    Is that your take on GPA? By some kind of translation? What are your predicted IBD scores?
    You are happy to be full pay? That is the biggest question IMO. Your stats are fine.

    Your GPA is on the low side for Purdue engineering. Make sure you apply EA for Purdue as they fill most of their engineering spots then and if you wait until RD there is a good chance of rejection.

    I think you should not translate your GPA on apps, right, you report as your school grades you as per IBD grading.
