I’m a senior at a Texas high school who moved to Austin halfway through my sophomore year from Portland, Oregon. About 2 months after that school went virtual, and remained that way until the beginning of my senior year. I plan on applying to the Texas A&M School of Engineering at College Stations before October 15th(Early action deadline). I classify as an in-state student, yet I am not sure about my chances to get into A&M Engineering. I was wondering if anyone could help me determine my chances?
(I’m also a first-generation student.)
Unweighted GPA: 3.62
Weighted GPA: 4.76
Class Rank: 192 out of about 650 students in my class
SAT: Highest → 1370 (Still attempting)
ACT: Highest → 31 (Still attempting)
I would graduate with about 29 credits in the STEM field with Honors.
I would have taken 15 AP classes by the time I graduate with those being: Environmental Science, World History, Statistics, Biology, English III, Seminar, Art History, Research, Literature, Macroeconomics(1-semester course), Government(1-semester course), AP Physics C: Mechanics( 1 course counts for both Mechanics and Electricalicity and Magnetism), Calculus BC, Computer Science A.
Extracurriculars-(Probably my weakest portion):
Car Club Founder - Recently started a club about designing car parts using 3D modeling software(Autodesk Inventor)
Student Council Member- 2 years(by the time I graduate)
DASH(Drugs, Alcohol, Safety, and Health) Committee member - 2 years(by the time I graduate)
Graphic Design Club Member - 1 year(by the time I graduate)
Side-note: I didn’t have that many opportunities to join clubs after moving, and then spending my junior year virtually.
Letter of Recommendation:
I believe I will be getting about 3 recommendation letters.
