By Anonymous on Tuesday, December 17, 2002 - 04:02 am: Edit

I want to get into a good engineering college and I just want to know what some accepted people have done etc.

By Me12345 (Me12345) on Wednesday, December 18, 2002 - 08:11 pm: Edit

Aight, I had my stats somewhere else, but I'll post them again...

By Me12345 (Me12345) on Wednesday, December 18, 2002 - 08:13 pm: Edit

SAT's: 1420... 800 math, 620 verbal (I don't think that verbal is all that important to the Engineering schools)

Math 2C: 800
Physics: 760
Writing: 690

My GPA was only about 3.7 but I come from a prestigious public school. And they don't do class ranks.

Although I wasn't a member of 20 different clubs, I was deeply involved in the activities in which I did participate. Here's a list of the main ones.

-I was a member of the Crew (rowing) team grades 10-12 and a co-captain senior year. This is fall and spring crew.
-I was in the band since 5th grade
-School bowling (yes, bowling) team grades 10-12
-CTY Summer program (Center for Talented Youth) for 5 years, I loved it, and if anyone else has been there, they will know what I mean
-National Honors Society member
-I am involved in my synagogue. I am a member of USY (United Synagogue Youth), a jewish youth group.
-I actually did have a job this summer, which is prolly quite rare for ivy league students, since most are stereotypically rich snobs who travel all over England every summer. So if you want an ivy league school, something unique to have on your transcript could be something as simple as a job.
-I also was involved in a good amount of volunteer work (don't ask me the number of hours, I did it out of the goodness of my heart, not for the hours)

Those were the main ones. I did write a 2 page resume listing all the activities I did, but those are the ones I really care about.

My essays were what I would call decent (there are 5 of them, so I definitely ran out of steam after a while) I don't think that engineering schools care all that much about the essays anyways.

I think my recommendations were also great.

I was deferred... architecture program. It surprised me, since my GPA is horrid (it's a 3.0 unweighted) but it seems like they looked at other things. My portfolio was very strong and my essay and letters were quite good. I also have a 1420 on the SATs, and my interview went extremely well. I'm very hopeful about getting another shot out of it, and maybe I'll see TsunamiBomb there next year!

Congrats on the acceptances and deferrals, and good luck to the rejections, you never know... you might get accepted to an even better school ;)

By TsunamiBomb on Saturday, December 28, 2002 - 08:12 pm: Edit

oh, i hope i do see you there next year...be sure to post back if you get accepted. good luck!
