Hello, I am a 16 year old girl going into junior year.
My dream is to get into the aerospace engineering program at TAMU, but I’m afraid I’m not good enough. I’m going into junior year, and I’m taking algebra 2, because I didn’t have the opportunity to skip a year ahead in math like many other students.
Here are my stats:
All regulars classes -
Algebra 1 - 99
World geo - 94
Biology - 93
English 1 - 92
Dance 1 - 100
Spanish 1 - 99
Computer applications and programming - 99
* 800 on PSAT, but this is because I was homeschooled so I didn’t learn material that could be applied to the SAT.
Some pre-ap classes -
Pre ap Geometry - 100
Pre ap chemistry - 97
World history - 100
English 2 - 98
Dance 2 - 100
Debate - 100
Spanish 2 - 98
*1030 on the PSAT. I raised it 230 points. I’m looking to raise it to a minimum of 1170.
This junior year I will be talking:
DUAL CREDIT english 3
DUAL CREDIT us history
I made it on the drill team, and I know colleges like to see activities. The year prior to making the drill team for junior year, I did competitive figure (ice) skating for 7 years.
I’m working on getting 40 volunteer hours.
Do you think it is likely I can get into TAMU for a degree in aerospace engineering?
