Purdue

Thu Nov 16, 2000 10:41 am

I was wondering what the grade requirments are to get into Purdue. For the past year Ive been hooked on Purdue, and positive that i want to go there. Also I was wondering what the cost for an out of state education at Purdue would be. I am hoping to get a scholarship called "The Evans Caddie Scholarship", which would basically give me a full ride, and if i dont get that I would like to know the costs.

Btw my gpa is a 3.4 for my first 2 years in highschool, and for my first quarter of this year I have a 3.8. I havent taken any sat scores yet.

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Also, PurdueArrow I know that you were in a similar situation as me, except your grades were much better. If you happen to rely to the post could you tell me the average H.S. gpa, and sats/acts needed;thanks

I to am looking into going to pirdue when I graduate in 2002.

I have one of those big books that rate around 1500 schools, and it says the average sat scores are 540 verbal/652 math, ACT 24.

For any purdue people out there, would I have a shot with a B+/A- grade average (I don't know the number), for my first 2 years and the start of this year. I have taken advanced science course all years, 1 AP class this year, and also 1 honors course. I was looking at the requirements on the purdue web page, though they were some what general. All I saw was that I need to be in the top half of my class. I don't understand this because it is much harder being in the top half of the class at my school compared to many schools.

With the background the two above posters said they had I'm fairly certain they will get into Purdue or at least be seriously considered. Purdue is a great univ. as well as very prestigous. They aren't so anal about admission requirements but once you are in they give you a good run for your money.

I graduated in May of 99 and was out of state. I'm not sure of the exact figures but I want to say it was around 15-18,000 a year for out of state. At any rate it was without a doubt the best 4 years of my life and the whole way the univ. conducts business in all of its schools (including aviation) is truly first class.

Unfortunately, I don't really know Purdue's minimum requirements. I think that the flight admissions are more relative than in other departments, as the number of students that can be accepted is firmly limited by the number of aircraft we have. All I can tell you is that I got in... I was in about the top 20-25% of my class, had about a 3.6, a 1400 SAT (710V, 690M), and a 35 ACT. I know that it's easier for Indiana residents to get in than for the rest of us, as it is a state university. If you don't get the scholarship, I would estimate the currrent comprehensive cost (tuition, fees, room, board, books, misc., etc.) as being around $100-120,000 for four years. Feel free to ask any other questions, on here or through e-mail, and I will gladly try to answer them.

Just make sure you are American. Otherwise you won't get in to the flight program. A 35 on the ACT? That is impressive!!

Why did you take the ACT and the SAT?

I'm currently a Freshman at Cal (UC Berkeley), but I am considering transferring to Purdue next year for their Aviation Management program. My parents and other influences have pressured me to go to business school here at Berkeley, but what I really want to do is go into commercial airline management.

Does anyone know any information or know where to get more information on Purdue's Aviation Management program?

I'm graduating in December from Purdue in Electical Engineering and I'm from Colorado. The average expenses for an out of state student are about $20,000 (which includes room and board). It isn't extremely difficult to get into Purdue, but once you're there you can count on working harder than you would at most places. I wouldn't change the last 4 years.

There are two more comments I want to make after reading some of the other posts...

First, Purdue is in the process of becoming more selective. The school is pretty crowded, and by cutting back on admissions, they intend to keep it from growing. Also, they are trying to increase the caliber of Purdue student's to make our degrees more valuable. In addition, admission to the flight program is already more selective than university admissions in general due to the limiting size of our fleet.

Second, the approximation I gave for fees was for flight majors, and included the course fees for flight courses totaling 145 hours in the Warrior, 45 hours in the Arrow, 10 hours in the Duchess, 50 hours in the Frasca, and 4 semesters in the 727 simulators. These fees total $5-10,000 per year.
