Can I get into the elite engineering schools in the US (MIT, Caltech, Stanford, UMich)?
I graduated sophomore year with a GPA of 3.75 but I got straight sevens in IB and a predicted grade of 42/42. I got 1600 on my SAT, 800 for my Math level 2, Math level 1, Physics subjects tests, and a 780 for Chemistry. I did the ACT and got 35 in it as well. Moreover, I did a few online college-level courses on Coursera during my sophomore year. I also have some great extras; I took part in a pre-university Science Olympiad and won a bronze medal and I participated in the BIEA competition (a national competition) where I designed my own trash-collecting amphibious vehicle.61 replies
