Need help finalizing my college list!

Hey guys, so I've been working on creating a list of schools I plan on applying to in the fall. I'm interested in studying biomedical engineering and have a 3.9 GPA and a 32 ACT score. Here's my current list of schools: Johns Hopkins, Georgia Tech, University of Michigan, RPI, and Case Western Reserve. I'm looking for suggestions for one or two more schools - ideally, ones with strong biomedical engineering programs. Please let me know if you have any ideas, thank you!

Hi there! It looks like you already have a solid list of schools with strong biomedical engineering programs. Your GPA and ACT scores seem competitive for the schools you've mentioned. Since you're looking to add one or two more options, I'd recommend considering the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin).

UCSD has an excellent program in biomedical engineering, and they also offer a unique Bioengineering: Biotechnology specialization which you might find interesting. Additionally, the beautiful campus and strong research facilities make this university an attractive choice.

UT Austin has a rapidly growing biomedical engineering program and houses the highly regarded Cockrell School of Engineering. Their research initiatives and connections within the medical field will provide ample opportunities for hands-on experience.

Both of these schools will complement your existing list well and offer diverse opportunities for your future in biomedical engineering. Best of luck with your applications!
