    I got rejected for EE today also.

    GPA: 3.95
    SAT: 1370/2060
    ACT: 31

    CP was one of the few out of state schools I'd consider going to. Oh well.

    Rejected for AE today
    GPA - 3.6
    SAT - 2010
    blahblah. Cal Poly was one of my 50/50 schools. Hopefully I'll be accepted at Pomona now

    My son was rejected for ME today also. Not surprising, but a little disappointing.

    GPA: 3.55
    ACT 28

    No work experience

    It looks like he is going to be accepted to Cal Poly Pomona though. He got an email from the ME dept inviting him to Engineering Day and saying that their department has recommended him for admission for Fall 2010 to their program. It congratulated him because it said that they had way more applicants than they had space for.

    Good luck to everyone else!

    Cal Poly was my dream school and I just can't believe how competitive Cal Poly is this year.
  • akadavidsmomakadavidsmom Registered User Posts: 162 Junior Member
    ^ Sorry BlaBlaBoi. I know it's disappointing. Where else have you applied? Have you been to other campuses as well?
    I was really hoping that my son would get into SLO also because of the reputation, location, and price. :(

    Good luck with your other choices.

    I applied to Cal Poly Pomona, all the UCs, USC and Harvey Mudd.

    As of today, I got accepted into UCR, UCI (got into their honors program too)

    Cal Poly is my first rejection....
  • akadavidsmomakadavidsmom Registered User Posts: 162 Junior Member
    Awww...congrats on your acceptances! My son hasn't heard from UCI yet. You'll be fine...SLO is just really hard to get into.

    It's hard to believe some of you were turned down... definitely a very competitive major so don't feel bad. Blabla, I had stats lower than yours and I got in under business administration... obviously less competitive.
