illinois- match... you have the test scores for it, ec's are good, gpa is alright, but class rank may hurt a little since you don't make top 10%, and they're very numbers oriented with admissions i hear. but i guess it depends on your high school profile, so you might be alright. and if you're out of state, then it'll cost you dearly. uiuc is very stingy with scholarships, so you might want to look heavily into private scholarships.
wisconsin- i think you'll get in there. i don't know much about it, but people have suggested to me purdue and wisconsin as safeties for me, so if you got into purdue, you'll get into wisconsin.
notre dame- i never considered it for my list, so i don't know about that one.
purdue- congratulations! i also got accepted there. quite exciting to get accepted so early in senior year. just wondering, are you strongly considering going there, or just having it as a safety?

Ck, Thaks for the info. About purdue, I just visited there on Monday and I really liked the campus. They had this women in engineering preview day, which is why I went down. They have a pretty strong engineering program (top ten i think) and the whole day was a fun experience. It is a matchy-saftey. There engineering program is easy to get into but hard to stay in (or so ';ve heard.) While I liked purdue, it's really expensive for out of state, and since I live in Illinois, UofI offers similar experiences, so I'll prob end up there.
