They don't exist! Caltech, like every other top school, looks at the "whole picture," not just test scores and grades. They'll take extracurricular activities, research, recommendations, etc. into account, and there's no "exact requirement" for those categories!

Take challenging classes, be one of the top-ranked students in your grade, show motivation, have excellent SAT scores and subject test scores. My brother was accepted a couple years ago and I don't think extra curriculars matter too much. He was exceptionally smart - took lots of running start classes at a community college nearby and had really strong subject test scores. Think he took physics and chemistry and got 800 and 760. Something like that. However, his overall SAT scores wasn't higher than a 2300. Of course his math was a 800 but the reading especially wasn't as high. He also had absolutely no community service, and the only extra curriculars he had were math league, go club, and interact club (at least i think). Caltech doesn't seem to care so much about "well rounded" students but the ones that show exceptional talent in the math and science field. Hope this helps and good luck!

Is MIT better than Purdue university?

Overall yes. But for engineering, Purdue belongs right up there with MIT, Berkeley, and UIUC. I know of a couple of people who went to Purdue ECE declining offers from Stanford and Caltech EE. But then, it also depends on the exact area within engineering.

What are MITs rival schools?

Harvard and Caltech. I completely disagree. Caltech may be in the top ten engineering schools but certainly not top five...while Harvard is not even in the top ten. The best answer is Stanford and UC Berkeley. That depends how you interpret "rival". From a ranking/academic perspective, you may be right (though I feel Caltech is comparable to MIT). From a personal/historic perspective, MIT has a long history of hacking with Caltech and Harvard (MIT stole the caltech cannon!). In the MIT student culture, Caltech and Harvard are ingrained as the main rivals.
