I'm a white California female, 100k single-parent income, will be 16 at graduation. Will being a female in engineering help my low math score? I missed probability questions, so I'm not worried about my math ability, just that my lower in comparison math score will hurt my chances. Also, what are the most to least competitive engineering majors? Thanks!
