Hi, Im wondering if I am aiming too high for gradschool in aerospace engineering. I am going for a PhD. Major GPA (mechanical) 3.68 from a fairly well known school -Have also taken a lot of advanced undergrad classes, and will take two graduate level classes next year. Member of university's aerospace club -independent study with club -we have designed and are currently building our own remote controlled plane REU at a top 20 university Internship at NASA Hope to do another independent study next year Two years of tutoring, I won an award as an outstanding tutor At least 2 excellent letters, and the other one should be good Havent taken GRE. Not worried about the quantitative, a little worried about verbal. Schools I am applying to for aerospace: MIT Georgia Tech Michigan Cornell Maryland Princeton Illinois Purdue Penn State Minnesota Obviously no can really predict whether or not I will get in, but do you think I will at least be competitive?
