Hi. This is my first post! I am the parent of a sophomore who is probably a mid D1 level athlete but will likely go to a D2/D3 school to better balance academics with his sport. We live out West but he is OK moving away. He is interested in STEM: likely engineering, computer sciences, or physics. 3.94 UWGPA. (got a B in honors math this COVID semester, errrrr). I think he will test well. I suspect over 31 ACT; 1400+ SAT. We won’t qualify for financial aid. Don’t care about D2 athletic money. Merit money would be nice.
So I’ve ruled out MIT and Caltech entirely because those schools seem preposterous to get in. Also Harvey Mudd.
Here’s a list of schools. This might be an unfair question but what would be your top 5 and why? Thanks in advance for considering this!
Wash Univ St.L
Trinity Univ (Texas)
Univ Texas Dallas
Colorado Schools Mines
