    You need to calculate your Eligibility Index and see where that compares to admitted students for CS.
    https://secure.csumentor.edu/planning/high_school/elig_index_calculator.asp

    I don't see a year of visual or performing arts. It is a requirement for students for admission. Practical arts isn't the same thing.

    Can you afford CP-SLO?
    You are responsible for full fees as an out of state student. $40K per year. There is no financial aid for OOS students.
    Affirmative action is illegal in California so, ethnic diversity isn't a qualifying factor.

    You have a competitive GPA but your ACT score is low (average 33). Also, SLO uses an MCA score instead of an eligibility index to rank applicants. Around a 4700 is competitive.

    CS has about a 10% acceptance rate and is the most difficult admit at SLO.

    What are your Math and English ACT section scores? SLO only uses these scores in their MCA calculation.

    I would say Low Reach- High Match.

    I applied to the Architecture major at Cal Poly SLO and would love some input on what you guys think my chances are. I can't seem to find any stats for architecture and I'm not sure how competitive it is compared to other majors.

    My stats:
    OOS girl
    CSU UWGPA: 3.66
    WGPA: 3.97
    ACT Composite: 31
    ACT (just Math and English): 34
    MCA: 4425
    3 APs including AB Calc

    Let me know if anyone has any insight on the architecture major as I can't find anything with stats for it. Thanks
