a rising senior.
Would any of you please chance me? What I'm really looking for is for someone to tell me whether Purdue is a reach, match, or safety; whether I can get into the Honors program; and whether I have a good chance at getting scholarships and financial aid-- this is especially important because realistically, my parents will not be able to help at all with college tuition. </p>
<p>I want to major in Electrical Engineering.</p>
<p>My GPA is UW 3.79 and W ~4.5. I scored a 1910 on the SAT, though I just took it again last Saturday. I'm not sure what I scored, but I think I raised my superscore above 2000. My scores from March were:
<p>I'm in the top 7% of my class.</p>
<p>I'm currently taking AP Calc AB and AP English Language, and I'm scheduled to take AP Chemistry, AP Calculus BC, AP French, and AP Music Theory next year. All of my other classes have been honors.</p>
<p>Okay, The real kicker is my extracurriculars. They are EXTREMELY weak...</p>

Yeah. Nothing :/ I moved schools in between my freshman and sophomore year, so I was kinda out of the loop and unmotivated Sophomore year.</p>

<p>I realize that my GPA and SAT scores are on par for both schools, but as I said, I have very weak extracurriculars. I'm also out of state from North Carolina.
If you feel that these schools may be a reach for me, would you mind recommending other colleges for me (preferably that are similar to Purdue)??
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!</p>
