I am from Western PA, looking for a decent sized school for engineering or education.

GPA - 3.6
SAT- 930
I never do good on these kinds of tests, however I am retaking them in December.

I have a bunch of EC's, etc..

Well, I was hoping to get into Penn State main or Pitt main, but I don't see that happening. I might have to settle for a branch campus, unless you help me out on this.

Purdue in West Lafayette, IN is good for engineering.. not terribly difficult to get accepted to either.

I agree with the Purdue suggestion.

Also, try taking the ACT instead of the SAT if you don't do well on the SAT. It's allegedly the easier of the two...

Purdue isn't that difficult to get into if you are from Indiana but out of state it is hard. Why would you say Purdue is easier than Penn State anyway when Purdue is ranked higher in engineering than Penn State?
I agree, take the ACT - it is easier than the SAT. But if you can't break 600 on the math portion of the SAT you should look at something other than engineering. The math will kill you no matter what college you go to.

I am very good at math. I think I messed up marking them somehow on the test.
