I really want to attend Purdue University and major in Physics; however, I got a horrendous ACT math score (22) compared to the rest of my scores which were great (33 English, 33 reading, 28 science), making a 29 composite. I'm retaking the ACT on December 14, but Purdue's deadline to list your major on your application is November 8, or else you won't be considered for scholarships. I know that although I have a good GPA (3.83), with that math score I won't even be considered for Purdue's physics program. Should I list it as my major still and hope that they reconsider after they see my second test, or apply as another major I will get in for sure, then try to change it later? Purdue is kind of odd because you're accepted directly into the program you want, and it can be hard to change programs. Advice? Also, any physics "success stories" would be great of people who never took it and and still ended up successful in university!
