S is interested in CS and Engineering but this is not set in stone. He is pondering applying as undecided, especially to more selective schools.
Very true...and a great reminder. S shows interests in CS and Engineering, but part of him also wants to 'keep the door' open and explore what he wants in life. If he wants to go undecided then that would be his choice. We just need to make sure to carefully choose the offerings to ensure the 'doors' are open should he decide to pursue STEM in the end.
Not all schools are like this though. E.g. Undecided can declare CS or Engineering as long as they can achieve minimum GPA requirements in the required core courses.
