    @CopperlineX2 just psychology, but my understanding is that every undergraduate major is super impacted. I could be wrong though
  • CopperlineX2CopperlineX2 Registered User Posts: 511 Member
    @bumblbee I’m embarrassed to say I confused this with the CPP thread. You are correct that CP is impacted campus wide. Most acceptances seem to come out over a 2 week period from mid to late Feb. Good luck!

    Impacted, by CSU definition, simply means that more applicants apply than they have slots for. That means not everyone who applies gets in. Beyond that, the level of impaction can only be determined by the projections page.

    Okay! Thank you so much @CopperlineX2 @eyemgh

    What's the acceptance rate for City and Regional Planning?
  • bogeyorparbogeyorpar Registered User Posts: 782 Member
    @xafl134 , you are 100% accepted. Maybe the only History major in the whole school though ...

    Current Cal Poly SLO freshman majoring in animal science here! I know that this is a tense time for a lot of you awaiting decisions, but be patient and know that everything happens for a reason and that you will end up at an amazing school!
    If you have any questions about freshman life, animal science major, or anything else in between ask away :D

    Would you mind posting your stats? I applied Animal Science as well and want to get an idea of what my chances are. Thanks!

    Keep in mind that the stats posted aren't necessarily going to make you feel better at all. In fact, they may make you more nervous. While Cal Poly is a numbers school, a composite ACT may not be reflective of the Math and English scores (the only ones they look at). The GPA needs to be the A-G Cal State gpa. The ECs need to be quantified in hours spent and leadership. There are numerous other factors and we may not even know what they are. If you are admitted, fantastic. If you aren't, then it was just not the right fit for you and that is okay. It in no way reflects upon your work ethic or you as a person. It bears repeating that "where you go is not who you'll be". Please relax and take @Ritzcrackers01 's advice.

    Hello everyone! I'm a second year Cal Poly Art and Design student in the Graphic Design Concentration. I remember very clearly how stressful this time was for me! If you're interested, the date of my acceptance was March 11th but the delay was due to the portfolio review process required by my major. I applied with a weighted GPA of 4.3, an old SAT score of 1620/2400 (clearly not important for my major), substantial extra-curricular activities, a few CC classes, and a decent portfolio.

    If you guys have any questions about campus life, the art program, and academics please let me know and I'll be happy to answer!

    CP is my son's reach school. He didn't really push his freshman year - was thinking that most CA public schools just look at 10/11. He has a steady upward progression grade wise, good test scores and 6 APs. Just wondering if we should even hold out hope with 65K apps!
    CP GPA - 3.77
    SAT - 1400
    MCA - 4300-4400
    major - Architectural Engineering

    Does he even have a chance?
