does it matter that i live in illinois does it help how high do i need to raise the ACT

Your ACT is on the low end (UIUC's 25% to 75% range for engineering is 29 to 33) but your class rank is the mid-range of applicants accepted (25% to 75% range is top 8% to 2%). Those are the two most important factors. You have a chance. Get ACT up two points and you could breath easier, get it up just one and you raise chance by a good margin. You will need a good essay. Apply before November 15 as that is UIUC's priority date -- it has rolling admissions but states that those who get everything in by November 15 have an advantage over any submitted after that date.

UIUC admits by the numbers. They have a grid with GPA and ACT/SAT. The higher the ACT, the lower the GPA that is needed and vice versa. It's been a few years since I looked, but as I recall, the information came with the application package.

Yes it sure does mattter u r living in illinois. they prefer u over out of state students. but the thing is that, such schools have only like 5% out of state students. so all the average act/gpa/rank is of instate students.
Plus engineering is the hardest major of all at uiuc, i m too an instate student and i have a 1360 sat, and havent taken any acts and dont plan to take them either

Check collegeboard.com and act.org for upcoming test dates of the ACT and SAT. I believe you still have time to take both and get scores to the school before November 15. If you submit both ACT and SAT, they consider the one they believe to be the higher.
UMich for out of state and engineering is at least as hard to get into as UIUC. Purdue would be close to a safety. As to where else to look, it really depends on how far away you intend to go from Illinois as the list could easily be over 100 if you include the entire US. Others in Illinois include Bradley, UIllinois Chicago campus (easier to get into), and Northwestern. Some not too far away are Iowa State, Wisconsin, Rose-Hulman (IN), Washington University in St. Louis.

a 30 on the act is equal to 1350 on the sat at uiuc. Frankly, i visited the uiuc campus and didnt like it. a dull place in the middle of no where! but its my personal opinion of course ..... if u wanna stay close to home...umich...saint louis u....u of illi. chicago are some good options...but uiuc is surely gonna be cheaper than other schools.
By the way how did u already take your ap calc and ap physics exam?
|By Uiuchopeful (Uiuchopeful) on Thursday, August 28, 2003 - 05:46 pm: Edit|
