1 year of Robotics (freshman year, qualified to the state level)

Went on a mission trip into west China during freshman year for a week to teach the kids there english and history.
Was part of a club in my school where we mentored the unprivileged students in the district. We met up with the kids every 2 weeks.

    I would say that you almost certainly will get into the Engineering program at TAMU.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be accepted. However, just in case you didn't know, you'll be placed into General Engineering for the first year at A&M along with everyone else. It is only after your second semester that you can apply for your major, and the Computer Science major only accepts people who have a 3.5+ for their overall GPA. Everyone else has basically zero chance of getting in.

    You’ll definitely be admitted to gen engineering! Then make the 3.5 gpa and take required courses to satisfy ETAM and you’ll be golden. Nicely done!!!
