Basically I just copied and pasted this from the post I posted in the chances category only I just found out that SLO had its own sub category so I'm just going to post it to here too.
I know this will definitely be a reach. But should I even bother applying?
SAT: 1540 (not going to submit it though)
Cumulative GPA: 3.8889
UC/CAL GPA: 3.67
I would have taken 6 total APs by the end of high school, and 6 total honors classes.
Highest math class I've taken is AP stats/calc.
Highest science would be physics.
I have about 80+ community service hours.
However I'm going to apply for the most impacted major which is mechanical engineering.
Don't think those make a big difference, but just in case.
I do know some experiences told by some users on here, so I would love reading any other experiences regarding your acceptance, etc. It disappoints me how other people I know will probably get accepted for liberal arts, but I probably won't since engineering is overpopulated. And would I have a better chance if I decided to choose another engineering major instead of ME?
