How can I improve my Graduate school application to a top 10 Engineering school?

Well your grades and school you’ll be finishing from are decent to begin with - not PERFECT as you outline, but decent.

Here’s how to improve it further (in order of importance):

  • Finish stronger than you started - if you can push up any of those grades than so be it - make it happen
  • Research publications (time permitting) would help - alongside anything you could get published is a big boost (the more recognised journals the better)
  • Internships - the most prestigious/grad school related the better
  • Letters of Recommendation - make them strong
  • Write an excellent statement of purpose
  • Extra curricular pursuits that you excel in won’t harm you

Try all these on for size :slight_smile:
