I wasn't a great student in high schoolFeb 14 2014Electrical Engineering
I wasn't a great student in high school. got around 3.3 with little to no effort. Pulled a 31 on my ACT with a 35 in math which helped when trying to get into engineering. I'm a good writer too, so my essays were pretty on point. What probably put me over the edge the though were my parents being legacies and a letter of recomendation from the superintendent of my school district who used to play football for the Badgers.
ACT: 31 Male
