    @Collegiate Dreams
    Wow you should definitely be admitted to Cal Poly with those stats. Just wondering, are you applying to UCLA as well because I think you have a good chance there too.

    Any others?
  • CollegiateDreamsCollegiateDreams Registered User Posts: 980 Member
    Hopefully I will be admitted, but I know engineering is pretty competitive. I'm also applying to UCs like UCLA, Berkeley, UCSD, etc. along with some private school.

    @sfgiantsposey Wow yeah we're almost identical! Hopefully that's a good thing! I just went on the tour/info session last last Monday and they gave us this cool little brochure that had all the averages for last years admitted students. For Orfalea, I think you and I are both right on track, just a little ABOVE the average. Hopefully I'll see you there!

    Another bonus of being accepted to Cal Poly SLO--a long summer for fun and hopefully earning some extra $$: 2014-15 Academic Calendar - Office of the Registrar - Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo

    Software Engineering
    CSU Gpa: 4.0
    ACT: 31 super scored
    ECs: 11-15 with leadership
    Work: 11-15 unrelated
    Starting my junior year, I took classes at the local college instead of at my High School. I do have 2 AP classes under my belt and 5 college classes, not including the ones from this year. Out of the 5 college classes, 3 were English, one was Pre-Calculus, and the other was Psychology.
    I think I was rejected for Early Decision so I'm really hoping to get in Regular Decision.

    Two questions. first, when do they send regular decision (like when do they start). And two, is computer engineering harder to get into than computer science?
  • Mbarnes18Mbarnes18 Registered User Posts: 13 New Member
    When does regular decision get released?
