Safety schools for Engineering / Computer science

<p>Hey, I'm a junior right now. Just looking for some safety schools for Engineering and Computer Science majors because those are the two I was thinking of going into. I really like math and science.</p>

-4.431 weighted
-3.96 Unweighted
Class Rank: 13/491
State: MO
ACT composite: 32
ACT writing: 7 (Planning on taking again to bring at least this up)
-Tennis will play for 4 years, made Varsity Sophomore year
-Robotics, joined Sophomore year. Will participate for the rest of my high school career.
-National Honors Society
-Cross Country Freshman and sophomore year (didn't enjoy it anymore and didn't want to struggle through something I didn't like just to look slightly better to colleges)</p>

<p>So yeah, I would appreciate any recommendations on schools. They don't have to be safety schools but I've got a good amount of top schools picked out so far.</p>

<p>Any recommendations on things I should work on to increase my chances would be appreciated. Thanks!</p>

<p>I haven't taken the SAT yet but I plan on doing so.</p>

<p>I hope you have Mizzou on your list. Look at the midwest cooperative schools. MHEC</a> : MSEP Participating Institutions (52)</p>

<p>Case Western Reserve University</p>

<p>As a safety, Rochester Institute of Technology (NY) known as RIT.</p>

<p>Well I've wondered about Mizzou, the only problem I have with that is that it seems like everyone from my high school goes there and I guess that kinda bothers me.</p>

<p>Case Western Reserve University looks nice, I'll check it out.</p>

<p>Thank you both!</p>

<p><em>Edit</em> added RIT to my list :)</p>

<p>Drexel (Philly) - strong Co-op, gives good merit to top students</p>

<p>What about Missouri University of Science & Technology in Rolla?</p>

<p>Thanks, I'll take a look at Drexel.</p>

<p>I've been to Rolla and it's just too isolated for me. I don't think I would be able to handle it. It's definitely a nice school, just not really for me.</p>

<p>Harvey Mudd in Calif has one of the highest rated Engineering programs of any LAC. </p>

<p>in the same boat as the OP - looking for <em>safeties</em> -- NOT the top rated engineering schools. The highest rated engineering schools are easy to find. We are specifically looking on the east coast (including southeast).</p>

<p>Virginia Tech, Minnesota, and Cal Poly SLO may be worth a look to see if your credentials are sufficient to be "safe" for admission there. Out of state list price is lower than at many other public universities.</p>

<p>To be a safety, the school must be affordable under pessimistic financial aid conditions.</p>
