Hi, I would like to enter a college with a pretty good engineering program, but not an Ivy or anything even near that, because I couldn't ever qualify. Im going to be a senior in high school.
GPA: 3.65 (will be 3.7)
SAT1: 1160 (want to reach 1250+)
Do I need SAT 2's??
Rank: 88/850 (yes, 850)
AP's will have taken after senior year:
AP Calculus AB
AP English lang.
Ill probably get 4's or 5's and all of these.
I live in Washington State, does the University of Washington have a good Engineering program? (Ya know, money saving)
Where would be the best engineering program? It doesnt matter where it is. Im good at math (straight A's throughtout high school).
Pretty much nothing as far as EC's go.

University of Washington has an excellent engineering school. Some others to consider (and there are likely many more even at your current SAT, but it would help to get it up) are: Gonzaga, University of Colorado, University of Arizona, Arizona State, California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo, Purdue (IN), Texas A&M, Iowa State, North Carolina State, Florida Tech, Bradley (IL), Illinois Institute of Technology, Kettering (MI). I do not believe any of those require SAT II's. Not sure what your comment about "money saving" meant but obviously you are likely to have a lower tuition at Washington as a resident than any private or out-of-state school.

That is what I meant about money-saving. If I go to a college in Washington, the total cost is lower. So, UW has a good engineering program? Hmmmmm.....
Thanks! Anyone else?

The UW is a great school for engineering, it's where my dad got his degrees (electrical). I'd say it's easily your best most cost effective bet in Washington State. For the Admissions Index for automatic admission, you need about a 78, which with a 3.7 GPA is a 1210 on the SAT's. I think that score is definitely within your reach. What school do you go to? I'm at Inglemoor and I thought we had a big senior class 620

I did my BSEE at USC and my MSEE at UCLA, both top 25 engineering schools. I would say that most UC's have a decent engineering program as well. However, the crown jewel programs will always be Stanford and CAL. But many engineering programs require very HIGH standards. Try to raise it to about 3.8, 1400 if possible.
