My oldest is a rising senior and will be applying as a computer engineering major. His stats are OOS (TX), w4.07, uw 3.32, SAT 1260 (math 670, reading 590), ACT 25, top 28% at rigorous suburban HS, 7 APs, math through CalcBC, 4 yrs of Chinese, 4 yrs football, 2 yrs band, 2 yrs Chinese National honor society. I remember reading something about Alabama being more lenient at the beginning of the app cycle. Is this still the case, and should he apply now? He didn't study much for those test sittings, but is studying this summer to retake in the fall to be eligible for scholarships.
