    Thanks, I appreciate it. My advice get it done early, there is only one downside to getting it done early...you get to wait longer! But the wait is well worth it, if it means you get the appointment and going to one of the top institutions in the world!

    WP2017,
    You look like you have a strong file. Only drawback is your reading score on the SAT. I recommend that you take the ACT as well.

    Did you fill out an employers evaluation form?

    Good luck:thumb:

    Yes, the employer evaluation form was filled out. Yeah, I understand, the reading score is a weak point but hopefully I do better this go around. In regards to the ACT, I took it twice and my scores were very weak in comparison to the SAT.

    Definitely, it is an accomplishment just finishing the application process, much less to get accepted. It's not something that you can procrastinate haha. Hopefully ill be seeing you around in a couple of years.

    I would be thrilled if you would keep me posted. I start my applications at the first of the year, and it would be great if you could give me some advice as questions arise.

    Looks Like You're On Track

    In my opinion, your on track. Having a year at Texas A&M is a huge plus with a 4.0 gpa. This shows you can keep the pace academically if your classes are the same as your WP first year. (Chem w/lap, Calc, college level english)

    Keep us posted on your MOC nom.

    Push Hard, Press Forward

    I will definitely keep everyone posted and will answer any questions anyone has. My current courses are Engineering Calc, Chemistry, Chem Lab, geography, psychology and running. Getting a 4.0 comes down to my final test in psychology
