I’m currently a sophomore in college right now, and I plan to transfer to a different university for Computer Engineering as an incoming junior.
School: Top 75 University (ABET-accredited program)
Major: Computer Engineering
GPA: 3.88 (My university does not offer a +/- system)
- Courses completed: General Chemistry I, Calculus 1-3, Intro CS course, English Composition, Intro ECE course, Macroeconomics, and another Gen. Ed (ALL A’s), and Physics I (Mechanics) (B)
- Courses IP (14 CR): Differential Equations (expected A), ECE course (expected A), Physics 2 (E&M) (expected B), GenEd (expected A)
Credits: 51 graded credit hours (by the end of fall)
Lifeguarding (1 year), Math Tutor/Learning Assistant (started in the fall), Internship (Summer 2020), IEEE member (1 semester), and a couple other E.Cs that I don’t think are worth mentioning
- 1 letter from my ECE professor that I know well (9/10)
- 1 letter from Calc professor, but haven’t spoken to for a semester (7/10)
High School Stats:
ACT: 26 (really low, but can’t retake due to COVID)
HS does not have class rank.
Race: Asian Male
I’m pretty open to suggestions. I just prefer a T-30 engineering school due to the opportunities that it provides upon graduation. I picked mostly reach schools since there wouldn’t be much of a difference if a transfer to a school of similar rankings.
College List so far (all of which are pretty much a reach for me):
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (in-state)
Georgia Institute of Technology
John Hopkins University
University of Washington - Seattle
Any suggestions on schools that I should apply to? How is my list so far? Should I add/remove any schools to my list?
