<p>Also I had a amazing story. I had a 1.7 GPA in high school and brought it up to a 3.0. My GC wrote a realli good letter for me so any ideas?</p>

<p>Can anyone please?</p>

<p>I think you should give the application your all and go for it!</p>

<p>And yes you should send a resume.</p>

<p>Can you give me any information about other schools that id match with and etc?</p>

<p>You can use the ABET search page to find accredited programs-</p>

<p>My biggest concern for you is your EFC, which indicates that your family can't afford a large payment. I think that you really need to be looking at an instate college. For example, if you are a NYS resident, SUNY Buffalo has an excellent accredited engineering program:</p>

<p>Aerospace Engineering(BS)
Chemical Engineering(BS)
Civil Engineering(BS)
Computer Engineering(BS)
Electrical Engineering(BS)
Environmental Engineering(BS)
Industrial Engineering(BS)
Mechanical Engineering(BS)</p>

<p>But also apply to RPI since it is your dream and maybe they will come through with enough Financial Aid (hey you never know).</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>im a tennessee resident but im hoping they'll give me enough were i can get out with less than 60k in loans over 4 years. I heard to use that rule of thumb when accepting loans...</p>

<p>I would NEVER recommend a kid come out of an undergrad program with $60 K in loans. That is insane. You are unlikely to be awarded that high a loan level without a cosigner. I am on my third kid in college and I have never seen, beyond the Stafford and Perkins loans, loans awarded much above that without a cosigner being required. My older S will have a grand total of $30 K in loans - and $5 K of that we had to cosign.</p>

<p>If you live in Tennessee, be sure to apply to some of the Univ. of Tenn. campuses. At less than $6K a year tuition, you can't beat it. The programs are ABET accredited as well.</p>

<p>I appreciate the advise but 60k for Rpi is worth it, barely but I know first hand the oppertunities you get from utc and UT since those schools are where 90% of my class goes and while I'm not putting down those schools I am aiming for better for my self I appreciate the advise but it's not the advise I was asking for...Not to be rude an anyway I like the honest advise</p>

<p>N Im a chatt resident, lived in Knox and by bro graduated from memphis wit a ~4.0 a few years back</p>
