    Oh, and I will most likely be applying to MCS not SCS

    What's not to like, especially cheerleading, which tends to be underrepresented at schools like CMU! Only other items: Financial Aid? Race? Other hooks (legacy, etc.).

    I'd say you have an excellent chance, if not a shoe-in :) Good luck

    I'd say you are very likely to get into MCS (unless you do terribly on the Math and Physics SAT II's).

    You're as good as in. Don't worry too much about the subject tests, but get in at least the 600s, they give the SAT IIs very little consideration.
