    From what I have read here and other blogs, it is not acceptance based solely on scores, but majors, number is f applicants for the major and only then the scores. So a high score may be rejected and a lower score accepted but different majors.

    ME is very strong at Cal Poly. It's the backbone of the CENG and one of the best departments in the nation. Congrats!

    Got accepted as a Transfer into Cal Poly SLO's accounting program. 3.76 GPA all pre-reqs complete. I'm thinking about declining my acceptance in favor of CSUN. I know SLO is the cooler school but I like living in the valley.
