Essay (23) |
First off grades are very important. I feel Tech is also looking for students that are well rounded too. I don't think they want the super kid who did every club in High School, but doesn't actually have a passion for anything. They look more for someone who may have played a sport or been on a robotics team and actually shows passion and commitment towards that activity. The school also seems to be trying to break its nerd image with every incoming freshman class being smarter, but also less nerdy than the last.

getting in is REALLY hard. before the SAT changed you need at lest 1100 (on slow years) to get in. if you have at that you will need at lest a 3.5 or better in high school.This is also means u come from a highly ranked school system.

I know a gal how was 1/278 in her graduation class. 1120 SAT and soft ball player. She got condisonal accptance.
you will need to look at extra creliculers. Like math team sciance team. the sports program helps very little for getting in.
Try to get above a 1250 sat to increase your chances. Be involved in leadership activities, sports and extra-curricular activities. Also, make sure that your high school gpa is above a 3.0 cause that really helps

Fill out the application. That's it. A bit of advice, they are not just looking for solid academics. They are looking for well-rounded leaders. They want to see how you went just a little bit further than people who just made good grades and test scores. If you're in-state, you're pretty much accepted. Out-of-state, you had better held a leadership position, played a sport, joined a band, a youth group, or something, as well as made a decent GPA and SAT/ACT scores. It's not too tough to get in, but the cut for the President's Scholarship is pretty tough. They want to see that you're special, unique. That somehow you're set apart from the others.
