    I would like to add that I am not in the top 10% of my graduating class, however I am in the top 25%. I do not know my actual rank because my school does not rank out of top 10%

    @AliBaba8958 I think you have an excellent chance. Your math scores are amazing and they really look at that for eng. admissions. Also, your ECs and course rigor are good. These are weird times for sure, so it's good you are ahead of the game.

    Please note that TAMU admits into general engineering as a freshman. You'll need a 3.75 in your first year and apply ETAM (entry to a major) to be guaranteed your first choice. There are certain course requirements freshman year as well that must be completed in order to move into the ETAM process at the end of freshman year.

    Best of luck. Work hard and enjoy your senior year.

    @AliBaba8958 Great job! I concur with the above.

    If your school offers AP Chemistry, I strongly encourage you to take it. It will allow you to build a strong foundation in chemistry, which you will appreciate when taking chemistry at college.
