Hello, I am a freshman student in high school and I am interested in Carnegie Mellon even though my user name is CooperUnion. I would like to get a general idea of the grades and SAT scores of some students who have gotten into the school. For whomever provides any information at all, I greatly appreciate it.
I had SAT scores below the average (but a relatively high ACT score), my SAT IIs weren't amazing (average), and my grades were pretty great (3.87, mostly APs and honors). Basically, CMU looks at people at a whole, not just as test scores and grades. My ECs are waaay above average, my essay was personal and well written, and my portfolio for the architecture school was of high quality.
I just got accepted to CFA, Arch, btw.
Hey! Whoaness Im a Senior in a Private high school and am applying ED to CMU Arch. i did their Pre-College program and got high marks and a really good recommendation from Don Johnson? maybe you know him haha. Anyways, my current ACT score is 29, and i will be taking that again as well as the Math 1 and Physics..hoping to get aroudn 650 on each....what were your scores? i have a pretty good portfolio and in it includes a couple self portraits...arch models that i designed...photographs....what did you include in your portfolio? My GPA is around 3.3 unweighted...i only took 1 AP my whole highschool...yikes and a lot of honors courses which i got mostly B+s in and some As. I was wondering also what your highschool curriculum was like? Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks so much
I might be applying ED and I have taken 2 Ap's 10th grade, 4 11th grade, and am scheduled to take 5 12th grade. i think it really depends on the school you are going to, does your school offer a lot of aps?
