    @Calpolyplease: To which major are you applying?
  • roxy401roxy401 Registered User Posts: 100 Junior Member
    Hey @eyemgh‌ What do you know about the selectivity for architectural engineering? I can find information about the college of arch, but I can't find anything about the major specifically. I am guessing that I have about a 70% chance of getting in based on my stats and what I have read so far.

    Also, how much does it help that I am from out of state and won't be applying for financial aid?

    @eyemgh‌ You are very knowledgeable about this topic, so maybe you could give me the most accurate hypothesis. I I am dying waiting for a response from cal poly so anything helps.

    Architectural Engineering
    Out of State applicant (Texas)
    Not applying for financial aid
    5 years of high school math
    4 years of english
    4 years of spanish
    2 years of fine arts
    4 years of science
    SAT: 690 math, 590 reading
    CSU GPA: 3.77
    11-15 hours of extra curricular w/ leadership position (swimming)
    I checked the box that I would like to participate in varsity athletics (swimming)
    21+ hours of work/week not related to major
    And I have 44 hours of college credit before I graduate high school

    Also, 5 students applied from my school last year. 4 were accepted and one was waitlisted (I'm not sure if they got in or not) 2 of which had lower stats than me.

    And to anyone who wants to chance me, I won't get offended, I have already submitted my binding contract so theres no taking it back anyways, I just want to know what to expect because I am going crazy just waiting to hear back.

    @roxy401, I don't "chance" posters. There's really no solid way to know. I do give advice on how applicants can strengthen their chances, but that's only when they have time to alter their record. It's really not germane to you. What I can tell you is that about 50% of AE applicants get accepted. I really don't know though how your stats stack up in the major. Sorry. Good luck!
